Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard K. Robinson, MD (Dwight D. Eisenhower Veterans Administration Medical Center)
Description: This book provides basic information for the practice of allergy and clinical immunology. This is the third edition of this book and contains a new section about allergic eye disorders and expanded coverage of AIDS, transplant immunology, and immunology of infectious disease from the last edition in 1988.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide physicians with a useful guide and reference for the diagnosis and management of allergy and immunologic diseases. Didactic material is minimized but is sufficient to allow understanding of each subject. This is a well-written and edited manual.
Audience: This book is targeted for students and house officers. It will also be useful for primary practitioners, allergy fellows, and practicing allergists. Multiple authors who are credible and well respected in their fields have contributed to this book.
Features: Patient-care guidelines are offered in an outline format. The book is sparsely illustrated. The references are up-to-date and pertinent. The table of contents and the index are adequate. The cover design is attractive and the book is pocket sized.
Assessment: This is a high-quality manual that contains the essentials needed for the practice of allergy and immunology. It is a useful guide pertinent to all levels of training. This new edition offers current and reliable guidelines on the diagnosis and management of allergic disease.
