    • Clearly explains the rationale of opting for one particular treatment or length of course over another in order to arrange appropriate management and follow-up.

    • Provides focused ID decision support to questions such as:

      • What diagnostic test should I order?

      • What is the correct antibiotic for this patient/geographical region?

      • Are IV or oral antibiotics most appropriate?

      • How long should the antibiotic course be and when should it be de-escalated?

      • What special considerations should be taken in immunocompromised patients?

      • How often should complex infections be followed up?

    • Uses a succinct, easy-to-read writing style, following a consistent format: Important characteristics/epidemiology; Clinical related data; Rash characteristics; Ancillary diagnostic studies; Treatment; and Other.

    • Provides visual and quick-reference support with dozens of figures and tables throughout the text.

    • Contains invaluable guidance to help non-specialists provide the best care for patients, stem antibiotic misuse and resistance, avoid adverse drug events, and avoid unnecessary costs.
