Case Studies in Infectious Disease presents forty case studies featuring the most important human infectious diseases worldwide. Written for students of microbiology and medicine, this book describes the natural history of infection from point of entry of the pathogen through pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment. The use of real clinical cases serves to reinforce and extend the basic science.
This standardized approach provides the reader with a logical basis for understanding these diverse and medically important organisms, fully integrating microbiology and immunology throughout.
