A recent review about the book was published in one of the leading infectious diseases journals, “Emerging Infectious Diseases: Clinical Case Studies is an easy-to-use, extraordinarily informative text that belongs on every clinician’s shelf. A collaborative effort among scientists, clinicians, and public health workers is needed to combat emerging infections. This text was written for clinicians, with the content reflecting interdisciplinary perspectives. It elegantly synthesizes the clinical, microbiologic, and epidemiologic information that is critical for patient diagnosis and for recognizing and mitigating outbreaks.” (Clinical Infectious Diseases, August 1, 2015).  The editors dedicated the book to their students and trainees.
