About this book

Principles and Practice of Cancer Infectious Diseases is a comprehensive and insightful work dedicated to elucidating the problem of infections in cancer patients. This essential volume reviews common and less often encountered infections, while establishing the difficulties behind preventing, diagnosing, and treating infectious diseases in cancer patients. Key sections are devoted to the presentation of clinical symptoms and the identification of major etiologic agents. A cadre of leading clinicians provide a detailed assessment of the risk factors for various infections, critical strategies in preventing and managing infections, and study of the interactions between the pathogen and host's immune function and inflammatory response. With its in-depth knowledge and concise treatment of the distinct facets of infections in cancer patients, this volume is an indispensible tool for all infectious disease specialists and clinical oncologists.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book describes the prognosis, assessment of risk factors, and common infectious problems in patients with cancer, along with conditions that mimic infectious processes in patients undergoing chemotherapy. … This book will be a useful resource for infectious disease fellows, oncology clinicians, or infectious disease practitioners taking care of patients in the bone marrow transplant unit. … Overall, this is a good read.” (Cezarina Mindru, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2012)
