Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7rjvws/bacterial)
has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new book
"Bacterial Infections of the Central Nervous System, Vol 96. Handbook of
Clinical Neurology" to their offering.
This volume provides a comprehensive accounting of the profound
advancements made in the understanding, and treatment of, bacterial
infections of the central nervous system. As these types of infections
continue to cause morbidity and mortality, a greater understanding of
their diagnosis and management is necessary to increase the likelihood
of good neurological outcome in affected patients.
This handbook highlights advancements in a variety of areas, including
new neuroimaging information on techniques like computed tomography and
magnetic resonance imaging. In addition, clinicians will find ivaluable
data on Nucleic acid amplification tests, such as polymerase chain
reaction (PCR), that have aided in the identification of infectious
agents not routinely isolated using conventional culture techniques.
Other topics covered include cerebrospinal fluid analysis, the
pathogenesis and pathophysiology of bacterial central nervous system
infections, the principles of antimicrobial therapy, and chapters on
specific disease entities, including meningitis and HIV.
Valuable insights into the pathophysiological mechanism of bacterial CNS
infections * A multidisciplinary reach that provides critical
information for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and specialists in
infectious disease * Considerable information and emphasis on new
diagnostic techniques and laboratory testing
Key Topics Covered:
Pathogenesis and pathophysiology of bacterial CNS infections. Principles
of antimicrobial therapy. Lumbar puncture and cerebrospinal fluid
analysis. Bacterial meningitis. Brain abscess. Cranial epidural abscess
and subdural empyema. Spinal epidural abcess and subdural empyema.
Suppurative intracranial thrombophlebitis. Infections of the central
nervous system in the neurosurgical patient. Rickettsial and Ehrlichial
infections. Tuberculosis and atypical Mycobacterial Infections.
Spirochetal infections. Neurological complications of bacterial
endocarditis. Whipple's disease of the central nervous system.
Neuroimaging of central nervous system Infections. Toxin-mediated
syndromes of the nervous system.
