Reviews

From the reviews of the thirteenth edition:

"... These chapters are as up-to-date as the latest journals ... Any physician who reads the book may feel no need for specialist referral, but rheumatologists will, in fact, feel more confident and assured as they offer their diagnoses and recommend treatment options ..." (G.E. Ehrlich, JAMA, March 2008)

"This primer is designed to provide the most up-to-date information on virtually every disease encountered by rheumatologists and others who treat patients with rheumatologic diseases. … The book is designed for anyone interested in learning in detail about rheumatology. From students to skilled rheumatologists, all will benefit from this reference." (Alfred H. Kim, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)

"A textbook divided into 44 parts, some with several chapters presenting a complete overview of rheumatology including juvenile arthritis. The description of each entity is divided into epidemiology, etiology including genetics, patho-physiology and clinic. There are many illustrations, tables and references. For students, interns, residents, practitioners and their teachers. The number of editions proves its popularity." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 6 (3), March, 2009)
