Abstract
Pediatric Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reflects the rapid progress in one of the most intriguing fields of medicine. The book offers state-of-the-art information on basic immunology, fetal-neonatal immunology, genetic and environmental predisposing factors, epidemiology and natural history of atopic diseases, and allergy diagnosis. Extensive coverage is devoted to skin conditions and food allergy, asthma, rhinitis, specific immunotherapy, eye disorders, sinusitis and secretory otitis media, drug allergies, and anaphylaxis. Fascinating chapters explore such topics as autoimmune diseases, primary immunodeficiencies, pediatric HIV infection, malnutrition and the immune system. Finally, a chapter on prevention of the atopic march indicates how effective early intervention may greatly decrease the upsurge in atopy. Easy to understand and easy to use, Pediatric Allergy, Asthma and Immunology is essential reading for medical students, practicing physicians, allergists, immunologists, and researchers.
