Summary
"Satisfying both the clinician and the investigator, Urticaria and Angioedema, Second Edition chronicles the current body of knowledge in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of urticaria. Written by experts who have extensive personal clinical experience with the disease, this expanded and revised text aids allergists, dermatologists, and clinical immunologists in understanding the pathomechanisms involved in urticaria to ensure appropriate diagnosis and follow-through treatment." "New to the Second Edition: updated content on cellular and clinical practice paradigms; new chapters on epidemiology, diagnostic techniques, acute urticaria, non-hereditary angioedema, systememic mastocytosis, and hypersinophilic syndrome; the latest screening tests for autoimmune urticaria; and emphasis given to new data on autoimmune mechanisms that initiate chronic urticaria and angioedema in some patients, and abnormalities of signal transduction that may be found in both the autoimmune and "idiopathic" subgroups."--Jacket
