Evidence–Based Infectious Diseases, 2nd Edition, uses a unique case–led format to provide recommendations for optimal treatment of the individual patient. The approach is particularly appropriate for infectious disease management, where external circumstances are a major part of every case, and no one situation is typical. It is especially suitable for teaching how to put evidence–based medicine into clinical practice.

Updated and revised for its second edition, the book now offers new sections on:

  • hepatitis
  • the influenza pandemic
  • infections in critical care
  • long–term care in special populations
  • acquired infection in transplantation

This is an invaluable resource for all physicians and specialist staff working with in the wide field of infectious disease.
