The result of modern pathological research, this book offers quickly accessible and clearly arranged information on the 29 most important diseases that belong to the complex of rheumatic diseases: It includes clinical features, helpful marginal notes, an extensive subject index, a comprehensive bibliography, and approximately 300 illustrations, most of which are light, electron, or scanning electron micrographs. The reader is presented with a useful basis for diagnostic considerations and therapeutic decisions. By intensively analysing disease processes and their stuctures and by integrating modern immunological and molecular biological knowledge, the author has succeeded in providing the different pathological entities with a more distinct profile. New results have been achieved, particularly in the fields of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Seronegative Spondarthritides, and Osteoarthritis.      

Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"But it is one of those 'must have' books that we all dip into from time to time when we need relevant background, scholarship, overview and insight. This book will have relevance when many others are remaindered; it has the hallmarks of classic."

A. J. Freemont in "Rheumatology" Jul 2002, 41: 837 (British Societey of Rheumatology)

"This is one of those rare medical books that is a pleasure to pick up and browse. ... What it does very well is to encapsulate one man's perspective and experience of pathology and pathogenic processes of rheumatic diseases within a historic milieu. ... it is one of those 'must have' books that we all dip into from time to time when we need relevant background, scholarship, overview and insight. ... it has all the hallmarks of a classic." (A. J. Freemont, Rheumatology, Vol. 41, 2002)
