Summary

This innovative, full-color text offers balanced coverage of the most up-to-date concepts in microbiology. The comprehensive, concise approach gives appropriate weight and emphasis to bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology -- in an easy-to-follow, user-friendly format. It focuses on essential, clinically relevant information, with a level of coverage that dispenses with unnecessary detail and synthesizes key concepts. In addition, a separate section on Immunology, by noted expert Ken Rosenthal, is comprehensive enough to serve as a text for medical school immunology courses. The new 4"th" edition of Medical Microbiology continues to offer the excellent, comprehensive coverage found in previous editions, now updated to include recent advances and the most medically important information.
