This text, appearing 4 years after its seventh edition, reflects the major changes that have occurred in genetics, immunology, diagnosis, treatment, evidence-based medicine, and publishing. The addition of a third editor and assistants for images and pathology, the redrawing of nearly all illustrations for uniformity, and an extensive incorporation of new authors /contributors emphasize the changes. Although the overall format is retained, major sections have been completely rewritten, reflecting progress in biology, diagnosis, and treatment.
