In recent years, considerable progress has been made in understanding the vasculitic diseases, largely due to the introduction of effective treatments for diseases that were once uniformly fatal, the conduct of structured clinical studies, and advances in immunology and molecular biology. Despite these achievements, the vasculitic diseases continue to be associated with morbidity and mortality from chronic organ damage, relapses, and the side effects of treatment. Investigations into the mechanisms of vascular inflammation may lead to a better comprehension of the pathogenesis of vasculitic diseases and to treatment that is more effective and less toxic. These areas of promising research, together with current knowledge about the vasculitic diseases, are extensively examined in this new edition, which is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the science and clinical consequences of vascular inflammation in health and disease.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book provides a comprehensive overview of the science and clinical consequences of vascular inflammation in health and disease.”  (European Journal of Immunology, 1 December 2012)

“Overall, this is an excellent source of information on vasculitis for physicians at any level, including practicing rheumatologists.”  (Doody’s, 2 November 2012)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Sams, M.D.(Washington University Medical Center)
Description: This book provides an etiological basis of vasculitis and then moves beyond the underlying biology to provide up-to-date clinical information.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the latest information on the underlying mechanisms of vasculitis and its clinical presentations. The book describes each type of vasculitis so that contrasts and comparisons can be made in order to improve understanding. The material is clearly presented and appropriate for all levels of physicians.
Audience: The book is accessible for physicians with experience in vasculitis, as well as for generalists and specialists who are not rheumatologists who are seeking to better understand a specific vasculitis. The authors provide current information from credible sources to help guide diagnostics and treatment.
Features: The first part of the book discusses the biology of blood vessels and then outlines the mechanisms by which vasculitis can occur. The next section discusses each of the different types of vasculitis, providing clinical information as well as the latest information on the biological basis for each type. Finally, the book concludes with a section on treatment of complications of vasculitis, including surgical treatments. The book's best feature is the way each chapter provides the latest information on the mechanisms that underlie the disease as well as up-to-date clinical information. It does so maintaining an easy readability so that physicians can read and comprehend a chapter in approximately 30-50 minutes. The only shortcoming is that the treatment information for each type of vasculitis could be more detailed.
Assessment: Overall, this is an excellent source of information on vasculitis for physicians at any level, including practicing rheumatologists.
