By III, Joseph W. St. Geme

This publication describes the starting to be physique of knowledge at the epidemiology, medical manifestations, transmission, pathogenesis, prognosis, and remedy of Kingella kingae infections in children. furthermore, it covers experimental equipment which were built to review the microbiology, genetics, and virulence elements of K. kingae, details that offers the root for brand new ways to remedy and prevention of K. kingae disease. With this content material in brain, excerpts from the ebook may be of relevance for clinicians who deal with pediatric sufferers, for medical microbiologists who're curious about detecting organisms in scientific specimens, and for scientists who're learning K. kingae in an attempt to enhance novel ambitions for antimicrobial treatment and new methods to prevention.

First remoted within the Nineteen Sixties by way of Elizabeth O. King, a bacteriologist on the CDC, Kingella kingae was principally overlooked over the following twenty years as a human pathogen as a result of its unusual restoration from sufferers with illness. despite the fact that, in fresh years K. kingae has been more and more well-known as a clinically very important pathogen in young ones, and is presently famous because the prime explanation for osteoarticular infections in youngsters in increasingly more nations. examine into this organism has grown significantly over the last 15 years, leading to a greater appreciation of the significance of K. kingae in pediatric sufferers and of the molecular mechanisms of disease.
