Diagnosing rare diseases can be challenging, and treating these conditions is complex because of their often quite specific needs and treatment options. To address this, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) has published Rare Diseases of the Respiratory System. Structured into thematic sections, the book covers: the identification of rare diseases of the respiratory system and their differential diagnosis; rare diseases of the lung interstitium; rare diseases of the airways or alveoli; and rare pulmonary vascular diseases. The Guest Editors and authors belong to and/or support the vision and mission of the European Reference Network for Rare Diseases of the Respiratory System (ERN-LUNG), which offers expert support to both patients and professionals. As such, this comprehensive book will prove an excellent resource for healthcare professionals, researchers and students interested in rare diseases of the respiratory system.
