Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a very comprehensive summary of the various aspects of scleroderma, one of the most complex and challenging autoimmune disorders to diagnose and treat. … a valuable resource not only for practicing rheumatologists, but also for any physicians who treat scleroderma patients, including gastroenterologists, nephrologists, primary care doctors, and residents. … good number of illustrations and graphs make the subject more interesting and easier to comprehend. … The authors have done an incredible job summarizing all the recent research and advances in this area.” (Saba Beg, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)

“Scleroderma: From Pathogenesis to Comprehensive Management emphasises the multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive care of the scleroderma patient. The book serves as a valuable management guide and scientific review for both the ‘sclerodermaologist’/clinician and the budding researcher seeking in-depth and authoritative discussions on all aspects of scleroderma. The book is recommended to any clinician who participates in the care of our patients with this complex, yet fascinating syndrome.” (R. Saggar, European Respiratory Review, Vol. 21 (126), December, 2012)

“This book integrates the latest developments in scleroderma in terms of understanding its pathophysiology and management. The purpose is to provide an ultimate source that integrates historical management, current pathophysiology, and the possible future of better therapy. … The book is written for rheumatologists.” (Hyon Ju Park, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2012)
