Description

Lippincott’s Illustrated Q&A Review of Microbiology and Immunology presents essential concepts of medical
microbiology and immunology for students preparing for Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing
Examination (USMLE) and the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX).
Questions are written in the clinical vignette-style used on these examinations. Clinical vignette-style
questions help develop problem-solving skills by requiring students to integrate a patient’s clinical manifestations, history, and demographic information with physical exam findings and laboratory data to identify the disease and choose the correct management options. The questions also assess the student’s ability
to integrate basic and clinical science in order to solve problems. The questions are written at the level of
competence expected of students who perform well on medical licensure examinations.
Many questions have accompanying photomicrographs. Complete explanations are provided for the
answers, as well as each distracter. Questions are divided by chapter into the following categories: Bacteriology, Virology, Mycology, Parasitology, Infectious Diseases, Basic Immunology, and Clinical Immunology.
The review book is also designed to be used by medical students and allied health students as a companion to various microbiology and immunology textbooks. Use of this book will facilitate classroom
learning and provide students with an opportunity for self-assessment in these two disciplines.
Questions are also presented online. Students can work through the online questions in either “quiz” or
“test” mode.
