Fungi are much more than moldy creatures that decompose old food. In fact, infectious fungi are among the most common disease-causing agents in the world. Whether afflicted with ringworm or thrush, nearly 99 percent of all people will contract a fungus at least once. While most cases produce only annoying consequences, some can be quite deadly. Millions in the tropics die each year from this disease, and the problem is becoming more and more common in the United States. In Infectious Fungi , students will learn about the symptoms, ailments, and treatment options of a variety of infectious fungi, as well as the challenges now facing the treatment of this disease and the growing threat to public health.
