Polymicrobial diseases, those involving more than one etiologic agent, are more common than is generally realised and include respiratory diseases, gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, keratitis, hepatitis, periodontal diseases, multiple sclerosis, renital infections, intra–abdominal infections, and pertussis. This new volume provides an overview of the current knowledge of these mixed infections in both animals and humans and explores the contribution to disease made by interacting and mutually reinforcing pathogens, which may involve bacteria, viruses, or parasites interacting with each other or bacteria interacting with fungi and viruses. The emphasis is on identifying polymicrobial diseases, understanding the complex etiology of these diseases, recognising difficulties in establishing methods for their study, identifying mechanisms of pathogenesis, and assessing appropriate methods of treatments.
