The first volume in the "What Do I Do Now?: Infectious Diseases" series, HIV uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the examination, investigation, management, and prevention of HIV. Each chapter provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. The book addresses a wide range of topics including HBV coinfection, bacterial STIs, ART considerations, immunizations, and more, and is suited for HIV and outpatient primary care providers, medical students and trainees, and inpatient consultants. HIV is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases which clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients living with HIV. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader's ability to answer the question, "What do I do now?"
