This second edition of Pediatric Allergy is a wonderful resource for clinicians evaluating and treating children with allergic and immunologic disorders. Principles of diagnosis and management are based on the integration of clinical experience, an understanding of pathophysiology, findings from key clinical studies, and relevant guideline recommendations. The covered disorders range from common but potentially vexing disorders, such as food allergy and asthma, to less prevalent but potentially life-threatening immunodeficiency disorders, such as severe combined immunodeficiency, pediatric human immunodeficiency virus infection, and white blood cell defects. Especially in the arena of immunodeficiency disorders, investigations of rare but potentially life-threatening clinical diseases have led to breakthroughs in the understanding of immune biology.
