Textbook - Atlas of intestinal infections in AIDS

di Dionisio  • 2003  • dettagli prodotto


This book represents an international collaborative work focused on the current challenges of AIDS-related intestinal infections in the worldwide scenario. The unique problems of developing countries, the epidemiological and immunological aspects, the risks for immunodeficient travellers and the reservoirs and ways of transmission from animal to man are all equally considered, as are the diagnostic advances and the changing patterns of prophylaxis and treatment. Moreover, the etiological and clinical aspects and the histologic and electron microscopic features of biopsy samples are reported. Furthermore, notes on intestinal parasitoses in the past centuries with emphasis on disadvantaged people, and worldwide trends and perspectives are also included as a link between the past and the future. This volume is expected to fill a gap in the medical literature, provide the latest information on therapeutic advances, provide an exhaustive series of light and electron microscopy micrographs and illustrations, contribute to the educational programs in developing countries, and gain international approval as a reference book for problems arising in clinical and laboratory practice, and as a text book for medical and graduate students.Table of contents INTESTINAL PARASITOSES IN THE PAST CENTURIES WITH EMPHASIS TO SOCIALLY DISADVANTAGED PEOPLE: AN HISTORICAL LINK?- NATURAL HISTORY OF HIV INFECTION.- IMMUNOPATHOGENESIS OF AIDS.- ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE OF THE HIV-RELATED IMPAIRMENT OF MUCOSAL IMMUNITY.- EFFECT OF HIV INFECTION ON GASTROINTESTINAL FUNCTION.- FROM ANIMAL TO MAN (RESERVOIRS AND WAYS OF TRANSMISSION): 1) CRYPTOSPORIDIOSIS, MICROSPORIDIOSIS, ISOSPORIASIS, CYCLOSPORIASIS, LEISHMANIASIS, PNEUMOCYSTOSIS, TOXOPLASMOSIS. 2) MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS, M.
