Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ed Dominquez, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This fourth edition of the popular Spiral Manual Series covers common infectious disease problems in an organ-based format. Individual sections address AIDS, antimicrobials, nosocomial infections, and selected laboratory tests.
Purpose: The authors present a contemporary, evidence-based, readable approach to these topics. They provide thorough bibliographies at the end of each chapter.
Audience: The clinical practitioner, house officer, and medical student are the targeted audience. This book could also be valuable to infectious disease subspecialists.
Features: Twenty sections, most based on symptom-complexes within an organ system, are included. Each section covers a variety of problems, ninety-one in all. Each bibliography has italicized comments by the authors. This aspect of the book makes it quite valuable for house officers and students who can follow-up with original references. Unfortunately, for many chapters the bibliography is longer than the text. While tables are commonly used, illustrations and algorithms are not.
Assessment: This book serves as a useful springboard to further reading about common infectious disease problems. A couple of glaring omissions include osteomyelitis (non-vertebral) and eye infections. Medical students and house officers will find it very helpful. Practitioners, however, will not find management algorithms or treatment guidelines so valuable in a busy practice.
