An easy-to-understand, well-illustrated introduction to the clinically-important aspects of microbiology! NOW in full color! A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011! 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This book provides a comprehensive overview of medical microbiology in a well organized and practical format. The new version includes color photographs and revisions to reflect advances in knowledge and molecular diagnostics. These updates are essential in such a rapidly progressing field and will ensure this book continues to be a mainstay in teaching medical microbiology."--Doody's Review Service Linking fundamental principles with the diagnosis and treatment of microbial infections, this classic text delivers an essential overview of the roles microorganisms play in human health and illness. In addition to the brief descriptions of the organisms, you'll find vital perspectives on pathogenesis, diagnostic laboratory tests, clinical findings, treatment, and epidemiology. The book introduces you to basic clinical microbiology through the fields of bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology, giving you a far-reaching yet student-friendly review of the discipline.
All chapters have been extensively revised to reflect the tremendous expansion of medical knowledge afforded by molecular mechanisms, advances in our understanding of microbial pathogenesis, and the discovery of unusual pathogens. Features: NEW full-color presentation 500+ USMLE-style review questions 300+ informative tables and illustrations, each designed to clarify and reinforce important chapter concepts Coverage that reflects the latest techniques in laboratory and diagnostic technologies Visit www.LangeTextbooks.com to access valuable resources and study aids.
