Diagnostic Microbiology of the Immunocompromised Host 2nd Ed.

Advances in cancer therapy and transplantation are increasing the numbers of immunocompromised patients throughout the world. This comprehensive review presents state-of-the-art diagnostics for infectious complications in the immunocompromised patients. Providing complementary views of often complex diagnostic challenges, the new edition presents topics such as host biology and antineoplastic and transplantation techniques; the basis of immunosuppressive conditions ranging from diabetes to age-related immunosuppression; the approach, interpretation, and limitations of the laboratory diagnosis of infections caused by a wide range of etiologic agents; laboratory diagnosis of infections of organ systems, such as respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, and central nervous system; and, diagnostic aspects of prosthetic devices and catheters, healthcare-acquired infections, and morphologic considerations (anatomic pathology). New sections discuss tissue pathology, HIV, hepatitis viruses, papilloma and polyoma viruses, and aerobic and anaerobic bacteriology. This book will inform laboratory medicine specialists, pathologists, technologists, students, and clinical care professionals who are involved or interested in the care of patients who are immunocompromised.

Strategies for providing optimal care to this high-risk patient group.

The immunocompromised patient population is increasing throughout the world. Major advances in transplantation techniques have expanded access to lifesaving therapies and improved outcomes in these high-risk populations. An understanding of the biology of these infections, host conditions, and the limitations of technologies used to detect and quantify such pathogens is critical to optimal care.

This new edition of Diagnostic Microbiology of the Immunocompromised Host covers all aspects of state-of-the-art diagnostics for infectious complications in the immunocompromised patient. Editors Randall Hayden, Karen Carroll, Yi-Wei Tang and Donna Wolk, assembled the contributions of a team of preeminent authors to discuss a broad range of topics, including

relevant aspects of host biology, antineoplastic, and transplantation techniques and the basis of immunosuppressive conditions ranging from diabetes to age-related immunosuppression

approaches, interpretations, and limitations of laboratory diagnosis of infections by a wide range of specific etiologic agents

laboratory diagnosis of infections of specific organ systems, such as respiratory tract infections, gastrointestinal tract infections, and central nervous system infections

special topics such as prosthetic devices and catheters, healthcare acquired infections, and morphologic considerations (anatomic pathology)

future diagnostic technologies and their potential impact on the field

Diagnostic Microbiology of the Immunocompromised Host is a resource for laboratory medicine specialists, pathologists, technologists, students, and clinical care professionals who are involved or interested in the care of the immunocompromised host.
