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.

ISBN: 1555812171
Release Date: 2003
Genre: Medical

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.
