About this book


Fungal infections in the female play an increasingly large role in everyday gynecological practice. This is the first book to deal comprehensively with vulvovaginal candidosis. Following an introduction outlining the incidence of yeasts in man, genital colonization in the female sex, yeast in pregnancy and neonatal mycoses, there is a description of the modes of infection and the known host reactions, as well as of the symptoms for diagnosis and therapy. Some 150 color illustrations depict all known facultative pathogenetic candida species and other potentially pathogenetic yeasts in pure culture and under the microscope. Clinical examples help explain the diagnosis and differential diagnosis. The volume provides the physician with handy, concise and practice-oriented guidelines to correct diagnosis and effective treatment of yeasts in the female patient.
