Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joshua F Phillips, M.D.(University of South Florida College of Medicine)
Description: This third edition provides a thorough and comprehensive review of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of common allergic diseases. Emphasis is placed on the allergic history and physical examination with further attention to appropriate diagnostic tests and information on when to refer to an allergist/immunologist. The more than 40 contributors are experts.
Purpose: The book is designed as a guide to the general approach and management of allergic diseases.
Audience: As noted in the preface, this is intended for use by primary care physicians, but it also would be excellent for new trainees in the subspecialty of allergy and immunology.
Features: Chapters are presented as review articles, with abstract-style summaries and medical subject heading (MeSH) keywords. Introductory chapters address the pathophysiology of allergic diseases and the approach to the allergic patient. Subsequent chapters focus on individual allergic problems such as anaphylaxis, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, and many others. Other chapters are dedicated to specific therapies such as corticosteroids, monoclonal anti-IgE, antihistamines, and leukotrienes, as well as the workup of recurrent respiratory tract infections in children.
Assessment: At 484 pages, this is more of a comprehensive resource than a pocket guide. Individual points are not specifically referenced, instead suggested readings are listed at the end of each chapter. Illustrations and photographs are black and white rather than color and there are a few minor spelling errors. Despite these minor problems, this is a highly detailed and practical guide for all physicians, but particularly for primary care
