The most clinically relevant information is provided on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of all major allergic disorders.  Each chapter has a section on "Evidence-Based Medicine" that introduces one to two recent research publications on the subject, and several chapters have been written by new authors. Covering the entire scope of adult and pediatric allergy and asthma and organized by specific organ which guides the reader to diagnostic and therapeutic solutions quickly and easily, the book offers a wealth of outstanding illustrations, key concepts, management protocols, and updated references.  An invaluable contribution to the field, Allergy and Asthma: Practical Diagnosis and Management, 2ndEditionwill be of immense value not only to primary care physicians, but also to fellows in training, residents, nurses, nurse practitioners, and medical and allied health students.

Editorial Reviews

"This update of a 2008 book is a collection of articles on many topics in immunology not usually associated with allergy. . This is an extraordinarily comprehensive yet readable book that is a valuable addition to every clinician's personal library." (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
