This beautifully presented atlas provides a visual approach to the topic of pulmonary infections. Dr Hill has drawn on the illustrative resources of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary to select a range of graphic images which will enable the user to see examples of both the rare and typical manifestations of these disorders.
Infections of the lung make up a significant proportion of the work of the respiratory and infectious disease physician. This group ranges from tuberculosis, a much-studied disorder which continues to spread in urban communities around the world, to the lung infections acquired in the course of hospitalization and treatment, particularly among the elderly.
This book is a visual guidebook to respiratory infection, consisting of a large number of illustrations and captions, rather than text, enabling the user to visualize many different situations. It will provide a useful desk reference for both the busy practitioner and the trainee.
