A new and improved Atlas of Clinical Fungi by Webmaster News 2019-10-02 13:38:52
 

Highly resistant

Why are all species of Fusarium, Trichoderma, Lomentospora, Scedosporium and Scopulariopsis highly resistant to many currently used antifungals? They are members of two sister orders in the fungal Kingdom, the Hypocreales and Microascales, where intrinsic multi-resistance is prevalent. Intrinsic resistance is also common in the Mucorales, belonging to lower fungi. This is demonstrated in the Atlas of Clinical Fungi, which shows the medically relevant species in their phylogenetic coherence.

A new, completely revised, full-color version of the Atlas of Clinical Fungi, the world’s most famous handbook on fungi of medical and veterinary relevance, is now available online. The website’s database has several comfortable search options, using names, diseases or any other parameter as key words. Information can be found on http://www.clinicalfungi.org/. You can subscribe to the Atlas as of today.

Pre-order your print-version

The Atlas was first published as a book in 2000. And now, 20 years later, the book will be printed again, and in full color. It contains about 3000 pages in 3 volumes, with more than 600 photo plates in full color, chapters on diagnostic methods, antifungals, recommended therapy, phylogeny, and explanatory chapters on major fungal groups. With over 7000 references, the book follows the current literature until today, covering all 675 species that have been proven to be able to cause infection in humans and other vertebrates since the beginning of medical mycology in 1840. All fungal names used in medical publications can be found. The book is a must for every diagnostic laboratory.

Please note that for the book pre-ordering is highly recommended. Your early order will be rewarded with 10% reduction on the list price (to be determined). The stock of the book will be limited!

Subscribe to the online version

We herewith invite you to use the new web-version of the Atlas of Clinical Fungi.  The Atlas is still in a test-phase as a database for online search, but you will notice enormous improvements with full-color plates of most of the fungi, extended nomenclature, notes on pathogenicity with a wealth of recent references, and new chapters on antifungal susceptibility and recommended treatment. The Atlas will be further improved with molecular and phylogenetic data; updates are automatic and at no costs. Alternative name search helps you find all fungi ever been reported to cause human infection.
