Challenging Cases in Allergic and Immunologic Diseases of the Skin offers clinicians a wide range of challenging cases that are certain to provide hours of thoughtful and instructive review. Using a case study format and including excellent quality color images, Challenging Cases in Allergic and Immunologic Diseases of the Skin consists of five parts and 20 chapters. The chapters cover such areas as allergic rhinitis, allergic diseases of the eye, drug-induced urticaria, cosmetic allergy, drug allergy, latex allergy, atopic dermatitis, vasculitis, and a range of other commonly seen disorders of the skin. Each chapter comprises at least two cases that are followed by a differential diagnosis, discussion, and five multiple choice questions for thoughtful stimulation and excellent value as a teaching tool. Comprehensive, concise, and well-designed in presentation, Challenging Cases in Allergic and Immunologic Diseases of the Skin is a one-of-a-kind resource that will become a standard resource for all clinicians who care for patients with allergic and immunologic diseases of the skin.

Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide a framework for diagnosing and managing complex immunological diseases of the skin. … The audience is dermatologists, and third year dermatology residents would find this book useful. … This is a useful reference for clinicians. I would recommend it to any dermatologist who sees patients. … This book will teach readers how to think, and the test format provides a more active way to learn the material.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)
