Atlas of Medical Mycology is meant to bridge the knowledge gap between the in-depth textbooks on medical mycology and the laboratory. The Atlas showcases photographs of culture morphology and photomicrographs of both common and uncommon fungi isolated at the Mycology Laboratory Division, RG Kar Medical College, Kolkata. The figures are accompanied by pertinent description to aid the untrained eye to appreciate and identify the relevant features. It also includes clinical photographs, and brief case descriptions of the cases from which the fungi were isolated, to help the students develop their clinical acumen.
Though the book is aimed at postgraduate students, it will also be helpful to practising microbiologists, dermatologists and pathologists. The book also aims to highlight the achievements possible in quality laboratory diagnostics even in a resource limited setting and embolden those who seek to do the same at their workplace.
