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.

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 .

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.

Abstract
IgG4-related disease is a new systemic disease that has only recently been identified and characterized. However, most clinical practitioners are not yet familiar with it and thus are likely to misdiagnose it. The purpose of this book is to raise awareness of this disease and its diagnostic pitfalls. A wealth of radiological and histopathological images helps clinicians to understand its characteristics in various organs as well as their clinical and basic medical backgrounds. All of the authors are experts who have published numerous important papers in the field. This book will be useful to physicians in various disciplines such as gastroenterology, rheumatology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, urology, hematology, and respiratory medicine, not only as a textbook but as an authoritative and comprehensive reference work as well.

Radiology -- Autoimmune pancreatitis -- Bile duct lesions -- Ophthalmology -- Salivary glands in Mikulicz's disease -- Lung lesions -- Kidney and urinary tract lesions -- Periarterial lesions -- Other organs (central nervous system, prostate) -- Nerve lesions -- Scintigraphy and single-photon emission computed tomography -- Positron emission tomography with F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose -- Part III. Pathology -- Pancreas -- Sclerosing cholangitis -- Lacrimal gland and salivary gland lesions -- Pathological findings of IgG4-related lung disease -- IgG4-related kidney disease -- Retroperitoneal fibrosis and arterial lesions -- Lymph node lesions -- Skin lesions -- IgG4-related hepatopathy -- Part IV.
