Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cory B Pittman, MD (Washington University Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of the Hughes (anti-phospholipid antibody) syndrome, written and edited by experts in the fields of rheumatology, obstetrics, hematology, and pathology. The book provides a thorough discussion of the basic science, clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of the syndrome. The first edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose was to address the complete range of conditions associated with Hughes syndrome and to provide a reference text for medical professionals in the fields of rheumatology, immunology, hematology, obstetrics, neurology, and dermatology who diagnose and treat the manifestations of this syndrome. Also, to update the 1st edition. Yes, these are worthy objectives. Yes, the book meets the author's objectives.
Audience: According to the author: Trainees and practitioners in the fields of rheumatology, immunology, hematology, obstetrics, neurology, and dermatology. According to my judgment: It is written more for those in the fields of rheumatology, immunology, and hematology. However, practitioners in other fields may also find the book useful. Yes, the authors are credible authorities in the field.
Features: The book covers the basic science, clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hughes syndrome. The order in which the topics are arranged is very practical. The high quality photographic figures with captions are informative and visually appealing. I like artwork on the hardbound cover. The graphs and tables could be of better quality. They lack visual appeal, and therefore the reader is less likely to spend sufficient time studying them.
Assessment: This book appears to be well-written and well-organized. It is a useful addition to my library, both for its content and as a thorough database of references on the topic of Hughes syndrome. Given the ongoing research and development of new knowledge in this field, the second edition is a welcome update.
