Laboratory Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases
Essentials of Diagnostic Microbiology
by Paul G. Engelkirk

Laboratory Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases presents the essentials of clinical microbiology. It provides balanced coverage of specific groups of microorganisms and the work-up of clinical specimens by organ system, and also discusses the role of the microbiology laboratory in regard to emerging infections, healthcare epidemiology, and bioterrorism.

Clinical case studies and self-assessment questions show how to incorporate the information into everyday practice.

More than 400 illustrations and visual information displays enhance the text. Essentials boxes, chapter outlines, key terms, summaries, and other study aids.

A bound-in CD-ROM includes additional review questions, case studies, and Web links.
