Book Description

This is a concise, highly accessible introduction to medical virology, incorporating essential basic principles as well as a systematic review of viruses and viral diseases. It pays particular attention to developments in anti-viral therapy that are becoming increasingly effective in modern medicine. It is an ideal textbook for the information-overloaded student and an invaluable everyday companion for the busy professional who needs a good understanding of the current state of medical virology.

In keeping with the highly successful format of other Illustrated Colour Texts, it presents the subject as a series of succinct 2 page ‘learning units’, using a superb collection of clear illustrations and clinical photographs, concise yet comprehensive text and key point boxes to aid quick access to information and examination preparation.

So whether you are a medical student, junior doctor, medical scientist, trainee in infectious diseases or student on another allied medical course, this book is here to make your life easier! It will also provide a very solid foundation for any who plan to delve deeper into this fascinating field.

Editorial Reviews


"Virology comes in a handsome 140- page book in the series of ICTs. This guarantees quality of presentation; well illustrated throughout, with drawings and photographs, colour used on every page. The text is kept brief and to the point...This is one of the best books on virology I have ever come across. It is easily read with the information given distilled to the important points, yet concise,comprehenisve and accurate...If you are a medical or nursing student, a junior doctor, or a doctor or nurse in practiceand you want to revise on virology, look no further. This is the book for you."
