The new edition of Lecture Notes on Medical Microbiology has been completely rewritten under the editorship of Dr Elliott. This didactic volume is clearly written and easily digested, and contains sections on bacteriology, mycology, virology, and parasitology, along with a general section on the spread of infection and use of the microbiology laboratory.


"...the presentation in this book is excellent. And there's also an 'organism index' at the back as well as a subject index." Surgo, Glasgow University Medical Journal "I have found this book to be a very handy reference guide, all main topics are covered and are in an easy-to-read style. This book is particularly suited to students who need a good introduction to medical microbiology, and also to those working in healthcare professions who may use this book as a quick reference material. Clear and detailed pictures can be found on the photographic plates, which are another bonus. As a recently graduated student soon to enter the field of medical microbiology I have found this book an invaluable revision and reference guide. Both being concise enough but also with enough detail to satisfy." Reviewer, Amazon.co.uk
