Rheumatology in Practice offers chapters which are organised and built around anatomical and regional syndromes, so reinforcing the evidence-based approach. As readers progress through the text they are given more demanding and challenging questions, encouraging them to use their diagnostic skills to identify the main syndromes and the underlying diseases responsible for the disorders in question. The text is lavishly illustrated in full colour, with detailed photos of patient examinations, complemented by radiographs and full colour line illustrations. The text also benefits from the use of summaries using coloured boxing to identify key points in diagnosis and management. Written by two of the most respected clinicians in the discipline, this book will be essential reading for rheumatologists in practice and training.
