Summary
Over the past twenty-five years, the number of patients with compromised immune systems has grown astronomically. High-risk patients such as these require a unique set of healthcare solutions that take into consideration everything from the etiology and degree of immune suppression to the individual patient's nutritional status. This comprehensive volume examines a wide range of approaches and challenges to infectious disease diagnostics for immunocompromised patients
