As more information about human infectious diseases emerges and as new questions arise, medical students, students and researchers in microbiology and immunology, and clinicians in every medical specialty need a clear and systematic summary of modern medical microbiology. Now, Wiley provides this much needed summary in a one-volume textbook, reference, and review covering the essentials of bacteriology, mycology, virology, and parasitology.
