Overview

This established reference is a comprehensive and synoptic account of tuberculosis, providing up-to-date information on all aspects of the disease. It gives practical guidance to health professionals who may be involved in any aspect of patient management or disease control, including fully referenced chapters on epidemiology, pathology, immunology, disease presentation, diagnosis, treatment and management options. Specific consideration is given to the problems of TB associated with HIV infection, and issues of control relating to low and high prevalence countries respectively. The ongoing issues surrounding the BCG vaccination and preventive therapy are also covered, as are the increasing problems of multi-drug resistant strains and environmental opportunist mycobacteria.

Clinical Tuberculosis remains an essential reference for respiratory physicians, infectious disease specialists, public health workers and other individuals involved in the management and control of tuberculosis worldwide.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
On the second edition:
'as an up-to-date, authoritative, comprehensive, and fully referenced account of tuberculosis, this book is unrivalled'
The Lancet

This third edition of Clinical Tuberculosis is a timely arrival...its scope is wide and the book's title hardly does it justice. It deserves a place in every medical library and on the desk of every specialist in tuberculosis.
Chronic Respiratory Disease

this book does a very good job of presenting up-to-date information and opinion on all the main aspects of clinical tuberculosis. In the main, this is done in a concise and readable manner. It is essential reading and a handy reference work for all health-care professionals interested in tuberculosis.
