Mycology

MYCOLOGY [Greek: mykes, fungus + logos, discourse]  Scientific study of infectious diseases caused by fungi in man and higher animals was initiated in the first half of the 19th century. However, the fungal disease, thrush, was described by Hippocrates (460–377 BC) and Madura foot was described over 3000 years ago in the Athara-Veda   Mycology as a branch of medicine was pioneered by David Gruby (1810–1898) of Paris, around 1842. Thereafter it was intensified by several workers including: Johan Lucas Schonlein(1839), M. J. Berkeley (1836), Tilbury Fox (1863), Charles Robin (1853), R.J.A. Sabouraud (1890), E. Bodin (1902), Castellini (1910), and others. It was recognized as specialty in America in the early 20th century with the appointment of the first medical mycologist, Chester Emmons.
