Infectious Disease Compendium


Warning, Warning, Warning, Danger Will Robinson.

First and for most, the use of this implies you know the difference between a burro and a burrow (1).

If not, seek help from a good text book, or, better yet, an ID consult. Guides such as this are for use by people who fundamentally know what they are doing and need hints and help.

I'm an internist, not a pediatrician; nothing in this compendium should be construed as applying to children. I have enough trouble coping with my own sons.

Use at your own risk. This is always a work in progress. This is the work of one person, so it represents my best effort and my aesthetic, but to err is human. To really screw up takes a computer. This is the result of both.

This represents my opinion and research only and is not approved nor part of IDSA, IDSO, Legacy Health Systems or its employees.

In more legalistic terms:


By downloading and/or using this guide on line, the user shall indemnify and hold harmless Mark Crislip and Pusware LLC from and against any claims, demands, or causes of action whatsoever, including without limitation.

(1)a burro is an ass, a burrow is a hole in the ground.
