Description

Emerging Infectious Diseases: Clinical Case Studies, Second Edition, Volume Three is an easy-to-use, extraordinarily informative text that belongs on every clinician’s shelf. The book elegantly synthesizes the clinical, microbiologic and epidemiologic information that is critical for patient diagnosis and for use in recognizing and mitigating outbreaks. The book presents cases with discussions that fill in the gaps on critical topics. Discussions on pathogenesis provide detailed microbiological information on each infection in a “teaching” style, thus making this resource interesting for a very broad audience.

  • Offers a balanced synthesis of basic and clinical sciences for each individual case, presenting clinical courses of cases in parallel with pathogenesis and detailed microbiological information
  • Describes the prevalence and incidence of global issues and current therapeutic approaches
  • Presents measures for infection control
  • Covers recently emerging infectious diseases based on real cases, providing comprehensive information, including different aspects of the infection
