Written by one of the very few pathologists who has real expertise in this field, this book is a comprehensive key for the identification of fungal infections in tissues. With updated terminology and presentation, all invasive mycoses-types are covered, detailing their epidemiology, pathology, histomorphology of fungal elements, and differential diagnoses. Each of the separate fungal groups has a good combination of text and high-quality illustrations which is a critical feature for clinicians to state the mycopathological diagnoses.
1. Elaborates on the histological observations of both the pathological reaction and the histomorphology of fungal elements, guiding the reader in the right direction for obtaining a diagnosis of the infection.
2. Includes key observations that can be a game-changer for infectious diseases specialists and histopathologists studying the combination of fungal morphology and host response.
3. Follows a logical layout, structure, and organization with a wealth of high-quality illustrations of the various fungi in tissues elucidated by different stains.
Professor Henrik Elvang Jensen has served as a pathologist for nearly 40 years and has had the privilege of receiving fungal infection cases from all over the world for diagnostic consultation. Therefore, he has been able to collect several cases of almost all kinds of invasive fungal infections in humans and animals. Moreover, he has on a yearly basis given lectures and courses on the histomorphological diagnosis of mycoses in several countries and arranged pre-congress workshops at different world congresses including the ISHAM congresses in Berlin (2012), Melbourne (2015), Amsterdam (2018) on the same topic. During the years, he has published more than 100 peer review papers and chapters in textbooks and being a co-author of more international guidelines all dealing with the histopathological diagnosis of invasive mycoses.
