The landmark clinical guide to the role microorganisms play in human health and illnesses -- now in full color for the first time!Includes 200 USMLE-style review questions along with cases & clinical correlationsLinking fundamental microbiology concepts with the diagnosis and treatment of clinical infections, this one-of-a-kind, portable text delivers an essential overview of the organisms and agents involved in clinical microbiology.In addition to concise descriptions of the organisms, you'll find vital perspectives on pathogenesis, diagnostic laboratory tests, clinical findings, treatment, and epidemiology. The book's purpose is to introduce basic clinical microbiology through the fields of bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology giving you a far-reaching, yet accessible review of the discipline that you can't find anywhere else. Supporting this acclaimed coverage are more than 120 full-color illustrations and tables, each designed to clarify and drive home important chapter concepts.Valuable learning aids include 200 USMLE-style review questions, tables, key points, boxed case studies, and chapter objectives and summaries.Content that spans the entire field: The science of microbiology, Cell structure, Classification of bacteria, The growth and survival and death of microorganisms, Cultivation of microorganisms, Microbial metabolism, Microbial genetics, Immunology, Pathogenesis of bacterial infection, Antimicrobial chemotherapy, Normal microbial flora of the human body Spore-forming gram-positive bacilli: bacillus & clostridium species, Non-spore-forming gram-positive bacilli, corynebacterium, propionibacterium, listeria, erysipelothrix, actinomycetes,The staphylococci, The streptococci, Enteric gram-negative rods (enterobacteriaceae), Pseudomonads, acinetobacters, uncommon gram-negative bacteria, Vibrios, campylobacters, helicobacter, Haemophilus, bordetella, brucella, francisella, Yersinia & pasteurella, The neisseriae, Infections caused by anaerobic bacteria, Legionellae, bartonella, unusual bacterial pathogens, Mycobacteria, Spirochetes & other spiral microorganisms, Mycoplasmas & cell wall-defective bacteria, Rickettsia & ehrlichia, Chlamydiae, General properties of viruses, Pathogenesis & control of viral diseases, Parvoviruses, Adenoviruses, Herpesviruses, Poxviruses, Hepatitis viruses, Picornaviruses (enterovirus & rhinovirus groups), Reoviruses, rotaviruses, & caliciviruses, Arthropod-borne & rodent-borne viral diseases, Orthomyxoviruses (influenza viruses), Paramyxoviruses & rubella virus, Coronaviruses, Rabies, slow virus infections, prion diseases, Human cancer viruses, AIDS & lentiviruses, Medical mycology, Medical parasitology, Principles of diagnostic medical microbiology
