Synopses & Reviews
Dr. Pommerville's Guide to Infectious Diseases by Body System offers readers an excellent tool for learning about microbial diseases. Each of the fifteen body system units presents a brief introduction to the anatomical system and the bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic organisms infecting the system. Anatomical illustrations are captioned with the diseases' signs and symptoms. Each unit also provides the names and brief descriptions of each disease, and their causes and treatments. This book makes an excellent infectious disease primer and quick reference for any microbiology, anatomy and physiology, or allied health student. Pommervillea (TM)s Guide to Infectious Disease by Body System makes a great supplement for Pommervillea (TM)s Alcamoa (TM)s Fundamentals of Microbiology, 7/e (see page 6), Donnersberger and Lesak Scott's A Laboratory Textbook of Anatomy and Physiology: Cat Version, 8/e (see page 4), Clark's Anatomy and Physiology: Understanding the Human Body (see page 3), and Chiras' Human Biology, 5/e (see page 2).
