Description

This clinically-oriented text focuses on the diagnostic protocols and treatment strategies with which physicians must be familiar when managing infectious disease patients. Informative algorithms, tables, and high-quality color photographs supplement many of the chapters in this conveniently-sized volume. The orientation of the volume is multi-faceted: in addition to the traditional organization of organ system and pathogen-related information, this text includes specific sections on the susceptible host (with individual chapters on the diabetic, the elderly, the injection drug user, and the neonate), travel-related infections, nosocomial infections, infections related to surgery and trauma, and bioterrorism. Informative algorithms, tables, and high-quality color photographs supplement many of the chapters. The convenient size of this book places it between the available encyclopedic tomes and the small pocket guides, making it a comprehensive but user-friendly and practical reference for the practising clinician.show more

Review quote

'The illustrations in all sections are excellent and a feature of the book is well laid out summary tables. ... I would recommend this book as a welcome addition to the clinical laboratory and to the medical/clinical microbiologist.' Microbiology Today 'As an infectious disease fellowship program director, I frequently query fellows in my program to determine which of the shorter infectious disease textbooks and/or Internet sites they prefer as a quick review source. ... a number of them have recommended this textbook as a source for brief reviews of topics. ... this textbook has many qualities that encourage me to recommend it as an infectious disease topic textbook.'
