The Practical Guide to Medical and Veterinary Mycology by Vanbreuseghem et al is an excellent contribution to these fields and to dermatology in general. It is not only a practical guide, but can also be considered an atlas because of its well-done illustrations.
The book is divided into three sections. The first gives a general review of mycosis and pseudomycosis, the second is a brief and very didactic summary of all agents causing mycosis or pseudomycosis, and the third describes the techniques and culture media the authors found most useful in detecting and diagnosing mycologic diseases. This book is a must for every medical library, for the dermatologist, mycologist, pathologist, veterinarian, and biologist, for any physician interested in mycology, and for medical students and general practitioners. I hope this book will be translated into other languages, since it deserves wider distribution.
