This book deals with hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), also known as external allergic alveolitis. It is characterized by granulomatous inflammation of the lung parenchyma and small airways. The disease has been with us since 1713, the year of publication of De Morbis Artificum by Bernardo Ramazzini da Capri. A group of highly respected international authorities have contributed to this timely addition to the medical literature on HP, enhanced by informative visual images. The thread of clinical discussion that focuses on the basic scientific information runs through the book. The contributing authors have effectively condensed the ever growing field with an appropriate balance of basic science and clinical information of HP. Written in a lucid and cogent style, the book will serve as a pragmatic, evidence-based guide to physicians-in-training, family practitioners, internists, pulmonologists, allergists, pathologists, physician assistants, and physicians of other specialties.
