We have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Essentials of Medical Microbiology 2nd Edition PDF by Apurba Sankar Sastry; Sandhya Bhat K.
The new edition of this comprehensive guide provides students with the latest information and advances in medical microbiology. Divided into seven sections, the book begins with a discussion on general microbiology, followed by immunology, systematic bacteriology, virology, and mycology.
The second edition has been fully revised and features two new sections covering hospital-acquired infections and clinical microbiology. The extensive text is further enhanced by more than 600 clinical photographs, diagrams, and tables. The book concludes with annexures on emerging and re-emerging infections, bioterrorism, laboratory-acquired infections, and zoonosis (the transmission of disease between humans and animals).
