Quick Overview
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause and unpredictable course. Since the first description of the mysterious skin lesions of Lady Mortimer by Jonathan Hutchinson, more than one century ago, sarcoidosis remains a puzzling disease in many aspects. Although remarkable advances in investigations of etiology, pathogenesis, and management of sarcoidosis have been made, it still remains inexplicable in many clinical points.

The book “Lesions of Sarcoidosis: A Problem Solving Approach“ is the last one written by Professor Sharma. His original idea was that this book would be of use not only to pulmonologists and internists, but also for practitioners of other specialists because of multisystem nature of sarcoidosis.

Professor Sharma sincerely hoped that this book should be a picturesque guide for all doctors who ever intended to explore numerous manifestations of this mysterious disease. The main purpose of the book is to provide medical fraternity a comprehensive review of possible clinical presentations of sarcoidosis.
Key Features

K. P. Ravikrishnan, FRCP(C), FACP (William Beaumont Hospitals)

Description

ations of lesions of sarcoidosis is a superb clinical resource. It is dedicated to the late Om P.

Sharma, who had a clear understanding of sarcoidosis, a disease that even today remains enigmatic and often elusive.

Purpose

ikely one would see all these clinical presentations. Hence, this book is a great resource for learning about these manifestations of sarcoidosis.

Audience

Internists and almost all subspecialists in medicine will benefit from this book. Pulmonologists, trainees in pulmonary medicine, residents, and medical students will find it very useful. Dermatologists and rheumatologists who often see extra-pulmonary manifestations of sarcoidosis in their patients also will find this book a useful resource.

Features

The authors compile and classify the lesions of sarcoidosis in a systematic and precise manner. Following a brief introduction to the disease, the book covers the variant and extensive clinical manifestations of sarcoidosis.

Dermatological and pleuropulmonary manifestations of sarcoidosis are described well with superb illustrations. The illustrations, radiographs, and photographs are impressive. The bibliographies at each chapter end are extensive and relevant. After completing the book, clinicians will reaffirm the saying of clinicians of the past: "Sarcoidosis the great mimic."

Assessment

This book achieves its intended goals very well. It is a superb resource for all pulmonary specialists.
