Turn to Medical Microbiology, 8th Edition for a thorough, clinically relevant understanding of microbes and their diseases. This succinct, easy-to-use text presents the fundamentals of microbiology and immunology in a clearly written, engaging manner—effectively preparing you for your courses, exams, and beyond.

    • Coverage of basic principles, immunology, laboratory diagnosis, bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology help you master the essentials.

    • Review questions at the end of each chapter correlate basic science with clinical practice to help you understand the clinical relevance of the organisms examined.

    • Clinical cases illustrate the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases, reinforcing a clinical approach to learning.

    • Full-color clinical photographs, images, and illustrations help you visualize the clinical presentations of infections.

    • Summary tables and text boxes emphasizing essential concepts and learning issues optimize exam review.

    • Additional images, 200 self-assessment questions, NEW animations, and more.
    • Thoroughly updated chapters include the latest information on the human microbiome and probiotics/prebiotics; including a new chapter on Human Microbiome In Health and Disease

    • NEW chapter summaries introduce each microbe chapter, including trigger words and links to the relevant chapter text (on e-book version on Student Consult), providing a concise introduction or convenient review for each topic.

    • Full-color clinical photographs, images, and illustrations help you visualize the clinical presentations of infections.

    • Additional images, 200 self-assessment questions, NEW animations, and more.
