This is a practical reference volume for the student or practising
physician to aid him in the investigation, diagnosis, and treatment of allergy in
children. It is based on procedures used at The Hospital for Sick Children in
Toronto, Canada. In this new fourth edition, material has been added and established
treatments up-dated. The allergies to which children are subject are discussed in
clear, straightforward language, as are the basic principles of atopic disease.
There are sections on prophylaxis of allergy, common mistakes in the care of the
allergic patient, the optimistic approach to the care of the allergic patient,
anaphylaxis in man, and the immunoglobulins. Each section is documented. Four
appendices offer various diets and discuss immunological deficiency diseases, beta
adrenergic blockade, and the pathophysiology of asthma.
