Overview

"...reaches the high standards set by previous editions and should be a required purchase for all medical and biomedical students."
British Journal of Biomedical Science (review of 16th edition)

Now in full colour, this new edition of the bestselling Medical Microbiology covers Microbial biology; Infection and immunity; Bacterial pathogens and associated diseases; Viral pathogens and associated diseases; Fungal pathogens and parasitic infections; and Diagnosis, treatment and control of infection. The major portion gives an organism-based systematic coverage of microbiology. Each organism is considered under a standard set of headings: Description, Pathogenesis, Clinical features, Laboratory diagnosis, Treatment, and Epidemiology. The section on immunology covers that part of the subject that is of direct relevance to the understanding of microbial infection.
• Exactly what medical students need - an organism-based account of the subject, presented in a clinical context
• Makes learning easy - information is presented in a very systematic way
• Perfect for exam preparation - key point boxes highlight essential information
• The degree of detail makes it ideal for students with a level of commitment to microbiology

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Emma Khan, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This outstanding resource for medical students and residents training in the fields of pathology and infectious disease successfully brings together the main branches of microbiology — bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a user-friendly source of knowledge and to bridge the gap between texts that deal with microbiology in a traditional organism-based way and the more modern approaches that take microbial diseases as the starting point or attempt to view the subject from an immunological or epidemiological perspective. These are worthy objectives as medical students and residents need an integrated view of microbiology touching upon basic knowledge and practical scenarios encountered by a practicing physician. The book seamlessly accomplishes its goals with its easy reading style and its myriad colorful pictures, diagrams, tables, and charts.
Audience: Although apparently intended for medical students, this book is thorough enough to appeal to pathology and infectious disease residents who undergo extensive training in microbiology. The author has written other books, including pervious editions of this one and the popular Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, 5th edition (Oxford University Press, 2007).
Features: The book is straightforward, logically organized, and well referenced. Addition of web sites as sources in recommended reading shows the realization of the role of the Internet in the acquisition of knowledge by today's medical students and residents. The "key point" boxes highlight and summarize the chapters, impressing on readers the significant points without being lengthy and wordy. Ample photographs, diagrams, tables, and charts supplement the text. The electron microscopy pictures are especially helpful as they portray the details of the organisms that are involved in infectivity and pathogenesis. One of the most vital chapters is the one on immunization. With the advent of the HPV vaccine and the promise of more vaccines in the future, immunization is a concept that all medical students and physicians need to fully understand. Unfortunately, the chapter did not specifically discuss the HPV vaccine.
Assessment: This book, with its easy to read format, abundant visuals, and modest price, will be a favorite among medical students and residents.
From the Publisher
"Greenwood and Co seem to have included all information relevant to medical and other health care students which is readable, to the point and interesting. The text is also interspersed by numerous pictures, some of clinical examples other of bacterial micrographs...one other bonus of this book is that it doesn’t look as big as some of the other microbiology books so it’s a less daunting task to pick it up."
Medical Student, Cardiff University, UK
"A vibrant, digestible & fully comprehensive text! Medical Microbiology by Greenwood et al contains everything a medical student or microbiologist could desire; the chapters are arranged logically, the quantity of information is ample and is matched only by the quality. The book opens with an introduction suited to both the under & postgraduate. Chapters are arranged by kingdom, allowing any one pathogen to be located effortlessly, with its; morphology, clinical course, investigations, diagnosis, treatment, and much more laid out in conjunction. Online supplementation includes an extensive image & pharmaceutical library which is indispensible in modern study. There is more than enough information to satisfy any rhapsodic student! Although it should be devoured in separate sittings and the methods may differ slightly from current/future medical protocol, it is my first point of reference for any microbiological question. Having searched for the perfect microbiology text for some time, I have finally succeeded."
Medical Student, University of East Anglia, UK
