The only available reference to comprehensively discuss the common and unusual types of rickettsiosis in over twenty years, Rickettsial Diseases will offer the reader a full review on the bacteriology, transmission, and pathophysiology of these conditions. Written from experts in the field from Europe, USA, Africa, and Asia, specialists analyze specific pathogens at the epidemiological, microbiological, and molecular levels, and discuss the latest advancements in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of rickettsial diseases. 398 p.
