Book Description

Physicians caring for children with rheumatic disease need a varied and highly developed set of clinical skills, including general pediatrics, immunology, musculoskeletal medicine and the management of chronic diseases.

With these requirements in mind, the authors of this concise handbook emphasize the most frequently recognized symptom complexes in children. Their initial focus is on musculokeletal diseases that may have multi-organ involvement. They then discuss systemic lupus erythematosis, vasculitis, scleroderma and other auto-inflammatory diseases. Concise text is supported by a wealth of photos and tables.

The book is of use to all young doctors/residents in pediatrics, rheumatology and general medicine, to primary care physicians, and all those in related health disciplines caring for children with rheumatic disease.
