Medically Important Fungi: A Guide to Identification.
The mean equivalent diameter of the air-borne particles was determined for several fungal species and was found to correspond closely to that of individual spores. Expand

It is estimated that about 5% of the general population could have fungal disease, and because of their relatively poor response to treatment, it is important to summarize the natural history and diagnosis of nail and foot infections. Expand
Tinea capitis in south‐east London—a new pattern of infection with public health implications
This investigation shows variable but significant levels of scalp ringworm in schools and that the dominant organisms are anthropophilic, providing support for the observation that there has been a shift in the pattern of tinea capitis in London and possibly, other U.K. centres. Expand
Clinical and immunologic significance of Aspergillus fumigatus in the sputum.
The purpose of this investigation is to assess the possible relationship of the Aspergillus species to various respiratory disorders. Expand
Observations on the epidemiology of Candida albicans
The carriage rates for C. albicans were found to vary for different groups of people but hospital patients appeared to have higher rates than the non-hospital population and the variable concentration of this fungus in the air and on the bedding suggested that its presence might be related to the presence of individual patients.

Environmental sampling for aspergilli during building construction on a hospital site.
During the course of extensive building activity at Guy's Hospital, London, air sampling was carried out weekly, for one year, to monitor the frequency of spores of Aspergillus spp. in both theExpand
Mycotic keratitis: Susceptibility to antiseptic agents
It is suggested that chlorhexidine may be a useful first line agent for fungal keratitis when other antifungals are not available and econazole was the most effective in vitro. Expand
Precipitins Against Extracts of Hay and Moulds in the Serum of Patients with Farmer's Lung, Aspergillosis, Asthma, and Sarcoidosis
The pulmonary disorder known asfarmer's or thresher's lung, duetotheinhalation ofthedust frommouldyhay, was first described inBritain by Campbell (1932), and subsequently by Fawcitt (1936, 1938a), Fuller (1953), Studdert (1950), Williams andMulhall (1956), and elsewhere by Dickie andRankin. Expand
