Abstract
This book presents detailed state of the art knowledge on the humoral primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs), i.e., disorders arising from impaired antibody production due to defects intrinsic to B cells or defective interaction between B and T cells. There is extensive coverage of both basic science discoveries and the latest clinical advances in the field. The book is structured in accordance with the most recent classification of PIDs and also covers updates on the B cell immunological synapse. Readers will find comprehensive, in-depth descriptions of novel humoral PID genes and related clinical applications, mucosal B cells, and the various clinical phenotypes of humoral PIDs. Aspects such as differential diagnosis, clinical management in children and adults, and the role of vaccines are also addressed. The authors are all recognized experts from Europe, Australia, and the United States. Humoral Primary Immunodeficiencies will be of high value for immunologists, pediatricians, rheumatologists, oncologists, internists, and infectious disease specialists and will also be informative for MD and PhD students.

Abstract
Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDs) are a group of inborn disorders of the immune system, characterized by increased susceptibility to infections, autoimmunity, and cancers. Although PIDs were previously considered rare conditions, the number of diagnosed cases is growing rapidly, and about 300 different forms of PIDs have already been recognized. Nevertheless, because of inadequate medical awareness, misdiagnosis or late diagnosis occurs in a significant number of patients, leading to avoidable morbidity and mortality. The first edition of this practical reference textbook was widely welcomed by scientists and clinicians from around the world. This new edition has been extensively revised to reflect advances in knowledge and includes various PIDs not previously covered. For each disease, information is provided on definition, etiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management. Every effort has been made to ensure that, throughout, the text is easy to read and readily comprehensible. The book will represent an ideal resource for specialists when engaging in diagnosis, clinical decision-making, and treatment planning. It will also prove invaluable for doctors in training and other physicians and nurses who wish to learn more about PIDs.

Abstract
Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PID) are a group of disorders involving defects in one or more components of the immune system, and are characterized by an increased incidence of infections, autoimmunity, and malignancies. Although PID seem to be rare, the number of patients diagnosed has increased in recent years, and more than 150 different forms of PID have been identified. Nevertheless, because of inadequate medical awareness, a significant number of patients with PID are either not recognized as having a PID or are not diagnosed as early as they should be. Such delays lead to a substantial increase in morbidity and mortality among affected individuals. Our understanding of PID is improving rapidly, which will hopefully lead to more accurate diagnosis and efficient disease management. This book contains the most recent advances in the field, as well as a concise and structured review of previously identified PID. Although the book's primary focus is on practical diagnosis and management, the pathophysiology of PID is also discussed. This book is a comprehensive yet manageable resource for physicians and nurses wishing to learn more about PID, as well as a useful tool for both doctors-in-training and specialists in clinical decision-making and treatment planning.

Abstract
This book provides a broad overview of the respiratory manifestations associated with Primary Immunodeficiencies (PID) congenital genetic defects such as infections, chronic inflammation, autoimmunity, lymphoproliferation, allergic manifestations, and rare forms of cancer. Since the most common site of involvement in PID is the lung, the pulmonologists (pediatrics or adult), internists and general practitioners may be among the first to recognize the pattern of pulmonary disorders, leading to the diagnosis of PID. Pulmonary complications present a significant cause of morbidity and also mortality among patients suffering from different forms of PID. With the prevalence of lung infections and disease so high in PID patients, respiratory professionals will find this book to be an essential resource for diagnosing, managing and referring PID related pulmonary disorders in clinical practice.
