"This is a must-have for neurologists, infectious disease specialists, and internists who care for patients with tuberculosis, especially in North America where the disease is not as common. Contrary to other textbooks that cover tropical diseases, which are cumbersome for bedside reference, this book is easy to refer to." --Doody
