Professor Vanbreuseghem has acquiesced to requests by his colleagues and former students to compose a book dedicated solely to the mycotic diseases of man and animals.

These are presented under 15 subheadings and include brief comments on the etiology, geographic distribution, epidemiology, diagnostic techniques, and treatment of the disease(s) with respect to the individual species involved.
