Medical Microbiology: A Guide to Microbial Infections: Pathogenesis, Immunity, Laboratory Diagnosis and Control. With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access

Front Cover
Elsevier Health Sciences, Jun 6, 2007 - Medical - 752 pages
"...reaches the high standards set by previous editions and should be a required purchase for all medical and biomedical students."
British Journal of Biomedical Science (review of 16th edition)

Now in full colour, this new edition of the bestselling Medical Microbiology covers Microbial biology; Infection and immunity; Bacterial pathogens and associated diseases; Viral pathogens and associated diseases; Fungal pathogens and parasitic infections; and Diagnosis, treatment and control of infection. The major portion gives an organism-based systematic coverage of microbiology. Each organism is considered under a standard set of headings: Description, Pathogenesis, Clinical features, Laboratory diagnosis, Treatment, and Epidemiology. The section on immunology covers that part of the subject that is of direct relevance to the understanding of microbial infection.Exactly what medical students need - an organism-based account of the subject, presented in a clinical context Makes learning easy - information is presented in a very systematic way Perfect for exam preparation - key point boxes highlight essential information The degree of detail makes it ideal for students with a level of commitment to microbiology
