An Infection is defined as - a disease caused by micro organisms especially those that release toxins or invade body tissues. So the invasion and multiplication of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites that are not normally present within the body is called infection and the diseases that they so produce are called infectious diseases. Infectious diseases hold significance because these diseases produce more disability and death around the world than any other cause. All these infectious diseases have been thoroughly described in this chapter of Practice of Medicine called ‘Infectious Diseases’.
