Microbiology in Your Pocket by Melphine HarriottMicrobiology in Your Pocket: Quick Pathogen Review by Melphine Harriott is a concise guide to common and rare bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites that begins with pathogens that infect the nervous system and ends with pathogens infecting multiple organs. The presentation of material by organ system facilitates easy organization and provides versatility of use. Each card presents similar information with variations due to inherent pathogen differences. On the front is an introduction to each pathogen with clinical vignettes and images. The back provides the taxonomy or morphology, infections, pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention, treatment options, and an explanation. Key Features More than 230 graphics including full-color clinical images, pathogen photomicrographs, cell stains, biochemical tests, and diagrams Six color-coded pathogen types further facilitate quick acquisition of knowledge Online content via Winking Skull.com provides navigation by organ system or pathogen type Promotes long-term retention of complex material Animations further enhance learning This is an essential guide for medical students preparing for the USMLE®. It is also an ideal choice for graduate-level students in health science and dentistry looking for a user-friendly microbiology review.

Cases and Concepts: Basic Science Review. Step 1 by Aaron B. CaugheyCases & Concepts Step 1: Basic Science Review helps medical students prepare for USMLE Step 1 by studying basic science topics combined with clinical data, learning both the "why" of a principle and how it is seen in practice. Working through 116 clinical cases in microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, biochemistry, genetics, embryology, behavioral science, neuroscience, and epidemiology, the reader gains experience analyzing cases, learns classic presentations of common diseases and syndromes, and integrates basic science concepts with clinical applications. Cases are followed by USMLE-style questions with answers and rationales. Thumbnail and Key Concept boxes highlight key facts. A companion website offers fully searchable text online.

Case Studies in Microbiology: A Personal Approach by J Edwards; Rodney P. Anderson; Linda YoungThis first edition text developed and evolved to meet three pedagogical goals we deemed essential for those studying allied health and are pre-professional. The use of microbiology case studies were modified to maintain their value as tools that result in critical thinking and knowledge retention while providing a more realistic context for preparing future health care professionals. Consequently, the text has real life, personally-oriented microbiology cases appropriate for those in nursing, pharmacy, and other allied health disciplines (pre-med, pre-PA, CLS, etc.). This format presents material as a story about the patient as well as information regarding their family circumstances, personal characteristics, and individual motivations.

Medical Microbiology for the New Curriculum: A Case-Based Approach by Roberta B. Carey; Karin L. McGowan; Mindy G. SchusterEncompassing twenty-four clinically important and frequently encountered infectious diseases, the text provides all the necessary background and the most up-to-date treatment of the microbes that cause diseases in humans. Each fully illustrated case study is introduced with a patient history, differential diagnosis, clinical clues, laboratory data, pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention. Presented as unknowns, the cases challenge readers to create a differential diagnosis just as they would in practice, including noninfectious causes that could present similar clinical findings.
