Case Studies in Immunology recapitulates major topics of immunology as the background to a selection of real clinical cases that serve to reinforce and extend the basic science, vividly illustrating the importance of an understanding of immunology in diagnosis and therapy. As well as being a valuable revision aid, Case Studies in Immunology introduces in a clinical setting the major common disorders of immunity, including hypersensitivity types I-IV and autoimmune disorders such as lupus and autoimmune diabetes. It also describes and explains the consequences of some of the most important immune deficiencies. Each case history is preceded by basic scientific facts essential to understanding the immunology behind the disease or disorder. An end-of-case summary, questions, and discussion points end each case. Five new cases have been added to this latest edition: * Omenn's Syndrome * Graft-versus-Host Disease * X-linked Lymphoproliferative Syndrome * Multiple Sclerosis * Auto Lymphoproliferative Syndrome Can be used as a stand alone text or alongside the bestselling Immunobiology by Janeway et al. or Parham's recently published The Immune System.
