“This overview of the inflammatory myopathies goes through the pathophysiology, diagnostic testing, imaging, and treatment of these diseases, with up-to-date references. … The book is written for rheumatologists and possibly neuromuscular specialists … . This well-written book provides a detailed and current view of the inflammatory myopathies and the evidence-based approach to them. … the authors and editor have done a laudable job of compiling the most current and pertinent information available.” (Chris Phillips, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)

“In 11 chapters the authors review recent knowledge on the above group of disease, including dermatomyositis. … With many illustrations, most in color. Of interest to rheumatologists, neurologists and physical therapists.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 8 (2), December, 2010)

“This book provides a comprehensive review of the most common and uncommon inflammatory myopathies in eighteen well organized chapters, including a step-by-step review of the skeletal and extra-skeletal manifestations, diagnostic criteria, environmental risk factors, and treatment outcomes. Each chapter is written by an expert in a different medical field … . Radiologists, rheumatologists, neurologists and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment in afflicted patients should find this book very useful and informative.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, October, 2009)
