Doody's : "The first 58 chapters summarize the epidemiology, pathogenesis, manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention (if indicated) of the major bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic disease entities. The remaining 14 chapters cover infectious diseases. I like the way important points are emphasized in red script at the edges of each page. The book is very user-friendly with its icons of organism, disease, and clinical aspects. The book may be less detailed in the arena of infectious diseases." "This is a very useful resource for students of basic medical science to use to help in synthesizing material with clinical information. The basic knowledge of bacteria, viruses, etc., should stimulate the intellectual curiosity of students to apply their knowledge in the clinical arena. The updated edition is certainly justified."
The leading microbiology text! Thoroughly revised and updated, this book provides students with a solid grasp of etiologic agents, pathogenic processes, epidemiology, and the basis of major therapy. Includes complete discussions of the major bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic pathogens. Highlighted marginal notes and clinical applications are included throughout.
