Description of Medical Microbiology

This introductory Medical Microbiology textbook has served medical students, trainees in the clinical practice of infection and non-clinical scientists throughout the world for nearly 90 years.  The scope is particularly important for The global; infection is international and capable of rapid dissemination.

For this reason, not just those organisms and conditions that tend to take center stage in countries with advanced health care provision. We are aware of and value the cosmopolitan nature of our readership.
