  • Concise presentation of basic scientific facts and clinical presentation and diagnosis of allergic 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 hypersensitivity and aids in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disorders.
  • Discussion questions help students move beyond the stated facts to consider the implications of allergic 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 and The Immune System.


Case Studies in Allergic Disorders is designed for undergraduate and graduate students in immunology, medical students, and resident physicians. It describes the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of commonly occurring allergic diseases and introduces the rationale for targeted treatment of allergy. Replicating the successful approach of Case Studies in Immunology, the book presents mechanisms of hypersensitivity through a selection of clinical cases that reinforce and extend the basic science. The cases are largely drawn from the records of Children’s Hospital Boston. Linking the discussion of pathogenesis to actual clinical presentation establishes important connections between the bench and bedside. The book can be used as either a stand-alone text or asa companion to Janeway’s Immunobiology and The Immune System.
