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 demonstrate how immunological problems are deconstructed in the clinic and each one is followed by a concise summary of the clinical finding, key questions, and discussion points. The book includes a total of 55 cases and can be used as either a stand-alone text, review aid, or as a companion to Janeway's Immunobiology, Ninth Edition and The Immune System, Fourth Edition. Six new cases have been added to this edition: DOCK8 deficiency, activated PI3K delta syndrome, increased susceptibility to candida infections, LRBA deficiency, T cell signaling defects, and channelopathies.
