The new Fourth Edition of Bacterial Infections of Humans reflects a decade of important discoveries, technological progress, and valuable new therapies as well as emerging and reemerging infections, resistant strains of bacteria, and threats of bioterrorism. It offers accessible, up-to-date information across the range of disease entitiesAs in previous editions, introductory chapters review general concepts of infection and epidemiology, and the chapters devoted to specific infections follow a consistent and highly useful format: historical background, methodology (diagnosis and pathology), biology, descriptive epidemiology, mechanism and routes of transmission, pathogenesis, host responses, methods of prevention and control, and areas for future research. All material has been thoroughly updated, and two chapters on molecular epidemiology and health care-acquired bacterial infections, are entirely new.
