Written in a clear and easily digestible format, this text/i>
A core text for students, Lecture Notes: Medical Microbiology and Infection has been updated and revised in this fourth edition to cover all essential areas of medical microbiology and infection. The text's structure also lends itself to being a useful reference for junior doctors, nurses and GPs.
Written in a clear and easily digestible format, this text covers the basic science of pathogens and follows this with a chapter on Antimicrobial Agents and then a regionally-based approach to infection. With a new author team, new 2-colour design and inclusion of new pedagogical features, Lecture Notes: Medical Microbiology and Infection provides a thorough and accessible introduction to the topic area.
