Featuring a uniquely visual two-page-spread design that is great for rapid reference or review, "In A Page Infectious Disease" provides a quick overview of the most commonly seen infectious diseases. Each disease is presented on a two-page spread in boxes with consistent headings: introduction; etiology, epidemiology, and risk factors; patient presentation; differential diagnosis; diagnostic evaluation; treatment and management; and prognosis and complications. Bulleted key points appear under each heading. An appendix briefly reviews antibiotics. This pocket-sized book is ideal for interns, medical students in internal medicine rotations, or USMLE review, as well as for physician assistant and nurse practitioner students.
