Prepared by residents and fellows with senior faculty advisors at the Washington University School of Medicine, this quick-reference manual outlines current concepts and practice guidelines in the rapidly evolving fields of allergy, asthma, and immunology.

The book contains symptom-oriented and disease-oriented sections and covers both acute and chronic problems, including drug allergy, anaphylaxis, eosinophilia, immunodeficiency, and latex allergy. Appendices include commonly used allergy and asthma drugs, laboratory values for tests in immunology, and a sample schedule for perennial aqueous immunotherapy. This manual is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.

The Washington Manual® Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Subspecialty Consult can fulfill that function. Carefully written by fellows, faculty, and practitioners mainly from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO, the stated purpose of this book is 'to provide enough evaluate a patient until more in-depth reading can be done on a particular topic.'.... "One of the best chapters in the book is titled 'Drug Allergy and Desensitization.' In this chapter, Dr. Jost, one of the main editors, makes a wonderful presentation of this complex problem. The pretreatment schedules and desensitization protocols provide practical information that can be particularly helpful for the busy resident or fellow.... "There are two more chapters by Dr. Jost that are particularly laudable. 'Conditions Associated with Eosinophilia' and 'Primary Immunodeficiencies' are both complete, accurate, and well referenced and clearly would be helpful for students and residents as a starting point in their learning about these complicated topics. "Students and residents seem to have a growing interest in fellowship training in allergy/immunology. The Washington Manual® Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Subspecialty Consult is useful to whet the appetite of the student or resident looking for a short, entry-level text about allergic diseases."—Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology ------------------------------ 193 Title: Essentials of Family Medicin, 5 th edition Authors: Philip D.
