This new edition vividly illustrates the importance of an understanding of immunology in diagnosis and therapy.㬬 Case Studies in Immunologyhighlights major common disorders of immunity, including hypersensitivity types I-IV, immune deficiencies, and autoimmune disorders. Each case history is preceded by basic scientific facts essential to understanding the immunology behind the specific disorders.
