New York/Stuttgart – Neurosurgical Infectious Disease: Surgical and Nonsurgical Management, by Walter A. Hall, MD and Peter D. Kim, MD, recently published by Thieme, is a comprehensive guide that gives surgeons the core knowledge they need to diagnose, treat, and prevent infectious diseases of the central nervous system. It emphasizes newer surgical techniques, including endoscopy, neuronavigation, and intraoperative guidance, as well as nonsurgical approaches. Beyond the basics of preventing, identifying and treating infections, this publication covers topics that are distinctly neurosurgical issues such as intracranial infection and infections caused by implanted devices.

Infections associated with neurosurgery are of particular significance given their proximity to, or location within, the central nervous system; they can cause significant neurological morbidity and mortality. Whether the infection originates from an evolving threat such as insect-borne encephalitides, which could come simply from the bite of an infected mosquito, or a more familiar disease such as bacterial meningitis, the outcome for affected patients is often related to the speed with which the diagnosis is made and appropriate surgical and medical management is initiated.

"This comprehensive work on Neurosurgical Infectious Disease will serve as the singular reference source for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with central nervous system infections. It will provide the essential knowledge for neurosurgeons, neurologists and infectious disease specialists to manage these complex clinical entities." – Walter A. Hall, MD

This excellent neurosurgical reference will be an essential part of the armamentarium used by neurosurgeons and infectious disease specialists in their daily practice.
