About this book

This book brings awareness to a neglected condition that is nevertheless prevalent world-wide. Much focus is justly given to pulmonary tuberculosis, one of the key medical scourges of humanity, but this disease also often manifests itself in organs outside of the lungs. There is however a surprising lack of information available on extrapulmonary TB, which this book aims to remedy. Specifically, research, as well as epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment options, are discussed in detail by an international list of experts.

This comprehensive product serves as a valuable resource to numerous fields of medicine due to the presence of extrapulmonary tuberculosis throughout the human body.

“The authors are writing for clinicians managing patients with extrapulmonary tuberculosis, and the book is well suited for this audience. I suspect that this will be a valuable book in the collection of practitioners who commonly see these patients; for most clinicians in highly developed areas the book will be interesting … . This is a useful clinical reference for clinicians in many parts of the world.” (Dimitri Drekonja, Doody's Book Reviews, July 19, 2019)
