It has been several years since the publication of the two-volume Fields Virology and the better part of a decade since Textbook of Human Virology, edited by Belshe. In that interval, the rapid generation of new information has continued, and the time has arrived to collect it in a form that will help bridge the gap between research virologist and practicing physician. Douglas D. Richman, MD, of the University of California, San Diego, Richard J. Whitley, MD, department of pediatrics, University of Alabama School of Medicine, and Frederick G. Hayden, MD, department of medicine, University of Virginia, with a group of 85 investigators recruited from institutions worldwide, have collaborated to publish such a volume.Clinical Virology covers the spectrum, from viral structure and molecular biology to epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical diagnosis, and management.
