Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Outlining the best means of infection management and emphasizing early recognition and identification of pathogens, this trailblazing volume pinpoints the distinct immunodeficiencies related to specific malignancies that result in predictable opportunistic infections-containing accessible reviews of the latest scientific research, reports from the forefront of clinical practice, and copious illustrations and tables to be of maximal benefit to the reader.

Book News Annotation:

The 39 chapters in this volume identify the infections most commonly encountered in patients with each type of cancer malignancy, and characterize susceptibility to different infections over the course of a chronic progressive malignancy. Separate sections address the infectious complications of hematologic lymphoreticular malignancies (such as hairy cell leukemia, multiple myeloma, and Hodgkin's disease), the infectious complications of solid tumors (such as lung, breast, and liver cancer), and system specific infections in cancer patients. Other topics include infections associated with radiation therapy, catheter-related infections, parasitic diseases in cancer patients, HIV-related malignancies, prevention of infection, and immunization against infectious diseases.
