Tick-Borne Diseases of Humans presents state-of-the-art information on disease epidemiology, transmission, and ecology. The book is divided into three sections, each of which can be used independently or in concert with the remaining two sections. Section I integrates divergent information relevant to the full spectrum of tick-borne diseases, incorporating tick biology and identification, distribution of the diseases ticks transmit, and various strategies for tick control. In addition, this section comprehensively reviews the clinical approach to a patient with a possible tick-borne affliction. Section II is devoted to in-depth profiles of specific diseases, including information on disease history, biology, epidemiology, ecology, transmission, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Section III examines the geographical distribution of tick-borne diseases and their vectors.
A significant book that examines the striking increase in incidence and our subsequent awareness of a broad array of tick-borne diseases.
