Using simple terminology and avoiding complex and confusing details, this text offers a complete, clinically oriented overview of basic medical microbiology. It covers information that is essential to understanding how micro-organisms cause disease, and provides a taxonomic approach to organism presentation, using a pathogen-oriented sequence that provides an understanding of the microbe in its setting regardless of the site of infection.
