Summary The third edition of this definitive and highly-regarded reference work provides a comprehensive review of vasculitis, a fascinating array of life-threatening and minor conditions caused by inflammatory syndromes and diseases that affect the blood vessels. The text uniquely brings together concepts from both the biological and clinical aspects of vasculitis. Research in clinical immunology now invigorates the entire area of vasculitis and shapes a rational approach to pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment, which is the substance of this text. Over 40 chapters cover known vasculitic conditions, and are illustrated with over 250 full-colour photographs of clinical and pathologic findings, diagrams, and tables.
