Starting with historical, epidemiological and sociocultural issues, this book presents clinical and molecular biological aspects of pediatric infectious diseases. The text offers new insights into the pathogenesis of infection, and updates on diagnostics, prevention and treatment of pediatric viral, fungal and bacterial diseases, as well as emerging new pathogens. The book will interest an interdisciplinary audience of clinicians and non-clinicians: pediatricians, infectious disease researchers, virologists, microbiologists and more.
