The discussion is then shifted towards Anaerobes of Human Microbiota after which the educator specifically highlights Intestinal Microbiota and Gut Microbiota.
Section two elaborates on the General Aspects of Infections due to Mixed Anaerobes. The educator explains Etiology, Epidemiology and Pathogenesis of mixed anaerobes. The Virulence Factors of these microbes are also highlighted followed by an elucidation of B. fragilis and C. difficile. Moreover, the considerations of Approaching Patient with Anaerobic Infection are also addressed by the educator.
The prime focus of section three are the Clinical Manifestations of Infections due to Mixed Anaerobes.

Apart from these, light is also shed on Sinusitis and Otitis, CNS Infections, Pleuropulmonary Infections, Aspiration Pneumonitis, Necrotizing Pneumonitis, Anaerobic Lung Abscesses and Empyema.
Section four covers the topic of Anaerobic Infections. First of all, Intraabdominal Infections and Pelvic Infections are described. The educator then moves towards the explanation of Skin and Soft Tissue Infections and highlights Bone and Joint Infections. At the end of this section, Bacteraemia and Endocarditis and Pericarditis are explained comprehensively.
Section five focuses on Management of Infections due to Mixed Anaerobes. The educator first highlights the process of Diagnosis of these infections and then shifts the discussion towards Antibiotic Therapy and Resistance. The Infections at Specific Sites are peculiarly pointed out and subsequently, a demonstration of Failure of Therapy is provided.
