About the Authors
  • This authoritative and comprehensive account looks at the reemergence of toxoplasmosis as a significant and potentially fatal infection. A team of acknowledged international experts review the latest diagnostic techniques, and the management of infection in pregnant women, neonates, the eye, transplant and other immunosuppressed patients, including AIDS patients. The contentious issue of the role of screening during pregnancy and in the newborn is covered in depth. The introductory chapters on biology, immunology, and epidemiology of the infection provide essential background to understanding the clinical disease. The full range of treatment strategies are presented in an easily accessible form.

    "[T]his is the single best reference on toxoplasmosis...an invaluable tool for any physician diagnosing, treating or educating others in toxoplasmosis." 5 Stars! Doody's Review Service G

    "There are few if any alternative books that cover this specialized and important disease so comprehensively." Doctors.net

    "...a succinct yet comprehensive account of the major clinical features of toxoplasmosis... I recommend this volume to microbiologists and epidemiologists, as well as to clinicians of different specialties, such as primary care physicians, gynaecologists, and paediatricians both in practice and in training, and all those who care for patients affected by T gondii. The wealth of references also makes Toxoplasmosis: A Comprehensive Clinical Guide a valuable resource for further reading and research in this specialty." Olfica Djurkovic-Djakovic
