Review from previous edition This unique book brings together every aspect of this broad and challenging disorder; this book should be in the hands of all physicians who may have to deal with vasculitis and its many disguises. ( Annals of Internal Medicine)
This new, second edition of the definitive and highly regarded textbook provides a comprehensive review of vasculitisa fascinating array of life-threatening and minor conditions caused by inflammatory syndromes and diseases that affect the blood vessels. Vasculitis , Second Edition uniquely brings together concepts from both the biological and clinical aspects of vasculitis. Research in clinical immunology now invigorates the entire area of vasculitis, and shapes a rational approach to pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment, which is the substance of this text. Over 40 chapters cover known vasculitis conditions, and are illustrated with numerous full-color photographs of clinical and pathologic findings, diagrams, and tables. New chapters include the pathology of vasculitis, autoantibodies, animal models of vasculitis, and PET scanning. Separate sections are devoted to basic science, clinical manifestations commonly seen in vasculitis, imaging and percutaneous interventions, individual diseases and syndromes as well as conditions which can mimic vasculitis. The authors have been chosen based on their unique experiences with vasculitic conditions. Many of the conditions are rare, and it is the exceptional clinician who has much experience with more than a few of these; thus, drawing upon authors from all over the world has enabled the editors to provide informed discussions of all of them.
