Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Charles E. Edmiston, Jr., PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This is a concise review of both medical microbiology and immunology. All major microbial pathogens are covered in this text as well as the fundamental elements of immunology.
Purpose: The book has been targeted for second through fourth year medical students who are preparing to take the national licensing board examination. However, the material that is covered in this text is appropriate and valuable for all healthcare professionals who have an interest in infectious diseases. To enhance the value of this text for medical students, the authors have included a large section with practice board examination questions.
Audience: The audience for this text should encompass: (a) medical students, (b) medical technologists, (c) nursing students, (d) physician assistants, (e) pharmacy personnel, and any other healthcare professionals who have an interest or encounter infectious diseases in their practice.
Features: The reviews on each microbial pathogen are concise and timely. The material includes descriptions on pathogenesis and epidemiology, clinical findings, laboratory diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
Assessment: This is an excellent review or companion to a more comprehensive text book on medical microbiology and immunology.
