The book describes the historical background of this important work this book reviews the history of yeast research, beginning with fermentation research at the end of the 18th century it traces our growing understanding of yeasts and their role in the evolution of microbiology, biochemistry, cytology, and genetics, and it. Unfortunately, results from the routine laboratory studies are often nonspecific and not very helpful clinicians are required to act definitively and early based on a high index of suspicion in the past, many patients with life-threatening candidiasis died without receiving antifungal therapy systemic.
