Overview

The reorganized and updated Pocket Guide to Clinical Microbiology, Third Edition, continues to present valuable quick-reference information to the clinical microbiology community in a small package. Easily portable, this new guide retains the format of the previous two editions--condensed information on detection and identification of clinically important microbes.

The new edition introduces a second author, specifically on the mycology and mycobacteriology sections, and reflects changes in taxonomy and the emergence of new pathogens and diseases. Reorganization efforts yield the integration of information into separate diagnostic sections, covering bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Another added feature is the increased use of summary tables, which results in a user-friendly Pocket Guide. The third edition is specifically organized to complement the Manual of Clinical Microbiology, 8th Edition.

Beyond its utility as a handy laboratory resource, the Pocket Guide to Clinical Microbiology, 3rd Edition, is also a practical tool for teaching medical technologists, pathology residents, and infectious disease fellows and offers a critical starting point for further research on topics presented.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This guide offers immediate access to essential information used in the laboratory. It is organized to follow the lab process:from differential diagnosis to specimen collection, transport, and processing and then to identification, susceptibility testing, immunodiagnostic testing, and finally reportable disease. Each major group of microbes:bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites:is discussed in individual sections.
