Summary note:
"Case Studies in Immunology presents major topics of immunology as background to a selection of real clinical cases that serve to reinforce and extend the basic science, vividly illustrating the importance of an understanding of immunology in diagnosis and therapy." "As well as being a valuable review aid, Case Studies in Immunology introduces in a clinical setting the major common disorders of immunity, including the hypersensitivity types I-IV and autoimmune disorders such as lupus and multiple sclerosis. It also describes and explains the consequences of some of the most important immune deficiencies."--BOOK JACKET.
