Incidence of invasive fungal sinusitis has been increasing over the years. The understanding of its pathophysiology has improved with newer serological tests and diagnostic methods helping in earlier diagnosis and reducing patient morbidity. It was believed earlier that invasive fungal sinusitis is seen only in immune compromised patients but clinical reports suggest otherwise. More anti-fungal drugs are being added to improve incidence of patient survival. This book aims to compile all practical information about invasive fungal sinusitis into a single volume. Therefore, busy clinicians would not have to perform exhaustive literature studies to diagnose invasive fungal sinusitis. The book aims to provide an overview of diseases which could be mistaken for invasive fungal sinusitis and discuss how the management is different. Book sections consist of clinical, microbiological, serological, pathological, radiological and pharmacological features of the disease and its management. Each section is important in today’s context as it dynamically alters the management of the patient. Early clinical suspicion and rapid microbiological, pathological and radiological diagnosis with aggressive treatment with surgical debridement and medical therapy leads to favorable outcomes.

Rhinosinusitis is one of the most common health care complaints, with many millions of cases managed annually by a variety of practitioners, from family care physicians and pediatricians to allergists, pulmonologists, and otolaryngologists. Rhinosinusitis: A Guide for Diagnosis and Management provides a comprehensive, practical guide to treating this widespread condition. Medical, surgical, and pharmacological management of both acute and chronic forms are discussed by experts with a wealth of clinical experience. Pediatric considerations and the role of allergies, asthma, and systemic diseases such as cystic fibrosis are discussed. A special chapter is devoted to alternative medicine in recognition of its increasing role in health care management. Diagnostic imaging techniques such as MRI and CT are discussed in detail. Finally, adjunctive surgical therapies are reviewed. Written for both primary care physicians and specialists, this guide will serve as an invaluable quick reference.
Invasive forms of fungal sinusitis principally stem from the saprophytic (obtaining
nutrients from dead or decaying matter) Zygomycetes class of fungi, which is
characterized by rapidly growing and reproducing species that are coenocytic (

BRYAN: INFECTIOUS DISEASES IN PRIMARY CARE covers disorders that primary care providers, family physicians and internists see on a regular basis. The clear organization starts with an overview of Infectious Diseases, followed by special issues in Pediatrics and Obstetrics, infectious disease emergencies, common problems, and also addresses specific pathogens, immunization, and antimicrobial therapy. This handy book guides the reader to recognize life threatening emergencies, to identify and treat all of the common infectious diseases that are prevalent today, and to follow a cost-effective approach to the common, high volume infectious problems. Underscores the practical aspects of infectious disease management in primary care. Identifies pitfalls in infectious disease emergencies in primary care that might lead to errors in care resulting in death, disability, or litigation. Emphasizes special problems applicable to primary care that are not usually covered in other textbooks, including infection control in the medical office, early recognition of bioterrorism, psychiatric problems presenting as infectious diseases, and more. Provides detailed coverage of infectious diseases unique to special populations, such as pediatrics, OB/GYN practice, and the elderly. Includes a comprehensive chapter on outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT). Provides fact sheet handouts for patients on the wise use of antibiotics, as well as buddy check sheets for patients with probable self-limited viral syndromes that could prove to be the first symptoms of a more serious disease. Offers separate chapters on the practical aspects of antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antituberculous drugs that correlate pharmacology and clinical indications. Contains numerous illustrations that clarify important aspects of differential diagnosis for fever and rash that primary care clinicians should recognize, including unusual rashes that indicate serious conditions. Highlights the most relevant information essential to practice with concise bulleted points and a uniform, easy-to-read style.

Chronic rhinosinusitis is a widely prevalent condition globally as well as in India. The chronicity of the condition and its multifactorial origin makes the detection of the underlying mechanism of the disease difficult to detect and renders the management challenging. This clinical update handbook put together by the eminent exponents of otolaryngology in India aims to simplify this elusive condition for the benefit of all practitioners involved in the management of this disease. The first chapter highlights socio-economic burden and the impact of this disease on the health related quality of life. The second chapter describes the underlying mechanisms involved in development of the disease. The third chapter showcases the various diagnostic modalities used to detect the disease, differentiate it from other similar conditions and assess its severity. The fourth chapter gives a very succinent overview of the various management modalities. The fifth chapter encapsulates the medical treatment and the sixth offers a lucid description of the latest surgical techniques for this disease. The seventh chapter deals with the other associated conditions that can confuse, complicate or impact the management of the disease as well as affect its prognosis. The eighth chapter describes fungal rhinosinusitis, which is of special importance because of its high prevalence in India.
