The new edition of Allergy, by Drs. Stephen Holgate, Martin Church, David Broide, and Fernando Martinez, uses an enhanced clinical focus to provide the clear, accessible guidance you need to treat allergy patients. A more consistent format throughout features new differential diagnosis and treatment algorithms, updated therapeutic drug information in each chapter, and additional coverage of pediatric allergies. With current discussions of asthma, allergens, pollutants, drug treatment, and more, this comprehensive resource is ideal for any non-specialist who treats patients with allergies.

  • Prescribe appropriate therapies and effectively manage patients’ allergies using detailed treatment protocols.
  • Identify allergic conditions quickly and easily with algorithms that provide at-a-glance assistance.
  • Explore topics in greater detail using extensive references to key literature.
  • Manage allergies in both adult and pediatric patients using coverage of treatment practices for both in each chapter.
  • Stay current on hot topics including asthma, allergens, pollutants, and more.
  • Get up-to-date coverage of cell-based condition with brand new chapters on Eosinophilia: Clinical Manifestations and Therapeutic Options and Systemic Mastocytosis.
  • Apply the latest best practices through new and updated treatment algorithms.
  • Find therapeutic drug information more easily with guidance incorporated into each chapter.

In 1992, we published the first edition of an entirely new text on allergic diseases and their mechanisms based on specifically designed, clear and informative diagrams. This allowed us to produce a text that found a unique niche between the more heavily referenced books and the more superficial guides. In this edition, the reader was introduced to the individual cells and mediators that participate in the allergic response and this information was then built on to describe the histopathological features, diagnoses and treatment of allergic responses occurring in all major organs.
When preparing the second edition, we took note of the feedback of many clinicians who asked us if we could put primary emphasis on the clinical manifestations of allergy and augment this with a solid scientific background. We kept this format for the third edition. This format has appeared to be very successful with our readers, so much so that it was awarded ‘Book of the Year’ prize by the British Medical Association.
Now, 19 years after the original Allergy we are at the fourth edition with two new editors. Dr Lawrence Lichtenstein has retired and we welcome Dr David Broide and Dr Fernando Martinez to the editorial team. We have also updated the format slightly by emphasising the clinical aspects while reducing the cellular science to a single chapter introducing mechanisms of allergic disease. Furthermore, two new chapters have been added, one on eosinophilia, including eosinophilic oesophagitis and the other on systemic mastocytosis.
One thing that has not changed is our policy of inviting international authorities, often two or more authors from different countries, to work together to produce their sections. Although this approach is not without its logistical problems, we believe it has produced a more authoritative text and we thank all the authors for their forbearance. Indeed, we owe a great debt of gratitude to the many experts who have contributed such informative chapters.
As readers, we hope that you will appreciate the fourth edition of Allergy and that you find its content enjoyable and educative to read. As we requested in the first three editions, please give us your feedback on the book so that we can refine it even further in the future.
