This beautifully illustrated book introduces readers to the basic science of medical microbiology and relates it to clinical practice. Integrating concise text, over 270 full-color diagrams, and selected photomicrographs, the authors provide an understanding of bacterial infection and give the reader the necessary grounding to select the right antibiotics and follow logical diagnostic and management strategies.

Following introductory chapters on the nature, structure, and function of bacteria, the principles are then applied to each body system in turn, dealing with organisms, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and public health. There are also chapters on infection in modern society for immuno-suppressed patients, and on infection control emphasizing the importance of good hygiene in preventing hospital-acquired infection.

The book is valuable for medical students, trainee physicians and microbiologists, laboratory biomedical scientists, and nurses working in infection control.
