Synopses & Reviews
A fun, fast, portable way to review microbiology and infectious diseases for the boards and course exams
A case on every one of the 220 high-yield cards!
LANGE Flash Cards: Microbiology and Infectious Diseases are a quick, concise, and effective way to review the essential concepts of microbiology. These cards help you learn the medically important aspects of the subject and cover the basic and clinical aspects of bacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology, and infectious diseases.
One side of the card features a clinical vignette that is a mini-case study of the disease and the flip side presents the etiology and epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis, and treatment and prevention of the disorder.
- Excellent review tool for both the boards and microbiology course exams
- Format allows you to compare and contrast diseases
- Case presentation provided for each disease links basic science concepts to clinical application
