Infectious Diseases: 2-Volume Set / Edition 2

A clinical focus, reader-friendly format, and international scope make this landmark, two-volume reference unique among encyclopedic infectious disease resources. More than 300 worldwide experts cover all aspects of the investigation, diagnosis, and clinical management of every infectious condition. Abundant "Practice Points" convey valuable clinical pearls from the authors. The comprehensively updated 2nd Edition features an even more geographically diverse set of contributors than its predecessor, as well as brand-new information on nosocomial infections, HIV/AIDS, and many other timely topics.

• Emphasizes clinical diagnosis and management rather than basic science or animal research.
• Uses a consistent chapter organization and colorful page layouts to make information easy to find.
• Delivers almost 1,200 clinical and microbiological photographs and line illustrations in full color and more than 200 radiographs, MRIs and CTs, demonstrating the presentation of clinical conditions and providing exceptional visual guidance throughout.
• More versatile—A bonus CD-ROM that delivers all of the 2-volume set's illustrations.

• Contains expanded and updated coverage of nosocomial infections and hospital infection control/antibiotic policies
• HIV/AIDS· nocardia infections · fungal infections, including new anti-fungal drug therapies currently under development · Prion diseases · multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis · evaluation of the patient with suspected immunodeficiency · and much more.
• Features an even more international editorship and authorship than before, equipping readers with global "best practices" for the full range of infectious diseases.
• Offers a completely reorganized section on Clinical Microbiology that presents material in a more succinct, practical manner.
• Presents many new "Practice Points" demonstrating how to diagnose and treat complicated problems encountered in practice.
