A comprehensive and cutting-edge review of how practicing physicians can best treat multiple drug resistance in bacterial, viral, protozoal, and helminthic infections. The authors focus on the major hospital and community-acquired pathogens, including S. aureus, S. pneumoniae, Enterococcus, Acinetobacter, and M. tuberculosis, and on the management of such common problems as multiple drug-resistant urinary tract infections and gonorrhea. Among the resistant tropical organisms covered are Salmonella typhi, malaria, and Burkholderia pseudomalei. Resistance to such important antiviral classes as antiretrovirals and anticytomegalovirals is also discussed, as are those measures necessary to prevent the spread of infections patients.
