Challenging Concepts in Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology details over 30 challenging cases from a wide area of infectious diseases, medical microbiology and virology and includes topics ranging from HIV and drug resistant Tuberculosis to recurrent typhoid and viral haemorhagic fever. This case-based learning book ideal for trainees and speciality registrars. Each case is supported by the commentary of a renowned expertin the field, allowing readers to improve their own management of these patients. All areas of clinical care are convered including medical management, infection control and public health. As the reader works through each case there are 'Clinical Tips', 'Learning Points' and 'Evidence Base' boxes to enhance the learning process along with the 'Expert Commentary', providing an inside track on how the experts approach challenging cases ranging.

An interactive text, Cases in Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, helps students better understand the clinical importance of the basic science concepts presented in medical microbiology or infectious disease courses. The cases are presented as "unknowns" and represent actual case presentations of patients the authors have encountered. Each case is accompanied by several questions to test knowledge in four broad areas including the organism's characteristics and laboratory diagnosis; pathogenesis and clinical characteristics of the infection; epidemiology; and prevention and, in some cases, drug resistance and treatment. This title is published by the American Society of Microbiology Press and distributed by Taylor and Francis in rest of world territories.

Fully reviewed and revised for its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology maintains its position as the must-have guide to all aspects of infectious diseases and microbiology. Reflecting the current approach to joint postgraduate training programmes, the handbook takes an integrated approach to both subjects. It covers the basic principles of bacteriology and virology, along with specific guidance on individual diseases and conditions, all in the accessible Oxford Handbook style. Now including new topics on important subjects such as microbiology specimen collection, commonly used media, molecular diagnostics, and antimicrobials in pregnancy, as well as incorporating new guidelines from WHO, NICE, and BASHH among others, this handbook ensures that the informaiton you need is accessible, clear, and easy-to-understand. Practical and comprehensive, this handbook includes coverage of National Frameworks and current legislation, together with information on topical issues such as bioterrorism and preventative medicine. Fully reviewed by specialist senior readers, and with useful links to up-to-date clinical information and online resources, this is an important addition to the Oxford Handbook Series.

Designed for associate-degree MLT/CLT programs and baccalaureate MT/CLS programs, this textbook presents the essentials of clinical microbiology. It provides balanced coverage of specific groups of microorganisms and the work-up of clinical specimens by organ system, and also discusses the role of the microbiology laboratory in regard to emerging infections, healthcare epidemiology, and bioterrorism. Clinical case studies and self-assessment questions show how to incorporate the information into everyday practice. More than 400 illustrations and visual information displays enhance the text. Essentials boxes, chapter outlines, key terms, summaries, and other study aids help students retain information. A bound-in CD-ROM includes additional review questions, case studies, and Web links.

Based on the popular trading card format, each deck contains 103 color–coded cards that are organized into five groups: gram–positive bacteria, gram–negative bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. The front of each card displays a unique and focused collection of microscopic and clinical images and the back of the card contains a standardized summary of six key features, including diseases caused, pathogenesis, immunity, epidemiology, diagnosis, and control. There′s also an outline of the human body with red markings that show at a glance where the organisms cause disease. Unlike textbook chapters, where authors emphasize different points, the information provided on MicrobeCards is standardized. This makes direct comparison between organisms easy. MicrobeCards also offer complete flexibility; the cards can be organized by the student to suit his or her specific needs. MicrobeCards are an excellent reference, allowing users to focus on the most relevant information.
