What the General Practitioner Ought to Know about Human Actinomycosis focuses on infectious bacterial diseases caused by actinomyces species. This book discusses the tissue reaction to the actinomyces; microscopical appearance of the lesions; clinical pathology of actinomycosis; and cervico-facial actinomycosis. The orbital actinomycosis; diagnosis of visceral actinomycosis; ano-rectal actinomycosis; and prevention of actinomycosis are also elaborated. This text also describes the infection of actinomyces to certain parts of the body such as the tongue, stomach, intestines, colon, kidney, genital tract, liver, chest, bone with special reference to vertebral involvement, and skin. This publication is a good reference for medical practitioners and students intending to acquire knowledge of the diseases caused by actinomyces.
