This last section of the book, presents a list of viruses and information on each virus. This catalog serves as a “quick reference,” a starting place to gain an understanding of the significance of the recovery of various microbes from human clinical specimens. This dictionary will help increase the understanding of microbial pathogens by practicing clinicians, house officers, students, epidemiologists, infection control practitioners, and other allied health professionals.
