Medical Microbiology & Infection at a Glance encapsulates the essential facts and principles of modern clinical medical microbiology, leading the reader along the diagnostic pathway, from the infecting agent through the clinical disease to diagnosis and patient management, whether in the hospital or in the community.
Presented in the familiar double-page spread style of the At a Glance series, clear sketches illustrate the pathogenesis of infectious disease and the underlying principles of management; while the text supplies further explanation and detail, for more in-depth study. A series of full color case studies are supplied for self-assessment.
This new edition to the At A Glance series is ideal for use as a study aid for all students of biomedical science and medicine. It also provides a review of the subject for professionals in other specialist areas, including infection control.
