Medical Microbiology takes a modern and clinically relevant approach to microbiology, discussing the organ systems in turn and addressing the diseases caused by invading microbes within each. The book has four main sections in which the first sections describe infectious diseases in terms of conflict between the host and the parasite. The third section is a full, factual, clinically-based account of infectious diseases with the necessary attention to core medical microbiology, while the fourth section is devoted to prevention and treatment, including a chapter on epidemiology.
Integrated case studies reinforce clinical relevance of the material Summary headings throughout each chapter support important concepts Key Facts Review box at the end of each chapter will enable students to better prepare for course exams Review questions encourage students to assess their knowledge Chapter introductions have been re-formatted to give them more prominence Improved appendix design makes information more accessible
