This book is divided into six sections: microbial biology, infection immunity, bacterial pathogens and associated diseases, viral pathogens and associate diseases, fungal pathogens and parasitic infections, diagnosis, treatment and control of infection. The major portion provides organism-based systematic coverage of microbiology. Each organism is considered under a standard set of headings: Description, Pathogenesis, Clinical features, Laboratory diagnosis, Treatment and Epidemiology. The section on immunology covers that part of the subject that is of direct relevance to the understanding of microbial infection.
