Overview

Medical Microbiology provides a balanced, up-to-date, clinically relevant introduction to microbiology. It focuses on the microbes that cause disease in humans, and includes important facts and explanations. Hundreds of color photographs and drawings, summary boxes, and tables reinforce the key points. A consistent chapter format is used to discuss the etiology, epidemiology, host defenses, identification, diagnosis, prevention, and control of all the microbial diseases. These factors combine to create a succinct, focused, attractive, and easy-to-follow textbook that is gaining in popularity with each edition.

Organized taxonomically, presenting organism groups and taxonomic subdivisions within each group Approximately 500 full-color illustrations and over 400 tables and summary boxes Chapters are small for easy conceptualization with a consistent format Case studies provide scenarios, followed by a series of questions

This book was written in a readable manner with the detail presented in figures or tables, the essential elements presented in boxes, the concepts depicted in excellent color figures and the material reviewed with a clinical case based question. Our objective in this book was to teach. Each section starts with a basic overview to introduce the essential concepts. The specific microbes are presented as the 'bug parade', each 'bug' presented in appropriate detail. This approach provides a logical format to learn the material. A summary chapter relates the microbes to diseases.
