This chapter provides a page-per-topic view for clinical syndromes classified by organ system (central nervous system, cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal and genitourinary, ocular, and cutaneous syndromes). Each page contains a tabulated list of organisms that may be responsible for causing pathology in this organ system, with a brief description of the likely nature of the clinical presentation. This aims to provide clinicians with a quick check-list of the potential aetiology underpinning any particular clinical presentation, as well as providing a summary of information presented on specific organisms in earlier chapters of the book.
