About this book

In this updated third edition of the critically-acclaimed volume, expert physicians assemble user-friendly, clinically-oriented guides to aid in the day-to-day management of the allergic patient. With an emphasis on common allergic diseases and the pharmacological tools to control them, Allergic Diseases: Diagnosis and Treatment, Third Edition disseminates the practical knowledge that practitioners have accumulated through practice and teaching in the field of allergy and immunology.

This entirely revised third edition updates topics from the second edition and now covers in detail the use of antihistamines and antileukotrienes. Another new chapter will help physicians treat children who experience recurrent respiratory tract infections. Other topics include diagnostic tests, insect stings, sinusitis and otitis media, ocular allergy, atopic dermatitis, and food allergy.

Allergic Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment, Third Edition, is intended for the front-line physician who cares for allergic patients and will help any physician improve the care offered to those patients.

Reviews

"...stands alone as a practical, readable resource for the nonspecialist physician caring for patients with allergies." -JAMA

"...highly detailed and practical guide for all physicians, but particularly for primary care." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:87 - 3 Stars

"...a gold standard reference of special value in every practice. It is ideal reading form primary care physicians, family physicians, general practitioners, internists and pediatricians." (Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical Immunology)

"Comprehensive and highly practical, this new edition offers an up-to-date, user-friendly approach to the diagnosis and treatment of allergy. The major emphasis is on common allergic diseases and the agents used to control them. To keep the approach fresh, some new authors were solicited, while returning authors were asked to write on different topics. Chapters have been added on antihistamines, antileukotrienes, and recurrent respiratory tract infections in children." (Consultant)
