Is there any more dynamic medical specialty than infectious diseases? I don't think so, and I believe the medical literature published in 2012 supports my assertion. Revelations include a paradigm shift in our understanding of the role of asymptomatic bacteriuria, the description of an ehrlichiosis-like illness due to a newly discovered virus, and a sinusitis study based in primary care, office-based practices showing that antibiotic treatment does not improve disease-specific quality of life. This Update reviews clinically based papers that would be interesting and useful to general internists.
