This text addresses the need for a practical handbook on asthma and allergy in adolescents and young adults, which constitutes an interesting and challenging age group. Asthma may diminish in intensity with age but is still an ongoing concern. In addition, compliance with management is not generally successful, with the risk that, the failure to treat it adequately could lead to long-term sequelae (namely, COPD). Finally, obesity and sedentarism in young adults and adolescents can worsen asthma on the one hand, while some can be athletes on the other hand. This ready reckoner aims to help in understanding clinical allergy, which is imperative for every physician who is caring for patients with asthma given its high prevalence and heterogeneous treatment options. KEY FEATURES Covers allergic diseases in general and asthma in detail, and provides comprehensive coverage of clinical features, diagnosis and management, using a case-based approach Creates awareness of the fundamentals of clinical allergy, helping physicians make wise choices in medical and surgical management, especially in resource-limited settings Features insight from international authors with clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma in the specific age group of adolescents and young adults

Ideally every patient with eczema should be patch tested and the importance of this investigation is now universally accepted. The simplicity of the technique belies its many pitfalls, the greatest being to lack the knowledge required to select the correct allergens and to interpret the results. The introduction, nearly 20 years ago, of the journal Contact Dermatitis greatly stimulated the reporting of the clinical side of contact dermatitis but a vast amount of laboratory work has also been published in other journals on the mechanisms and theory of these reactions. The literature on the subject is now quite vast and a comprehensive book on the clinical and research aspects of contact dermatitis has been sorely needed. This textbook was carefully planned to gather together what is known of the subject into a cohesive whole and it has succeeded admirably. It consists of 22 chapters written by 41 contributors, each selected for their special study of particular subjects. Every feature of contact dermatitis has been covered, beginning with its history and even concluding with the names and addresses of those worldwide who have a specific interest in the subject. The text is illustrated and well laid out; it has been broken up into clearly demarcated sections making it easy to read and its information readily accessible. One's own writing concentrates the mind but editing the texts of authors from so many different countries was a task of considerable proportions.
