Clinical symptoms imply the ubiquity of respiratory infections, however pathogenesis and hence management maybe unique. The aim of this book is to present the recent findings in the pathogenesis of infectious respiratory diseases. Certain chapters depict a quick overview of respiratory infections caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Several chapters describe modes of infection, clinical symptoms, diagnosis and treatments for different respiratory infections. Special emphasis was given to tuberculous and non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections in a number of chapters.
The insight brought forth from this book can be valuable for both clinicians and scientists.
