Overview

Infections are a major cause of mortality in the elderly, and because the geriatric population is the fastest growing group in the United States, infections in the elderly are one of the most frequently encountered medical problems facing many physicians. This new issue Guest Edited by Kevin High highlights the basic principles, clinical syndromes, and prevention of infection in older adults. The issue begins with a background in topics such as Host Resistance and Immune Responses and Infection Control Issues. It also studies the important syndromes, such as Pneumonia, HIV Infection, Urinary Tract Infection, and Sepsis. The issue also includes important information on infection prevention, such as Immunization. As the percent of our population over 65 increases, it is becoming more and more important to understand and control infectious diseases in the elderly. This issue serves as a comprehensive and up-to-date tool for any clinician dealing with the geriatric population.
