The symptoms are puzzling, intermittent, and frequently seem unrelated: mysterious rashes, sore joints, fatigue, headaches. The disease is lupus, which, simply put, is what happens to the body when it becomes allergic to itself. It is quite widespread and it is highly deadly, claiming the lives of thousands of patients yearly. Now, with The Lupus Book in hand, lupus sufferers as well as their families, friends, and physicians have a reliable guide that will answer their questions and help them to better manage their day-to-day fight against this debilitating disease.

Review:

"This excellent work takes the most complicated of facts and readily explains them for the layperson. Lupus is not an easy disease for physician or layperson to fathom. Dr. Wallace's book will finally preclude the lists of questions patients ask."--Robert G. Lahita, M.D., Ph.D., College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University"Wallace, who has the largest lupus clinical practice in the U.S., writes for the many lupus patients who do not understand their disease and are fearful of its debilitating symptoms. This book is highly relevant, since nearly one million people suffer from lupus in the U.S., more than from leukemia, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and muscular dystrophy combined."--Choice"Wallace thoroughly explains the body's immunological processes and the causes, diagnosis, management, manifestations, prognosis, and genetic risks of lupus."--Library Journal"The Lupus Book is absolutely fabulous!"--John H.
