This volume is actually the latest of several editions but, apparently because of a title rearrangement, is not listed as such. The book is divided into five parts. The first, on immunology, has three sections: fundamentals, immunopathology of type I reactions, and immunopharmacology. The second part, devoted to clinical allergy, begins with a general discussion of atopy and then goes on to chapters on rhinitis, hypersensitivity lung diseases, immunodermatology, immunohematology, multi-organ-system problems, and miscellaneous conditions. The third part contains chapters on immune-deficiency disorders, connective tissue diseases, and amyloidosis. The book concludes with two short parts on immunization and veterinary allergy.

The author was assisted by four associates, who contributed seven of the 11 fundamental immunology chapters, two immunohematology chapters, and the chapter on immune-deficiency disorders.
