At the outset, I would like to congratulate the author for coming up with this book that presents a case-based approach—a much-awaited book in Medical Microbiology by an Indian author.

Such case-based learning is a must for an about-to-be Indian medical graduate considering the new competency-based curriculum that focuses on a syndromic and systemic approach rather than an individual organism-based approach. Such learning will definitely enable students to choose the appropriate tests for a given syndrome and interpret the laboratory results in a better manner.

Some case-based studies, such as those on topics of sterilization and disinfection, viral hepatitis, and sections of clinical microbiology are very interesting and well-knit.

Though each topic has been made understandable by presenting them in the question-and-answer format, the book stands somewhere in the midst of a theory book and a case-based learning book. Some real-life case-based scenarios presented for each topic while avoiding unnecessary theory bring out the uniqueness of the book.

Overall, a must-have book for teachers to incorporate it in their lectures and for PG students for further reading.

Framing of the book in a vignette style and presenting it in an integrated clinical Case – based pattern is a new concept and well – arranged. It is so written as to provide a better understanding of the subject. The book includes more than 80 clinical cases, and information is presented as per the syllabus provided by the National Medical Commission of India.
