Product Description

Product Description

Case Studies in Immunology, Sixth Edition, presents major topics of immunology through a selection of clinical cases that reinforce and extend the basic science. The case histories illustrate essential points about the mechanisms of immunity and describe immunological problems seen in the clinic. This new edition vividly illustrates the importance of an understanding of immunology in diagnosis and therapy. Case Studies in Immunology highlights major common disorders of immunity, including hypersensitivity types I-IV, immune deficiencies, and autoimmune disorders. Each case history is preceded by basic scientific facts essential to understanding the immunology behind the specific disorders. An end-of-case summary, questions, and discussion points conclude each case. Case Studies in Immunology can be used as a stand-alone book, or as a clinical companion alongside Janeway's Immunobiology, Eighth Edition and The Immune System, Third Edition by Peter Parham. The book includes a total of 53 cases. The Sixth Edition is extensively revised and updated and includes ten new cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the USMLE 25 Sep 2006
By J. A. Fernandez M.D. - Published on
The book is full of high yield tables and figures. I think is useful for the USMLE but only after reading another source like Medical Microbiology and Immunology Examination and Board Review or from Kaplan. It also has many interesting questions at the end of each case. Is a very well organized text; don't think that you're going to see only cases and questions, NOT it begins each case with the basic concepts in that topic, then the case, and detail explanations of the disease, and some questions. If you don't have the time to read the complete text, I think that you can do very well just with the tables and Figures(full color), it contains some MRIs, CT, x-rays, and electron microscopies. Most of the cases are about the most high yield diseases (immunologic diseases) found in the USMLE and some are about diseases that you may have never heard but that may be tested as gene knock-outs or mutations cases. Is useful for USMLE Step 1,2 and 3 since it gives you basic concepts, pathogenesis and explanations about treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to learn and reinforce! 11 Jun 2014
By Amazon Junkie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this book along with Kuby Immunology while taking the class. This book gives a little summary of background before each case. It helps you to reinforce what you learn and helps me to retain the information better. I took this class as an undergrad and I was able to understand the material in this book. Definitely worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for case studies in immunology for Medical and Graduate students. 29 Aug 2013
By PinguGuchu - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Case studies by Raif Geha is the one should buy if they are looking for better grades, because this book covers all the topics in immunology and their application through these case studies. I bought this book for one of PhD courses in immunology and guess what lot of cases asked by the examiner was from this book. I recommend this book to each and every Graduate or Medical student.

Great book for beginning or intermediate immunology students. It was definitely helpful during my college (300 level) course. Case studies were interesting and illustrated broad points of immunology.

The book is great because it teaches immunology based on the cases, so it keeps you interested in reading it.
