The purpose of this book is defined by its author as that of "familiarizing students and physicians with the terminology of mycology, with the more common diseases produced by fungi, and with the laboratory procedures employed in diagnosis of these."
The book (exclusive of pictures) contains about one hundred pages of text and is divided into nine chapters. The first two are devoted to the discussion of the origin and general morphology of fungi, their physiology, classification and relation to disease and the methods of diagnosis of fungous infections. The following five chapters contain the description of important pathogenic fungi causing superficial and deep mycoses and also of some of the usual nonpathogenic contaminants. The trichophytin test is discussed in the eighth chapter and the action of sulfanilamide and its derivatives on fungi in the last, ninth, chapter. The book ends with a glossary
