Each chapter is sub-divided into sections covering classification, diagnosis and management of the various conditions. The result is a comprehensive and practical guide that will appeal, not only to the allergology specialist, but also to the wide variety of physicians who may be called upon to recognize and treat patients presenting with allergic conditions.
