Publisher Comments:

The new third edition of this best-selling text presents interesting and challenging cases that make the study of medical microbiology and infectious diseases enjoyable and enable students to develop a working knowledge of the variety of microorganisms that cause infections in humans.<P>Extensive introductory material explains in simple and concise language the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches that the clinical laboratory uses in assisting the physician in making infectious disease diagnoses. All of the approaches described are encountered in the cases that follow.<P>The 68 cases are presented as "unknowns" and represent actual case histories the authors have encountered at two university teaching hospitals. Each case is accompanied by several questions to test knowledge in four broad areas: 1) the etiologic agent's characteristics and laboratory diagnosis; 2) pathogenesis and clinical presentation; 3) epidemiology; and 4) prevention and, in some cases, drug resistance and treatment. Whenever possible, the authors have incorporated cellular microbiology into the case discussion.<P>Over 100 photographs allow students to familiarize themselves with the appearance of specific microorganisms in appropriate clinical settings. An extensive glossary explains the medical terminology to help students understand the language of medicine and make the cases accessible to all readers.<P>Cases in Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease is a valuable tool for students preparing for the National Board of Medical Examiners examination Parts 1 and 2 as well as during clinical infectious disease rotations. Advanced undergraduate students, other professional students, physicians intraining at both the resident and fellow stage, and faculty members at all levels will all find Cases a useful resource.<P>New to the Third Edition<P>-- Fifteen new cases representing contemporary trends in infectious diseases<P>-- Increased number of cases in transplant patien
