Essentials of Clinical Immunology
The fourth edition of this highly popular book has been extensively revised. The first chapter, a revision of the immune system, has been updated to provide the 'nitty-gritty' a student or trainee needs to know in order to understand diseases that have an immunological basis. Although the remainder of the book's focus is clinical, it covers the underlying pathophysiology of disease so that the reader is left with a lasting understanding of the basis of symptoms, signs, special investigations and management of the patient. It will be of great value to medical students and postgraduate trainees who require a thorough knowledge of the rapidly expanding number of diseases that have an immunological basis.
