"Clinical Allergy" is a complete text which replaces a previous, more limited presentation, entitled "Allergy of the Nose and Paranasal Sinuses," published in 1936. This new volume embraces the entire field of allergy, but still with particular emphasis on the nose, the paranasal sinuses, the ears, the eyes, and the tracheobronchial tree. With regard to the eyes, there is a special chapter, entitled "Allergy in Ophthalmology." The subjects covered in this field include diagnostic procedures, dermatologic conditions related to the eye, allergic conjunctivitis and blepharitis, vernal conjunctivitis, phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis, keratitis, focal infection and bacterial allergy, the uveal tract, the lens, the retina and choroid, the optic nerve, and cortisone (cortone®) in the treatment of ocular conditions. An adequate bibliography is placed at the end of each chapter.
