This compact but comprehensive guide brings together many of the world's leading authorities in the practical management of HIV infection. It represents an international approach, providing detailed and up-to-date information on the clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of the various manifestations of HIV infection. Much attention is paid to drug treatment, and the major clinical trials are reviewed and evaluated. All the significant complications of HIV are presented, with management guidelines, and chapters are also devoted to the psychiatric aspects of HIV and AIDS, the HIV-infected traveller and issues involving health-care providers. Drawing on the best expertise available in the United States, Australia and Europe, this book is an essential clinical reference for physicians.
