Research and Markets: Bacterial Infections of the Central Nervous System, Vol 96. Handbook of Clinical Neurology

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new book "Bacterial Infections of the Central Nervous System, Vol 96. Handbook of Clinical Neurology" to their offering.

This volume provides a comprehensive accounting of the profound advancements made in the understanding, and treatment of, bacterial infections of the central nervous system. As these types of infections continue to cause morbidity and mortality, a greater understanding of their diagnosis and management is necessary to increase the likelihood of good neurological outcome in affected patients.

This handbook highlights advancements in a variety of areas, including new neuroimaging information on techniques like computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In addition, clinicians will find ivaluable data on Nucleic acid amplification tests, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR (News - Alert)), that have aided in the identification of infectious agents not routinely isolated using conventional culture techniques.

Other topics covered include cerebrospinal fluid analysis, the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of bacterial central nervous system infections, the principles of antimicrobial therapy, and chapters on specific disease entities, including meningitis and HIV.

Valuable insights into the pathophysiological mechanism of bacterial CNS infections * A multidisciplinary reach that provides critical information for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and specialists in infectious disease * Considerable information and emphasis on new diagnostic techniques and laboratory testing

Key Topics Covered:

Pathogenesis and pathophysiology of bacterial CNS infections. Principles of antimicrobial therapy. Lumbar puncture and cerebrospinal fluid analysis. Bacterial meningitis. Brain abscess. Cranial epidural abscess and subdural empyema. Spinal epidural abcess and subdural empyema. Suppurative intracranial thrombophlebitis. Infections of the central nervous system in the neurosurgical patient. Rickettsial and Ehrlichial infections. Tuberculosis and atypical Mycobacterial Infections.

Spirochetal infections. Neurological complications of bacterial endocarditis. Whipple's disease of the central nervous system. Neuroimaging of central nervous system Infections. Toxin-mediated syndromes of the nervous system.
