Book Description :
A comprehensive textbook on tuberculosis that covers all aspects of the disease: epidemiology, microbiology, diagnosis, treatment, control and prevention. The main part of the book comprises very detailed and richly illustrated clinical chapters. The copious images are the advantage of this book. Chapters on new methods and treatments and on animal tuberculosis are included. The material is based on a wealth of experience in tuberculosis as seen in endemic countries such as Saudi Arabia that enjoy free access to advanced investigative and therapeutic facilities. This coexistence of endemicity of the disease and state-of-the-art facilities is rare in poor and developing countries or in rich and developed nations. This multidisciplinary volume is ideal for all clinicians, laboratory and research workers, epidemiologists, university teachers and students, health care planners and international organizations involved in world health and infectious disease.
