Chapters are arranged alphabetically, by disease name. Each section is divided into four sections:

1. Descriptive epidemiology
2. Summary of clinical features
3. Status of the disease in the United Kingdom
4. References

There are 347 generic infectious diseases in the world today. 199 of these are endemic, or potentially endemic, to the United Kingdom. A number of other diseases are not relevant to the United Kingdom and have not been included in this book.
