Over three previous editions, Clinical Tuberculosis has established itself as an indispensable guide to all aspects of tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment. This fully revised and updated fourth edition provides practical guidance to healthcare professionals involved in any aspect of patient management or disease control; chapters are included on epidemiology, pathology, immunology, disease presentation, diagnosis, treatment and management options. The problem of TB associated with HIV infection is given special emphasis, as are the increasing problems of multi-drug resistant strains and environmentally opportunistic mycobacteria. Chapter authors have been hand-picked to represent the most up-to-date thinking in their particular subject areas, making Clinical Tuberculosis the essential reference work for the bookshelves of respiratory physicians, infectious disease specialists, public health workers and other individuals involved in the management and control of tuberculosis worldwide.
