About the Book

A fifth volume of infectious disease clinical pearls covering the common (influenza, staph) to the rare: rare bacteria in common locations, common bacteria in rare locations, and one-of-a-kind diagnostic dilemmas that in some cases are never fully resolved. Following Pasteur’s dictum that “the microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything,” Crislip introduces the reader to a panoply of host factors in infection, from HIV infection to intravenous drug use to unusual variations in the immune system or the anatomy. Full of wit and bad puns, Crislip’s essays are a fun way to study for Board exams or just learn more about our microbial overlords.
