Stedman's Dermatology & Immunology Words is revised and refreshed! This edition is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and authoritative reference on dermatology, immunology, rheumatology, allergy, and transplantation terminology available. In this new edition, you will find thousands of terms for conditions like acne, contact dermatitis, alopecia, eczematous dermatoses, autoimmune diseases, allergies, allergic asthma, and rheumatologic disorders. Transplantation terms, including words for tissue engineering, HLA typing, and antirejection drug therapies have also been added.
Designed with the busy medical language specialist in mind, all terms are fully cross-indexed for quick and easy lookup. The appendix section provides 44 illustrations with useful captions and labels; normal lab values; sample reports, including hard-to-find ones for transplantation procedures; common terms by procedure; and drugs listed by indication. For quick reference, we have also included lists of common allergens and transplant organizations.
