The immuno-compromised patient is more susceptible to a broader range of infections than others, and infections of the respiratory tract are among the first and most common to be encountered.

In this book the authors review current options for management for a group of patients that present unique challenges to the clinician, and for whom the choices of effective therapy are often limited.
