Book Description

Highly Commended, BMA Medical Book Awards 2013

Sarcoidosis represents a major challenge for physicians—not just in respiratory medicine, but across a range of specialties. This book, with a multidisciplinary authorship of the highest standard, presents the most up-to-date thinking on all aspects of the condition, from epidemiology to clinical manifestations and treatment options. Full coverage is given to both respiratory and non-respiratory aspects. The basic science that underlies the disease and its progression is evaluated in detail, and placed into its correct clinical context. Possible future advances are covered in a concluding section.

The editors—all leading figures in the field with international reputations—have compiled the definitive work on the subject in a single volume. The book is fully comprehensive and evidence based and will be an essential addition to the bookshelves of all whose practice involves the care and treatment of patients with sarcoidosis.
