Summary

Medical microbiology is essential in the management of patients with infection. A good knowledge of micro-organisms, their classification, the diseases they cause, the way in which they harm the host organism and laboratory methods of isolation and identification is necessary for good practice. This book provides a new approach to medical microbiology by relating the laboratory bench methods of investigation to clinical practice; chapters on organisation, quality assurance and safety in the microbiology laboratory are included together with those describing the pathogenicity and clinical aspects of the main bacterial, fungal and parasitic organisms infecting humans. Information on the collection and examination of various specimens is also included; each chapter is well illustrated with full colour illustrations; and further reading is provided at the end of the book.
Essential reading for all microbiologists, particularly those reading for the MRCPath examination, Medical Microbiology Illustrated should also be of interest to medical laboratory scientific officers, infectious diseases physicians, consultants in communicable diseases control, medical students and those studying the laboratory aspects of medical microbiology.
