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 practising in infectious diseases as well as internal or general medicine.

Review of previous edition: '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.'
