This new publication functions as a practical working guide to the management of patients with allergic disorders, focusing on "what to do next". Fold-out algorithms in each chapter summarize the key stages in diagnosis and management, and the algorithms remain visible as the reader works through the chapter. Each algorithm section is then considered in detail on a double-page spread. This innovative method of presentation thus guides the reader through the steps used by experts in the field in establishing a diagnosis and treating patients with allergic disease.
