THIS BOOK PROVIDES COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION ON FUNGAL INFECTIONS OF THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS). FUNGAL INFECTIONS ARE STILL A MAJOR PUBLIC HEALTH CHALLENGE FOR MOST OF THE DEVELOPING WORLD AND EVEN FOR DEVELOPED COUNTRIES DUE TO THE RISING NUMBERS OF IMMUNE COMPROMISED PATIENTS, REFUGEE MOVEMENTS, AND INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL. ALTHOUGH FUNGAL INFECTIONS INVOLVING THE CNS ARE NOT PARTICULARLY COMMON, WHEN THEY DO OCCUR, THE RESULTS CAN BE DEVASTATING IN SPITE OF RECENT ADVANCES AND CURRENTLY AVAILABLE THERAPIES. FURTHER, OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE INCIDENCE OF THESE INFECTIONS HAS SEEN A STEEP RISE AMONG IMMUNODEFICIENT PATIENTS. IN THIS CONTEXT, AGGRESSIVE SURGERY REMAINS THE MAINSTAY OF MANAGEMENT, BUT CONSERVATIVE ANTIFUNGAL DRUG TREATMENT COMPLEMENTED BY AGGRESSIVE SURGICAL DEBRIDEMENT MAY BE NECESSARY. YET THE OPTIMAL MANAGEMENT APPROACH TO FUNGAL INFECTIONS OF THE CNS REMAINS CONTROVERSIAL, OWING TO THE LIMITED INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE AND THE VARIABLE CLINICAL COURSE OF THE CONDITIONS. ADDRESSING THAT PROBLEM, THIS COMPREHENSIVE BOOK OFFERS THE IDEAL RESOURCE FOR NEUROSURGEONS, NEUROLOGISTS AND OTHER SPECIALISTS WORKING WITH INFECTIOUS DISEASES.<P></P>
