Overview

Presents 68 interesting, challenging cases that make the study of medical microbiology and infectious diseases enjoyable.
• Enables students to develop a working knowledge of the variety of microorganisms that cause infections in humans.
• Explains the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches that the clinical laboratory uses in assisting the physician in making infectious disease diagnoses.
• Includes questions to test knowledge in four broad areas: 1) the etiologic agent’s characteristics and laboratory diagnosis; 2) pathogenesis and clinical presentation; 3) epidemiology; and 4) prevention and, in some cases, drug resistance and treatment.
• Serves as a valuable tool for students preparing for the National Board of Medical Examiners examination Parts 1 and 2 as well as during clinical infectious disease rotations.
