A fully updated version of this popular, clinically oriented, user-friendly text on infectious disease, with even more helpful graphics, tables, algorithms and images. It is packed full of information on diagnosis, differential diagnosis and therapy. In addition to the traditional organization of organ-system and pathogen-related information, this text also includes clinically helpful sections on the susceptible host (with individual chapters, for example, on the diabetic, the elderly, the injection drug user and the neonate), infections related to travel, infections related to surgery and trauma, nosocomial infection and bioterrorism. Positioned between the available encyclopedic tomes and the smaller pocket guides, this is a convenient, comprehensive and highly practical reference for all those practicing in infectious diseases as well as internal or general medicine.
"The book covers a comprehensive list of infectious disease topics, which are discussed in short chapters that review the important clinical information in a few pages...
I would recommend this book to medical providers who are looking for a clinically-oriented book on infectious disease topics."
-- John Horne, MD (VA Medical Center Omaha) Doody's Review
"As a busy infectious diseases provider, I have the book in my desk during my outpatient clinic, and I have found it very useful in my daily practice. With its color images and great quality, this book will appeal to any reader. The tables and algorithms are clear and helpful and suggested readings end each chapter."
-- Carlos Figueroa Castro, MD (Boone Hospital Center) Doody's Review Previous edition
