Summary "Pulmonary Infection in the Immunocompromised Patient covers the management of this most challenging aspect of respiratory infection in depth. The authors, both well-known experts in the field, review current options for management for a group of patients that presents particular challenges to the clinician, and for whom the choices of effective therapy are often limited." "Pulmonary complications in immunocompromised patients require a multidisciplinary approach. Pulmonary Infection in the Immunocompromised Patient is therefore vital reading for specialist physicians in pulmonology and infectious diseases, cancer therapeutics, AIDS/HIV, and transplant medicine."--Jacket
