This second edition of Salem Health: Infectious Diseases & Conditions presents essays on a variety of topics in infectious, or communicable, diseases. Original articles have been updated and new articles added to bring the content up to date.
Scope & Coverage
This A-Z encyclopedia arranges 632 essays covering all aspects of infectious diseases. This title surveys infectious disease from a variety of perspectives, offering historical and technical (disease-specific) background with a balanced discussion of discoveries, developments, and prognoses. Essays on specific diseases and conditions constitute the core coverage and range from discussions of the common, such as acne and influenza, to the rare, such as prion diseases and necrotizing fasciitis, or flesh-eating bacteria.
The set also includes essays reflecting the global reach of infectious disease, exploring topics such as emerging and reemerging infectious diseases, developing countries, epidemics and pandemics, endemic diseases, tropical medicine, globalization, neglected tropical diseases, water quality and treatment, sanitation, and travel. Prominent in the set is discussion of the work of the World Health Organization and other such global health agencies.
