Like every edition before it, this book is written principally as a guide for physicians and other healthcare providers. While it is intended to be oriented toward patient evaluation and management, there are also discussions of the underlying immunologic mechanisms, pathophysiology, pharmacology and diagnostic techniques. Because atopic diseases are prevalent, and becoming more so, we hope that a variety of healthcare providers will find this edition useful as they care for patients with allergic and other immunologic diseases. We have added four new chapters dealing with cough; pruritus; gastrointestinal disorders, namely, eosinophilic esophagitis and gastroesophageal reflux; and the results from the "alphabet soup" of asthma clinical trials such as CAMP, SMART, and IMPACT. This edition also includes a companion Web site with fully searchable text, as well as additional references, tables, and figures. Throughout the book, bold, italicized call-outs denote these extra web materials.
We believe that caring for patients with atopic diseases sometimes is best accomplished in collaboration with physicians from other specialties. Therefore, about one quarter of the chapters are actually written by other specialists with whom the allergist-immunologist is likely to collaborate. Those specialties include dermatology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, psychiatry, pulmonology, and radiology. We are indebted to each of the contributing authors, and hereby express our heartfelt gratitude for their participation in this newest edition of Patterson's Allergic Diseases.
