Infections of the Gastrointestinal System

by Chetana Vaishnavi

This book, Infections of the Gastrointestinal System, deals with various types of infections. The subject of GI infections can be addressed as “organism based” or “disease based”. But when gastroenterologists, microbiologists and scientists join hands, it can result in an invaluable asset to all health care providers in delving into the depths of GI infections. Infections of the GI system can be caused by all kinds or organisms inclusive of bacteria, viruses, parasites and, at times, by fungi. Thus, infections of the GI system are an important aspect of clinical practice as they are widespread in countries with poor hygiene and sanitation. Medical science is taking large strides every day. It is impossible for an individual reader to march along with it. Therefore, this book aims at providing a comprehensive and updated knowledge of GI infections for day-to-day reference. The book deals not only with those agents responsible for infections in the GI tract, but also with those affecting the biliary tree, the liver, the pancreas and the peritoneum.
