Fully reviewed and revised for its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology maintains its position as the must-have guide to all aspects of infectious diseases and microbiology. Reflecting the current approach to joint postgraduate training programmes, the
handbook takes an integrated approach to both subjects. It covers the basic principles of bacteriology and virology, along with specific guidance on individual diseases and conditions, all in the accessible Oxford Handbook style.

Now including new topics on important subjects such as microbiology specimen collection, commonly used media, molecular diagnostics, and antimicrobials in pregnancy, as well as incorporating new guidelines from WHO, NICE, and BASHH among others, this handbook ensures that the informaiton you need is
accessible, clear, and easy-to-understand.

Practical and comprehensive, this handbook includes coverage of National Frameworks and current legislation, together with information on topical issues such as bioterrorism and preventative medicine. Fully reviewed by specialist senior readers, and with useful links to up-to-date clinical
information and online resources, this is an important addition to the Oxford Handbook Series.

Review Quotes
Review from previous edition: \"The authors have achieved a Herculean task in including so much information in what is still a pocket-sized volume, albeit close to 900 pages, and in a format that is accessible and readable...In terms of value for money and information per cm3, this handbook
cannot be beaten.\"
