One-third of the world's human population is currently infected with tuberculosis. Tuberculosis remains epidemic, causing close to two million deaths each year. Most of these deaths occur in developing nations; however, developed nations also struggle with tuberculosis, contending with such growing challenges as drug resistance, immigration, immunosuppression, and nontuberculous mycobacterial infection. Nearly 30 years after the publication of the first edition, the Sixth Edition of this comprehensive reference gathers the most current science and tools available in the fight against tuberculosis, enabling readers to fully understand the underlying mechanisms of tuberculosis and correctly diagnose and manage the disease.
