Long considered the definitive work in its field, this new edition presents all the principles and practices readers need for a solid grounding in all aspects of clinical microbiology—bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, and virology. Tests are presented according to the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (formerly NCCLS) format. This extensively revised edition includes practical guidelines for cost-effective, clinically relevant evaluation of clinical specimens including extent of workup and abbreviated identification schemes. New chapters cover the increasingly important areas of immunologic and molecular diagnosis. Clinical correlations link microorganisms to specific disease states. Over 600 color plates depict salient identification features of organisms.

Die Autoren haben beabsichtigt, diejenigen Gebiete der medizinischen Mikrobiologie kurz, exakt und in ihrem gegenwärtigen Stand darzustellen, die für die Infektionskrankheiten und ihre Chemotherapie von besonderer Bedeutung sind. Das Buch wendet sich in erster Linie an Medizinstudenten, außerdem an alle Ärzte in Krankenhaus und Praxis. Die Notwendigkeit für ein klares Verständnis der mlkrobiologischen Grundtatsachen ist in den letzten Jahren stärker geworden, da in Biochemie, Virologie und Chemotherapie so wie auf weiteren, die Medizin beeinflussenden Gebieten bedeutende Entwicklungen statt gefunden haben. Ein wesendicher Teil dieses Lehrbuches ist deswegen der Darstellung der Grundlagen gewidmet, wodurch sich das Buch auch für die Einführung des Studenten in den mikrobiologischen Kurs als brauchbar erweisen wird. Für die neue Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über Virus und Krebs neu geschrieben, und das Kapitel über antimikrobielle Chemotherapie wurde von Grund auf neu bearbeitet. Die Autoren freuen sich, bei dem Erscheinen der 7. amerikanischen Ausgabe von einer spanischen, deutschen, italienischen und griechischen Ausgabe, sowie von der Vorbereitung für eine serbokroatische Übersetzung berichten zu können. Die Autoren möchten nochmals allen danken, die ihnen bei der Bearbeitung dieser Auf lage behilflich waren, und die es ihnen durch ihre Kommentare und ihre Kritik ermöglicht haben, die in 2jährigen Abständen erscheinenden Revisionen dieses Buches auf dem neu esten Stand zu halten.

Seit einigen Jahren ziert eine winzige Nachbildung eines van Le- wenhoekschen Mikroskops eine Ecke meines Schreibtisches. An dem kaum acht Zentimeter hohen Gerät ist eine feststehende Linse so angebracht, dass man durch sie auf die Spitze einer Lanzett- del blickt, die durch einen feingängigen Schraubenmechanismus auf- und abbewegt werden kann. Ich kann mir nur vorstellen, wie verblüfft der Linsenschleifer aus Delft gewesen sein muss, als er vor fast genau 300 Jahren zum ersten Mal unter seinem gerade erfundenen Mikroskop – das wahrscheinlich noch primitiver war als mein Modell – seine „Animalculi“ (also „kleinen Tierchen“) in einem sorgfältig auf der Lanzette platzierten Tropfen Wassers aus der Regentonne beobachtete. Als Hobbymathematiker errechnete er mittels einer ausgefeilten Methode von Proportionsmessungen, mit der er die Größe eines Tierchens mit den Elementen in einem Sandkorn verglich, dass jeder Wassertropfen dieses Volumens 27 000 000 der winzigen Geschöpfe enthielt. Heutzutage verwenden Mikrobiologen hochentwickelte zus- mengesetzte Mikroskope und ausgefeilte Färbetechniken, um zi- lich leidenschaftslos Tausende von Bakterien mit einem einzigen Blick zu erfassen und zu bestimmen, wie groß sie sind, welche Form sie haben und wie sie sich zusammenlagern – alles zum Zweck einer vorläu? gen Identi? zierung. Wenn man hinter diese streng wiss- schaftliche Tätigkeit blickt, mag der Philosoph oder der Dichter d- über nachsinnen, was hinter diesen winzigen Kreaturen steckt, die in so vielen Formen vorkommen und sich zu einer solchen Vielfalt von Mustern zusammen? nden.

Diagnostic Pathology of Infectious Disease presents a comprehensive, organ-based approach to the effective and accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases. Dr. Richard L. Kradin covers the latest information on H1N1, as well as the use of immunohistochemical stains, PCR, Immunoperoxidase, and other molecular techniques for a current representation of the field. High-quality, full-color illustrations and differential diagnosis tables accompany each lesion so you can quickly identify and diagnose whatever you see. This reference is an invaluable tool for the accurate diagnosis of any infectious disease—from the common to the most challenging. Covers the latest techniques in immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics integrated throughout the text for comprehensive information on all investigative contexts relevant to ensuring diagnostic accuracy. Emphasizes the host responses critical in differential diagnosis to serve as a second opinion when non-infectious diagnoses mimic and confound the diagnosis of infection. Provides a complete visual guide to suspect lesions through superb, high-quality, full-color illustrations of key aspects of various diseases that facilitate the rapid identification of biopsy specimen. Presents contents organized by organ as opposed to pathogen to more effectively address diagnostic and management issues. Features tables that list differential diagnosis for each lesion for quick summaries of key points in problem areas. Highlights morphological characteristics and landmarks of tissue samples throughout the text for easy access to information necessary for signing out specimen. Focuses on clinicopathologic features and correlations so you can deal with the diagnostic problems you face every day.

Infektionskrankheiten sind ein stetig wichtiger werdender Bestandteil der Gastroenterologie, werden in der Fort- und Weiterbildung aber bislang noch häufig vernachlässigt. Die gastroenterologische Infektiologie erfährt derzeit einen rasanten Bedeutungszuwachs durch die weitreichenden Resistenzprobleme infolge des häufig ungezielten Einsatzes von Antibiotika (insbesondere MRGN), der zunehmenden Herausforderung einer alternden Bevölkerung mit steigender Komorbidität und Infektionsanfälligkeit sowie durch die besonderen Herausforderungen von migrationsassoziierten Infektionskrankheiten. Komplexe Interventionen in der Hochleistungsmedizin mit ihren spezifischen Infektionsrisiken stellen besondere Anforderungen an das Komplikationsmanagement und die Infektionsprävention. Nicht zuletzt dürfte auch die Mikrobiomforschung neue Ansätze für das Krankheitsverständnis und die Therapiemöglichkeiten von gastrointestinalen Infektionen generieren, wie der bereits als Behandlungsoption bei rezidivierender Clostridium difficile-Infektion etablierte fäkale Mikrobiomtransfer zeigt.
