It's one thing to understand the basic science of immunology. It's another thing to know how that science applies to the realities of patient care. This new resource uses skillfully presented clinical case studies to efficiently demonstrate the practical relevance of immunology knowledge in diagnosing a wide range of challenging conditions. It offers as an ideal way to review the fundamental principles of immunology ... and see them translated into real-world diagnosis and management!
Covers each major area of the field - immunization, hypersensitivity, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency disorders, tumor immunology, and transplantation.
Provides a concise overview of the basic concepts in each area, followed by 6-10 succinct and well-organized case studies that illustrate the associated clinical applications.
Begins each case study with an initial case presentation, complete with full-color clinical photographs, allowing you to put your diagnostic reasoning skills to the test - followed by a list of the key clinical features involved in the case · a one-paragraph discussion of each differential diagnostic possibility · and a summary of the correct diagnosis and treatment approach
