Clinical Tuberculosis: A Practical Handbook

Clinical Tuberculosis: A Practical Handbook is a much-needed portable clinical reference providing practical guidance on key aspects of the disease. This pocket-sized book is a useful “how-to” handbook for the clinician managing patients with tuberculosis in either a well-resourced or poorly-resourced setting.

Packed with case studies, clinical pearls of wisdom, and practical advice, this clinical manual outlines day-to-day management of patients as well as treatment and control of this important and ever-spreading global disease. A wealth of diagrams and clinical photographs also helps to make information available at a glance.

It is intended for respiratory physicians, infectious disease physicians, public health workers, and nurses less familiar with the disease, especially in developing world markets where TB and HIV are endemic.
