The intent of this book is to provide a practical approach to the recognition and therapy of selected outpatient problems faced by the internist, family practi- tioner, house officer, physician's assistant, and nurse. The topics selected were based on problems often encountered by clinicians in the outpatient setting, as well as by the interests of the authors. No attempt was made to write an all- encompassing textbook of infectious disease. We want to thank Dr. John Czachor, infectious disease fellow, Saint Vin- cent Hospital, for his contributions to two chapters: mononucleosis and mono- nucleosislike syndromes and selective laboratory studies. We want to thank Suzanne Hedstrom and Sharon Budzyna for typing and preparing the manuscript. Finally, we would like to give special recognition to our wives, Brenda, Roberta, and Bonnie, for their support during the preparation of this book. Richard A. Gleckman Nelson M. Gantz Richard B.
