Overview

Provides a comprehensive examination of research on every genus in the family Enterobacteriaceae.
• Presents complete medical information on each genus, including taxonomy, epidemiology, infectious disease spectrum, identification, pathogenicity, and antimicrobial susceptibility.
• Offers unique information on procedures and protocols for identification of atypical or unusual variants of each species.
• Discusses the use of the genome sequence as a means of identification and classification, covers the reclassified genus Plesiomonas, and includes an appendix containing differential biochemical tables.
• Serves as an important source of information for microbiologists, lab directors, pathologists, and infectious disease specialists.

"...coverage includes types of infection, clinical syndromes associated with each agent, and laboratory identification... with detailed identification techniques, protocols for screening hard-to-identify groups, and many illustrations."

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca T. Horvat, PhD, D (ABMM)(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a second edition of a very comprehensive book about the species in the bacterial family Enterobacteriaceae. The book is organized by the different genus within this bacterial family. It contains comprehensive and valuable information about this ubiquitous group of bacteria.
Purpose: This is intended to be the primary reference source on the Enterobacteria. This family of bacteria is found in a number of host animals and insects as well as in the environment. The Enterobacteria have a long history of association with human disease and thus are commonly identified in a clinical laboratory. This reference is a reliable source for identifying clinical isolates in this family that are difficult to classify.
Audience: This book is a must have for all clinical microbiologists. It would also be useful for physicians, infectious disease specialists, pathologists, epidemiologists, infection control practitioners, and scientists. The authors bring a tremendous amount of expertise to this endeavor after many years of studying the Enterobacteria in the laboratory.
Features: This book covers each of the genera found in Enterobacteria family. Each chapter details the taxonomy and history of the genus followed by the epidemiology and clinical diseases associated with the species in the genus. An important component of each chapter is the great detail on laboratory identification and antimicrobial susceptibility. Especially useful are the differential biochemical tables found in the appendix. I have already found this information useful in the identification of bacteria that are unusual.
Assessment: I would highly recommend this book for all clinical microbiologists. With the rapid changes in technology, new bacteria in this family are being identified at an accelerated pace. This reference is up to date on the taxonomic groups, new names of the Enterobacteria and the reclassification of bacteria from other families into this group.

Booknews
Specialists from the Microbial Diseases Laboratory of the California Department of Health Services provide medical and public-health practitioners with a reference for diagnosing the various forms of infection by the most common and devastating family of bacteria. They arrange the practical summary of information by individual genera, with specific subheadings on topics of interest to medical staff. They include historical perspectives, consider the medical significance of the family, take two chapters each for the widespread Escherichia and Salmonella genera, and discuss miscellaneous genera that are associated with clinical specimens and those that are not associated with human disease. They generally limit references to 1980 and after to save space, figuring that earlier findings can be traced back from the later studies. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
