It's one thing to understand the basic science of immunology. It's another thing to know how that science applies to the realities of patient care. This new resource uses skilfully presented clinical case studies to efficiently demonstrate the practical relevance of immunology knowledge in diagnosing a wide range of challenging conditions. It offers as an ideal way to review the fundamental principles of immunology...and see them translated into real-world diagnosis and management!
