Summary "This text fills a unique niche created by the growing list of medical schools that have adopted the new curricula of case-based, interactive learning. Encompassing twenty-four clinically important and frequently encountered infectious diseases, the text provides all the necessary background and the most up-to-date treatment of the microbes that cause diseases in humans. Each fully illustrated case study is introduced with a patient history, differential diagnosis, clinical clues, laboratory data, pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention. Presented as unknowns, the cases challenge readers to create a differential diagnosis just as they would in practice, including noninfectious causes that could present similar clinical findings.". "Richly illustrated with full-color photographs, line drawings, and tables, Medical Microbiology for the New Curriculum is geared toward first- and second-year medical students as well as faculty in microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, and infectious diseases. It also serves as a valuable resource for infectious disease fellows, pathology residents, and medical microbiologists."--BOOK JACKET.
