200 high-yield cards with a clinical vignette on every disease-specific card

LANGE Flash Cards: Microbiology and Infectious Diseases are a quick, concise, and effective way to review the essential concepts of microbiology. These cards help you learn the medically important aspects of the subject and cover the basic and clinical aspects of bacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology, and infectious diseases.

One side of the card features a clinical vignette that is a mini-case study of the disease and the flip side presents the etiology and epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis, and treatment and prevention of the disorder.

Features

  • A super-effective portable learning tool
  • Covers major microbial diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kari A Simonsen, MD (University of Nebraska Medical Center)
Description: This extensive set of 200 flashcards, printed on lightweight 4 in. x 6 in. cardstock, delivers concise information on medical microbiology for quick study and test preparation. This is an update of the 2006 edition.
Purpose: The flashcards are designed to teach medical microbiology in a clinical context.
Audience: They are perfect for students required to understand basic characteristics of illnesses caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites and identify the clinical scenario typical of these infectious diseases. The authors are PhD microbiologists who aim to teach students of medical microbiology. The case scenarios make the cards most relevant for preparation for the USMLE Step 1, but the broadly applicable information is useful to any students of clinical microbiology.
Features: Each card contains a clinical vignette on one side and disease-specific data on the other, including etiology, clinical manifestations, pathogenesis, laboratory diagnosis, and treatment and prevention. Each section of cards also contains introductory cards that provide an overview of the major principles and concepts of that area. Black-and-white diagrams or useful algorithms are included in this introductory section. Information is organized in the same manner across the card deck to allow for readily comparing information across multiple cards.
Assessment: The flashcards offer a portable, quick study and review for students of medical microbiology. A comparison of the tables of contents reveals only a handful of additions and reclassifications since the first edition. The vignettes provide a high-yield framework for preparation for the USMLE Step 1, and the cards are a useful supplement to any medical microbiology course.
