Reflecting the recent changes in postgraduate infection training, the Oxford Handbook of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology provides an integrated clincal infection overview. Practical and comprehensive, it builds on the first edition, covering the basics of antimicrobial therapy, bacteriology, virology, and parasitology, together with a detailed overview of clinical syndromes, diseases, and conditions. The authors are consultants in microbiology and infectious diseases in respected UK institutions and have worked together with trainees to produce a book that will be an essential companion for everyone caring for those with infection.
