Sobre o livro
This is the twenty-forth edition of the book, covering the fields of clinical microbiology, immunology, parasitology, mycology, and virology. The purpose is "to provide a brief, accurate, and up-to-date presentation of those aspects of medical microbiology that are of particular significance in the fields of clinical infections and chemotherapy." These worthy objectives have been met by the authors. The book is designed for medical students and residents who want a brief description of the organisms and agents involved in clinical microbiology. This book aims to introduce basic bacteriology through all the fields of clinical microbiology, immunology, mycology, parasitology, and virology. The organisms are described briefly along with paragraphs on pathogenesis, a few diagnostic laboratory tests, clinical findings, treatment and epidemiology. Nice features include an updated list of microorganisms and viruses on the inside of the covers and new cases covering aspects of germ warfare and bioterrorism. Updates have been added, particularly in the areas of hepatitis viruses, AIDS virus, and bacterial virulence factors.
