Consequences of Intravascular Infection

  • Lawrence R. Freedman
Part of the Current Topics in Infectious Disease book series (CTID)


The clinical features of intravascular infection are secondary to its biology. However, particularly in the early phase, the symptoms are nonspecific, and diagnosis will depend to a considerable degree upon the patient’s appreciation of his symptoms and the physician’s alertness to the diagnostic possibility. In addition, some important biological consequences may not contribute to clinical symptomatology.
