  • About the Book

    Book Summary

    Case Studies in Immunology, Seventh Edition is intended for medical students and undergraduate and graduate students in immunology. It presents major topics of immunology through a selection of clinical cases that reinforce and extend the basic science. Each case history is preceded by essential scientific facts about the immunological mechanisms of that specific disorder. The cases themselves demonstrate how immunological problems are deconstructed in the clinic and each one is followed by a concise summary of the clinical finding and questions which can serve as discussion points.

    The book includes a total of 55 cases and can be used as either a standalone text, review aid, or as a companion to Janeway’s Immunobiology, Ninth Edition and The Immune System, Fourth Edition.

    Features

      Key Features:
      -Concise presentation of basic scientific facts and clinical presentation and diagnosis of immunological disorders.
      -Cases are drawn from actual clinical practice and provide open-ended scenarios that leave room for thought and analysis.
      -Case study format presents the mechanisms underlying immunological dysfunction and aids in the diagnosis and treatment of immune disorders.
      -Discussion questions help students move beyond the stated facts to consider the implications of immunological disorders on other aspects of health and disease.
      -Can be used as both a stand-alone review aid or as a companion to Janeway’s Immunobiology, Ninth Edition, and The Immune System, Fourth Edition.
      -New topics to this edition include: Channelopathies, T-Cell Signaling Defects, LRBA Deficiency, PI3K Delta, Dock 8 Deficiency, and Increased Susceptibility to Candida Infections.
