From the book reviews:"This book describes the prognosis, assessment of risk factors, and common infectious problems in patients with cancer, along with conditions that mimic infectious processes in patients undergoing chemotherapy. ... This book will be a useful resource for infectious disease fellows, oncology clinicians, or infectious disease practitioners taking care of patients in the bone marrow transplant unit. ... Overall, this is a good read." (Cezarina Mindru, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2012)
