As a comprehensive reference on all aspects of the histiocytic disorders, Histiocytic Disorders of Children and Adults stands out a seminal text on the genetics, pathophysiology and clinical management of this wide range of diseases. The chapters, written by acknowledged experts in the field, cover all aspects of hystiocytic disorders, from Langerhans cell histiocytosis and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, to the uncommon cutaneous and extracutaneous histiocytic disorders. Views on the function of normal histiocytes in the immune system, the pathogenesis, underlying genetic defects, clinical presentation, treatment, controversies in therapy, salvage therapies and the late consequences are discussed in detail. Originally published in 2005, this book will be a valuable resource to clinicians and researchers who wish to learn more about histiocytic disorders.
