Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Judith L. Nerad, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a general overview of HIV infection and pulmonary complications. Specifically, it reviews HIV biology and how the lung is impacted, and gives an overview of the HIV epidemic and the infectious and non-infectious pulmonary complications, including their diagnosis and treatment.
Purpose: The purpose, as stated by the editors, is to provide a comprehensive compendium of the pulmonary consequences of HIV infection for clinicians and basic scientists that would synthesize disparate information into an accessible format. These are worthy objectives and they are met.
Audience: The book is written for those practitioners who are new to the field of HIV care, including students, residents, fellows, and practitioners, including subspecialists. The editors are credible authorities.
Features: This is a general overview and concise synthesis of data that are changing as quickly as the epidemic. It summarizes what is known and well documented to date in terms of HIV biology and pulmonary involvement. Separate chapters on each infectious agent are helpful. A chapter on infection control measures offers a broader perspective. The author appendix includes all authors cited in the references. The chapters are well-referenced. Some proofreading errors were noted. A review of world epidemiology of the HIV epidemic might have been included, as the chapter on this topic addressed the European continent only.
Assessment: This is a good, concise overview of the pulmonary complications of HIV infection. It is a practical reference for practitioners in the field. The only comparable publication is "Overview of Pulmonary Complications" from the December, 1996 volume (17:4, 621-31) of Clinics in Chest Medicine, which shares some of the same contributors.

Booknews
Since the advent of the AIDS epidemic, the lung has been recognized as a prime target of the virus. To inform critical decision-making as well as intimate avenues for future research, two dozen state-of-the-art reviews are presented by US and several European contributors on the basic and clinical features of pulmonary diseases in HIV-infected individuals. The opportunistic aspects of pulmonary manifestations<-->as well as infection control for the pulmonary specialist<-->are addressed in major sections on: an overview of HIV infection, effects of HIV on the lung, the diagnosis of pulmonary disorders, pulmonary infections, and noninfectious pulmonary disorders.
