Overview

No other text clarifies the link between microbiology and human disease states like Sherris Medical Microbiology

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This will continue to be a popular textbook, primarily due to the well-designed figures and pictures in all chapters. It is one of the better textbooks I have seen for teaching the basics of medical microbiology."—Doody's Review Service

For more than a quarter-of-a-century Sherris has been unmatched in its ability to help you understand the nature of microorganisms and their role in the maintenance of health or causation of disease. Through a dynamic, engaging approach, this classic text gives you a solid grasp of the significance of etiologic agents, the pathogenic processes, epidemiology, and the basis of therapy for infectious diseases.

The fifth edition has been completely revised to reflect this rapidly-moving field’s latest developments and includes a host of learning aids including clinical cases, USMLE-type questions, marginal notes, and extensive new full-color art.

Features

  • 66 chapters that simply and clearly describe the strains of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can bring about infectious diseases
  • Core sections on viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases open with new chapters detailing basic biology, pathogenesis, and antimicrobial agents and feature a consistent presentation covering Organism (structure, replication, genetics, etc.), Disease (epidemiology, pathogenesis, immunity), and Clinical Aspects (manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, prevention)
  • Explanations of host-parasite relationship, dynamics of infection, and host response
  • USMLE-style questions and a clinical case conclude each chapter on the major viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases
  • All tables, photographs, and illustrations are now in full color
  • Clinical Capsules cover the essence of the disease(s) caused by major pathogens
  • Marginal Notes highlight key points within a paragraph to facilitate review

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca T. Horvat, PhD, D (ABMM)(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: As in the past editions, this fifth edition of a popular microbiology textbook brings students into the world of microorganisms and the human host responses to these invaders. It is an enjoyable update of a favorite textbook.
Purpose: It is carefully designed as a comprehensive textbook for students being introduced to medical microbiology for the first time. The authors have been successful in accomplishing this primary goal.
Audience: This is a student-oriented textbook that can be used as the major source for class lectures. Many of the authors are veterans who have taught this material and bring their experience to the design of the book.
Features: An introduction to diseases caused by infectious agents and to the basics of the character of infectious agents begins the book. This is followed by several chapters that describe the immune reaction to these infectious agents, sterilization, control of infections with anti-infective drugs, and how they are detected in a diagnostic laboratory. These chapters set the stage for the rest of the book, which describes the various infectious agents that cause disease in humans. Starting with viruses and moving through to bacteria, fungi, and parasites, these chapters describe how the agents cause disease and how the infections are detected and treated. One of the remarkable characteristics of this book is the high quality of the abundant figures. Another nice touch is that several chapters begin with interesting quotes from individuals as diverse as Frank Zappa, Charles Dickens, and Lucretius.
Assessment: This will continue to be a popular textbook, primarily due to the well-designed figures and pictures in all chapters. It is one of the better textbooks I have seen for teaching the basics of medical microbiology.
