The first of a range of four-colour textbooks for medical students, this book encompasses the clinical practice of infectious diseases as they occur in the hospital and community. It takes a problem-solving approach, which should appeal to those preparing for exams or working in the clinical setting, and is designed for use by senior medical students and junior doctors preparing for higher examinations. It is also a companion textbook for physicians, surgeons and public health doctors who are not specialists in infection, but often encounter infections as a problem in their own field of expertise. There are key points in marginal notes for definitions, practice points and emergencies. There is also a structured approach to each disease: microbiology, epidemiology, clinical features and diagnosis, and management strategies for prevention and control.
