Summary

This authoritative account of the granulomatous disorders provides a comprehensive overview of this complex group of diseases. Collectively, these disorders can present a bewildering array of symptoms, affecting all the body systems. This volume takes full account of recent advances in our knowledge of the molecular biology and immunology of these disorders, and casts fresh light on their diagnosis and treatment. This timely publication is organised to include chapters focused on causative agents and those addressing affected body systems. Highly illustrated throughout, including numerous colour plates, it encompasses and integrates the very latest science, pathology and practical clinical advice. Compiled by international authorities with chapters which combine the expertise of both a pathologist and clinician, it is sure to become an essential source of reference for a very wide readership including infectious disease specialists, immunologists, pathologists, radiologists, ophthalmologists and general physicians.
