Abstract
This book provides a coherent synopsis on the treatment and management of autoimmune blistering diseases. Each chapter focuses on one condition, and summarizes the present-day literature on currently available therapies, and how they may fit into various feasible treatment algorithms. Many of these disorders can have irreversible consequences, and in some cases the potential to be fatal. The contributing authors are individuals who have devoted their careers to understanding these diseases, and have invested countless hours in their research laboratories and clinical settings. Autoimmune Bullous Diseases: Approach and Management serves as a guide in assisting clinicians to develop their approach to treatment based on the specific disease and its severity. The information and algorithms presented provide pragmatic direction and assistance in the management of patients with these diseases.

Abstract
This book provides a quick study and reference guide for physicians who treat patients with autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs), the most life-threatening inflammatory diseases of the skin. AIBDs are rare, and comprise less than 1% of the dermatological patients. As such, they are often given little focus in general dermatology literature, despite being complicated and demanding diseases . Autoimmune Bullous Diseases Study Guide: Text and Review is written in direct and simple diction with tables and figures to practically illustrate this difficult field. At the end of each chapter the reader is challenged to check the learned matter with multiple-choice questions. It contains protocols and follows international guidelines, making it suitable study material for courses on autoimmune bullous diseases. Residents and researchers in dermatology and adjacent disciplines will find this book useful as a quick guide when dealing with these patients.
