The aim of this book is to focus on the FAQs on Rational Antibiotic Therapy. Rational antibiotic use requires accurate diagnosis and appropriate antibiotic use. Antibiotics have radically improved the prognosis of infectious diseases. Infections that were almost invariably fatal are now almost always curable if treatment is started early.

These FAQs have been collected from discussions in various forums. Many important issues pertaining to infectious diseases have been illustrated through concise and well-written chapters in the form of FAQs which cover basic knowledge about the disease, its diagnosis, and management.
