Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas Chacko, M.D.(University of South Florida College of Medicine)
Description: "This is a concise and easy to access manual about the complex field of clinical immunology. "
Purpose: The purpose is to provide physicians and other healthcare professionals with an introductory book on clinical immunology. It also covers basic immunology, laboratory investigations, and the treatment of various immunological disorders.
Audience: This book is geared toward novice students, first year subspecialty residents in allergy and immunology, and other physicians who want to learn basic immunology as it impacts clinical immunology. It provides the key features without getting lost in details.
Features: The 426 pages are divided into four chapters: basic immunology, clinical immunology, immunotechniques and diagnostic testing, and treatment of immunological disorders. Each chapter has multiple 2- to 4-page sections on various topics. At the end of some sections, there are references for further reading. Diagrams and a self-assessment test end each chapter. Case presentations (14 total) are dispersed within some chapters.
Assessment: This is an excellent book on the basics of clinical immunology. The sections are arranged to allow for quick retrieval of key facts. The self-assessment exams keep the reader actively thinking to emphasize salient information. Other sources are necessary for a more in-depth review of this complex subject, but this is a great start, even for those with considerable skills in these areas. This book will be particularly helpful for the novice student or physician who wants to learn about clinical immunology.
