Even the most innocuous everyday activities such as eating a salad for lunch, being bitten by an insect, and swimming in the sea bring human beings into contact with dangerous, often deadly microorganisms. In The Woman with a Worm in Her Head, Dr. Pamela Nagami reveals - through real cases - the sobering facts about some of the world's most horrific diseases: the warning signs, the consequences, treatments, and, most compellingly, what it feels like to make medical and ethical decisions that can mean the difference between life and death. Unfailingly precise, calmly instructive, and absolutely engrossing, The Woman with a Worm in Her Head offers both useful information and enjoyable reading.
