Summary note:
  • This third edition of Medical Microbiology provides a concise, up-to-date, and clinically relevant introduction to microbiology. This innovative text focuses on those microbes that cause disease in humans and follows a taxonomic approach. Special emphasis is placed on important, medically relevant information.
  • Each chapter of Medical Microbiology follows a consistent format in discussing all the medical diseases: etiology is covered first, followed by epidemiology, host defenses, identification, diagnosis, prevention, and control. Hundreds of color photographs and drawings, summary boxes, and tables help reinforce key points, ensuring that Medical Microbiology is focused, attractive, and easy-to-follow.
