Reviews

“The purpose is to describe the current challenges in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with tuberculosis. Since tuberculosis is one of the major infections occurring throughout the world, the objectives are certainly worthy. … The book is written for a broad audience that includes all healthcare workers, both clinicians and those in laboratory settings. Medical students, public health students, medical technologists, laboratory scientists, and neophyte as well as more seasoned clinicians can benefit from this monograph.” (Rudolf Jan Kotula, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2015)
