Polish Medical Bibliography
With great satisfaction and hope we established in 2010 a scientfific bimonthly journal entitled “Forum of Infection”. Our intention was to establish an interdisciplinary journal that in its assumption would affect the issue of infections in the broad sense. The fact that the “Forum of Infection” can respond to these needs can be proved by the fact that the quarterly became the official scientific journal of the Society of Clinical Microbiology and covered the patronage of the Polish Society of Family Medicine and the Polish Wound Management Association.It is known that infections may be caused by a number of microscopic pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria or fungi.
With the majority of them present medicine can already fight, while the others continue are a considerable challenge to modern science. For centuries the threat of infectious diseases manifested as epidemic, pandemic – characterized by a typical clinical form, with rapid progress and rapidly spreading.

Nowadays mainly continuous development of civilization, dynamic progress of medicine, continuous selection of resistant organisms determine the infections.
Every day we encounter many forms of infections ranging from the common cold, by bronchitis, pneumonia, and ending immediately life-threatening inflammation of the meninges or caused by bacteria and viruses endocarditis.

We look forward to a multicenter and interdisciplinary cooperation and integration of all medical communities.
We would like to present on our pages key guidelines for the conduct and colliding views on the phenomena caused by various forms of infections and methods for their treatment.
