The Symposium on Paracoccidioidomycosis, held in Medellin, Colombia in 1971, was the first attempt to bring all the outstanding Latin-American scientists together and compile the existing data on this fascinating disease. Ten years have passed, and Drs. del Negro, da Silva Lacaz and Fiorillo have produced a second monograph which, without a doubt, is the most complete and current on this topic. With the help of 37 experts in this field, the authors have edited 27 chapters (21 in Portuguese and 6 in Spanish) covering both the basic and clinical aspects of paracoccidioidomycosis. One must appreciate the hard work involved to update 10 years of active research on this disease. Each chapter not only covers a specific topic in detail, but terminates with an exhaustive reference list.

The book begins with a chapter on the history of paracoccidioidomycosis written by Dr. Carlos da Silva Lacaz, a scholar and mycologist who has been intimately acquainted with the evolution of this fungal problem since its discovery in Brazil in 1908.
