Reviews

From the reviews:

"This collection of reviews on a broad range of infectious diseases seen in clinical practice is part of the Emerging Infectious Diseases of the 21st Century collection. … The potential audience for this book is broad; in fact, it could be useful to anyone in clinical practice. … Each chapter is supported by a relatively extensive bibliography. … It provides a good glimpse of new tendencies and future directions in the management of infectious conditions commonly seen in clinical practice." (Carlos E Figueroa, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2009)

"Emerging Issues and Controversies in Infectious Disease ... edited by I.W. Fong, successfully summarizes the diagnosis and management of commonly encountered infectious diseases. ... The book is well written and properly referenced. ... The book provides excellent summaries of the pathogenesis, pathobiology, and microbiology of each syndrome that is discussed. ... The book will be helpful for readers who seek a clinically oriented synthesis of current approaches to the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases." (Jose G. Montoya, New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 361 (4), July, 2009)

“Divided into 12 chapters, this volume … tackles difficult management questions that challenge the infectious disease clinician on a daily basis. … Fong’s book provides a detailed analysis of the evidence … for myriad management approaches that could be taken for an infectious disease. … Overall, I recommend Emerging Issues and Controversies in Infectious Disease to infectious disease fellows as well as practitioners … as a way to keep the evidence behind clinical practices close at hand.” (Amesh A. Adalja, Journal of the American Medical Association, December, 2010)
