A fully updated version of this popular, clinically oriented, user-friendly text on infectious disease, with even more helpful graphics, tables, algorithms and images. It is packed full of information on diagnosis, differential diagnosis and therapy. In addition to the traditional organization of organ-system and pathogen-related information, this text also includes clinically helpful sections on the susceptible host (with individual chapters, for example, on the diabetic, the elderly, the injection drug user and the neonate), infections related to travel, infections related to surgery and trauma, nosocomial infection and bioterrorism. Positioned between the available encyclopedic tomes and the smaller pocket guides, this is a convenient, comprehensive and highly practical reference for all those practicing in infectious diseases as well as internal or general medicine.
- • Tables and algorithms summarize and facilitate diagnostic and therapeutic choices
- • Chapters are written with a clinical orientation, by authorities in their field

"As a busy infectious diseases provider, I have the book in my desk during my outpatient clinic, and I have found it very useful in my daily practice. With its color images and great quality, this book will appeal to any reader. The tables and algorithms are clear and helpful and suggested readings end each chapter."
-- Carlos Figueroa Castro, MD (Boone Hospital Center) Doody's Review Previous edition
The authors assume readers are familiar with the subject. The target audience includes general internists and clinical infectious disease specialists, but the book might find a place on the bookshelf of pulmonologists, critical care medicine providers, and even public health professionals. This might become a favorite among infectious disease fellows. Most of the authors are known experts and most are affiliated with major universities in the United States.
