Overview

Over three previous editions, Clinical Tuberculosis has established itself as an indispensable guide to all aspects of tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment. This fully revised and updated fourth edition provides practical guidance to healthcare professionals involved in any aspect of patient management or disease control; chapters are included on epidemiology, pathology, immunology, disease presentation, diagnosis, treatment and management options.

The problem of TB associated with HIV infection is given special emphasis, as are the increasing problems of multi-drug resistant strains and environmentally opportunistic mycobacteria. Chapter authors have been hand-picked to represent the most up-to-date thinking in their particular subject areas, making Clinical Tuberculosis the essential reference work for the bookshelves of respiratory physicians, infectious disease specialists, public health workers and other individuals involved in the management and control of tuberculosis worldwide.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne L. O'Keefe, MD, MPH (Douglas County NE Health Department)
Description: This comprehensive reference is useful for workers who diagnose, treat, and work to control tuberculosis around the world.
Purpose: The editor succeeds in providing a concise, definitive update on methods and practice for tuberculosis control, in an affordable format that can be accessible for resource-poor countries and programs.
Audience: Tuberculosis workers of all types (healthcare providers to public health workers) will find this a good one-stop resource for information they will need to fulfill their roles in the treatment and control of the disease. The editors and contributors work in this field in positions of authority and expertise.
Features: The book covers pathology and immunology, clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment, management of treatment including directly observed therapy, public health issues such as prevention of activation of latent infection and transmission of disease, and methods of tuberculosis control in high- and low-prevalence settings. The chapter describing the WHO's "Global Plan to Stop TB, 2006-2015," while not essential, provides a very interesting paleohistory of the origins of tuberculosis disease in humans. A useful feature is the box at the end of each chapter that summarizes the key learning points the editors would like readers to understand.
Assessment: This fourth edition updates the previous edition of five years ago with essential information that will be valuable to tuberculosis workers. It also attempts stay up-to-date by covering current research that may end up in practice in the future. The title hints that the intended audience is providers of tuberculosis medical care, but public health workers and policy makers from the international to the local level in both high- and low-prevalence countries will find this book informative and useful.
