About this book

Introduction

This book provides state-of-the-art information on advances in the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary aspergillosis to help specialists and clinical practitioners make appropriate decisions concerning the management of patients with this condition.

The incidence of pulmonary aspergillosis has increased steadily due to the widespread use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, cytotoxic drugs, immunosuppressive agents and adrenal hormones, as well as the growing number of organ transplantations and AIDS patients. The book discusses various aspects of the disease, including its history, characteristics, laboratory examination, imaging features, clinical diagnosis, differential diagnosis and treatment principles, and also presents illustrated case studies.

Focusing on different characteristics in imaging and pathology, and addressing diagnostic difficulties in-depth, this clinical reference work brings together recent clinical investigations to making it a valuable resource for practitioners in the fields of respiratory and infectious diseases, oncology, intensive care, diagnostic imaging, pathology and microbiology.
