In the five years since the publication of the first edition, there have been significant changes in clinical HIV care. The growth of aids in the developing world is continuing at an alarming rate, the introduction of highly-active antiretroviral therapy has presented new complications, and the increased longevity of HIV-infected patients has changed the issues involved in long-term HIV care. The second edition has been completely revised with new clinical information, drug interactions, antiretroviral therapy, and more. The succinct explanations combined with the copious illustrations make this the essential tool for the care and management of HIV patients.
