Children and teenagers who present with externalizing disorders such as conduct disorder or impulse control disorder can be incredibly challenging for their parents, teachers, and loved ones. The behaviors of these children can also be vexing for schools and other systems in which they are educated and treated. These children are at increased risk for delinquency, educational problems, and other outcomes, which may negatively impact their lives. These behaviors and the resultant consequences also pose steep costs to our society.

The human body is protected in critical ways as our immune system provides protection from a broad spectrum of infections and injuries. Unfortunately, in some individuals, their immune system targets components of their own bodies, causing autoimmune disease. Many different types of autoimmune diseases exist, each presenting unique symptoms depending on the body system that is damaged. It is not clear what triggers the progression from normal immune reactivity to autoimmune disease, though both environmental and genetic factors are thought to contribute.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common genetic blood disorder in the world. Millions of people in the world have SCD and about 300,000 babies are born with it each year. Readers will learn about the major symptoms of SCD, including chronic anemia, delayed growth, spleen dysfunction, opportunistic infections, vision loss, leg ulcers, stroke, and heart problems. The book explains how the primary cause of SCD is a gene mutation that causes hemoglobin to polymerize in red blood cells, making them adopt an abnormal sickle shape.
