This new, second edition textbook 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. It 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 vasculitis conditions, and are illustrated with numerous full-color photographs of clinical and pathologic findings, diagrams, and tables. New chapters include the pathology of vasculitis, autoantibodies, animal models of vasculitis, and PET scanning. Separate sections are devoted to basic science, clinical manifestations commonly seen in vasculitis, imaging and percutaneous interventions, individual diseases and syndromes as well as conditions which can mimic vasculitis. The authors have been chosen based on their unique experiences with vasculitic conditions. Many of the conditions are rare, and it is the exceptional clinician who has much experience with more than a few of these; thus, drawing upon authors from all over the world has enabled the editors to provide informed discussions of all of them.
