Infectious Diseases Guidelines 4th Edition
Clinical Transplantation Special Issue: Transplant Infectious Diseases Guidelines, Volume 33, Issue 9
Infections represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality in transplant candidates and recipients. In order for the transplant community to provide comprehensive care to its patients, it is critical that transplant providers have an understanding of the complexity of the field, both with regards to general principles and specific disease entities. Given the constant changes in clinical practice in both transplantation and infectious diseases, periodic critical evaluation and updating of the guidelines is essential to maintain their relevance. This new version of the Infectious Diseases guidelines reflects the evolution of the discipline and is designed to inform current clinical practice.
