Infectious diseases account for a third of all deaths in the developing world, especially Southeast Asia, yet the pathogens that affect poor people attract little attention. Case in point is Melioidosis, a difficult to diagnose and potentially fatal disease, to animals as well as humans. It is also a potential agent for biological warfare & terrorism. This book describes the epidemiology, pathology, pathophysiology, clinical feature, diagnosis, management & prevention of this infection. A bibliography is included with 224 references.
