Stiehm’s Immune Deficiencies: Inborn Errors in Immunity, Second Edition, is ideal for physicians and other caregivers who specialize in immunology, allergies, infectious diseases and pulmonary medicine. It provides a validated source of information for care delivery to patients, covering approaches to diagnosis that use both new genetic information and emphasize screening strategies. Management has changed dramatically over the past five years, so approaches to infection and autoimmunity are emphasized in an effort to improve outcomes and disseminate new information on the uses of targeted therapy.

Key Features

  • Covers immune deficiencies that are presented in a practical way, providing helpful information for active clinicians
  • Fills an increasingly deep gap in the information available to clinicians
  • Presents both clinical management and scientific advances for immune deficiencies
  • Provides a primary resource for physicians in the field of immunodeficiencies
  • Includes website access to a range of videos relevant to the topics discussed


Researchers, (post) graduates, educated audience interested in immunology. Researchers, graduates, scientific audience outside of his/her area of expertise

"With over 100 contributors, this current edition serves as a comprehensive resource on immunodeficiency disorders. It presents an up-to-date reference book with detailed information on all aspects of the subject. This authoritative collection is a reliable resource for practitioners, academicians, and researchers in the field." --Doody

"Readers will indeed benefit from this fantastic reference book to help navigate the care of patients with rare conditions of inborn errors of immunity while understanding the genetic defects and pathophysiology of these conditions. Stiehm’s discussion of important clinical concepts bridges the gap between basic science immunology and how to apply it to the diagnosis and management of patients. The book is expertly written and will be an asset on the shelf of every immunologist." --Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol
