Clinical Tuberculosis: Essentials of Diagnosis and Treatment

Clinical Tuberculosis: Essentials of Diagnosis and Treatment This many authored book is relatively short for its large subject. It essays the presentation of the dianosis and treatment of tuberculosis. It includes material also on anonymous mycobacteria and on the pathogenesis, pathology, epidemiology, and control of tuberculosis. Although most clinical forms of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis are presented, tuberculous otitis is omitted. The chapers average ten pages in length; many of them are of a few pages only. Their quality and value vary greatly. Some chapters merit special attention, being written by authors doing work of particular interest in their fields. D. T. Smith presents stimulating material on the problems of tuberculin testing, principally based on his own work. Unfortunately, nowhere in the book does a simple recommendation appear of the practical details of doing a simple tuberculin test—this deficiency is also apparent in some other areas where clear recommendations are not made.
