Medical Microbiology and Immunology covers all aspects of the interrelationship between infectious agents and their hosts. Among the major topics covered are microbial and viral pathogenesis and the immunological host response to infections. The journal also publishes information from other fields of microbiology, including mycology and parasitology.

In 1886, Medical Microbiology and Immunology was founded by Robert Koch and Carl Flügge, who shaped the journal as Editors-in-Chief for more than 20 years. Originally named “Zeitschrift für Hygiene”, it was renamed multiple times in the light of scientific and medical advances and the emergence of new research disciplines, before adopting its current name Medical Microbiology and Immunology in 1971. See "Journal History" under additional information on the right hand side to learn more.
