About this book

Immunology and Rheumatology in Questions, 2nd Edition addresses through short and concise questions-and-answers (Q&As) on one hand all major aspects of basic clinical and laboratory immunology necessary for understanding underlying immunological mechanisms of autoimmune rheumatic diseases. The majority however of Q&As in this book presents in a laconic way definitions, pathogenetic aspects, clinical and laboratory manifestations, differential diagnosis and the management of all categories of rheumatic diseases including systemic autoimmune, autoinflammatory, metabolic and degenerative. Furthermore, in separate sections of this manual Q&As addressing rheumatic manifestations from other organ systems are included. Finally, a chapter is devoted to treatment of rheumatic diseases analyzing indications and side-effects of different therapeutic modalities with illustrations and diagrams utilized throughout the book to present the information in a clear and schematic way. 

In this fully revised second edition, more than 120 new Q&As have been added and the answers to more than 90 Q&As has been modified after having critically incorporated all new knowledge generated in the past three years in the field of rheumatology, in an effort to bridge classical and current evidence-based knowledge and to present didactic and credible information. This book is valuable to test and acquire knowledge not only for rheumatologists but for every specialist in internal medicine, family practice, physical/rehabilitation medicine and orthopedic surgery.
