Fully reviewed and revised for its third edition, the Oxford Handbook of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology remains the invaluable guide to all aspects of infectious diseases and microbiology. Reflecting the current approach to joint postgraduate training programmes, the handbook takes an integrated approach to both subjects. It covers the basic principles of bacteriology and virology, along with specific guidance on individual diseases and conditions, all in the accessible Oxford Handbook style.

The chapters have been expanded to include new developments that reflect the fast-changing field of infectious diseases and their managements, including novel pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 and updated treatments for infections such as Hepatitis C. Diagnostic technologies such as whole-genome sequence based approaches are covered in greater detail, and the increased role of antimicrobial stewardship in the management of antiviral and antifungal prescribing has been substantially reviewed since the previous edition.

Practical and comprehensive, this handbook includes coverage of current legislation and guidelines, as well as substantial changes to species nomenclature. Fully reviewed by specialist senior clinicians, and with useful links to up-to-date clinical information and online resources, this title remains a cornerstone for all infection trainees, those working in laboratory settings, and candidates preparing for infection examinations such as CICE and FRCPath.

  • A comprehensive pocket-sized guide to all areas of infectious disease and microbiology
  • Covers the basic principles of bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology, plus detailed descriptions of diseases and conditions
  • Maps on to current guidelines to ensure up-to-date information for the latest evidence-based practice
  • Ideal for candidates sitting CICE and FRCPath examinations

New to this Edition:

  • All terminology has been updated to reflect changes to the nomenclature, with previous species names included for ease of reference
  • Features a greater focus on antimicrobial stewardship and infection control
  • Contains information on novel pathogens and outbreaks including SARS-CoV-2 and Monkeypox
  • Expanded sections on diagnostic techniques including whole-genome sequencing
