This thoroughly revised fourth edition reflects the changing face of the specialty and the many recent advances in the science, treatment and understanding of rheumatic diseases.
The focus of this comprehensive reference work is the presentation and management of rheumatic conditions at all ages. Where relevant, treatment approaches are evidence-based and cross-referenced to national and international guidelines.
Each clinical chapter provides up-to-date treatment advice illustrated with clinical vignettes as appropriate, and the authors consistently emphasize the overlap of rheumatology with other disciplines. With full color illustrations throughout and a complementary online version, the book is an essential reference for all trainees and specialists in the field.
This book is essential reading for all trainee and consultant rheumatologists, and will also be of interest to specialist nurses, allied health professionals, and primary care physicians who deal with patients with rheumatic and musculoskeletal problems.
