The perfect clinical companion for your immunology course
Case Studies in Immunology 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 with questions that serve as discussion points.
