The Oxford Textbook of Medicine: Infection is selected from the infection section of the renowned Oxford Textbook of Medicine, Fifth Edition. The book is an authoritative resource on infectious diseases. Comprehensive in its coverage and beautifully illustrated in full colour, it is an essential guide to the present-day management and prevention of a wide variety of infectious diseases. Covering diseases that are both familiar and tropical as well as those that continue to emerge, medical professionals will find it immensely valuable when diagnosing and preventing infection in their day-to-day practice. In 121 chapters, experts in infectious diseases from across the world review the essentials of current infectious disease practice and provide a wealth of practical advice that medical professionals can use in clinical situations. In addition, background information on epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathophysiology encourages a fuller understanding of conditions, and over 250 full colour images help with diagnosis when treating patients. A commanding discussion of infectious diseases from both Western and tropical countries, the Oxford Textbook of Medicine: Infection provides detailed information on a extensive range of viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and helminths. Vast in scope and truly global in reach, chapters span a variety of topics including, pathogenic microorganisms and the host, the patient with suspected infection, travel and expedition medicine, and non-venomous arthropods. They reflect the globalization of disease that has resulted from the unprecedented increase in international travel and immigration, as well as natural/man-made disasters that demand massive international aid efforts. This up-to-date and essential reference tool, supports all medical professionals in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. It will be of particular value to clinicians working in, or seeing patients from the developing world, due to the wide range of pathogens discussed. It also supports those taking diploma courses in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and HIV medicine. No infectious disease specialist or trainee should be without a copy of this definitive resource.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is fantastic. It is an incredibly comprehensive but easy to read resource that will be useful to ID clinicians and microbiologists, both Consultants and trainees alike. In my opinion it is a must buy for an Infectious Disease / Microbiology department. The book strikes a very nice balance between the level of detail provided and the succinctness of the text meaning that it can be used both as a reference book during day to day work and as a resource for simply reading to increase one's knowledge. The layout is also really easy to follow and the illustrations brighten up the book as well as enlightening the text. I would highly recommend it to trainees and Consultants in infectious diseases and microbiology and to anybody who needs an excellent, comprehensive but easy and enjoyable to read reference book on infectious diseases. * Brendan Healy, Consultant in Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK *
The new Oxford Textbook of Medicine: Infection does an excellent job of presenting important infectious diseases. The chapters are comprehensive including organism descriptions, epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment. Entries are up to date and include recent developments in treatment and scientific research. * Laurence Buxbaum, Director, Laboratory of Parasitology, VA Medical Center *
It is not only an excellent reference for medical trainees or internal medicine physicians, it also includes insightful commentaries on various humanistic issues related to the practice of medicine.........the 800-plus page Infection section is one of the highlights. Each section is clearly laid out, with an Essentials box at the beginning of each topic. From the review of The Oxford Textbook of Medicine, Fifth Edition * JAMA, December 2011 *
This book provides comprehensive coverage of infectious diseases that rivals any textbook of medicine. In addition, it includes unique sections on the foundations, achievements, and limitations of modern medicine and global patterns of disease. Reaching out to a broad constituency of readers, it provides reliable and up-to-date information to guide both trainees and clinicians in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. * Doody's Notes, April 2013 *
The book is fun to read and easy to find your way around. It's detailed and concise enough that it works well both as a reference book, and for those who want to learn more about different infections. The 250+ color photos have a high quality and are helpful in the diagnosis of patients. Tables and posters further contribute to increased understanding. The chapters have referrals to key books and publications... I highly recommend this wonderful book. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, May 2013 *
