Book Preface

This edition of ABC of Rheumatology welcomes a new co‐editor, Dr Lisa Dunkley. Lisa has a strong pedigree in medical education, having previously worked at the Department of Medical Education at University College in London, subsequently at the Leeds Rheumatology Department and now in Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and Sheffield Medical School. Her extensive expertise and experience have substantially enriched this new edition. We have built on the earlier successful editions of the book and added new chapters on radiology and immunology. These new chapters reflect areas in which the field of rheumatology has experienced phenomenal growth in recent years. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is now a well‐established tool in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, whilst biological agents such as anti‐tumour necrosis factor drugs are commonly used in the treatment of several rheumatic conditions.

I thank all authors, old and new, for their excellent chapters. I also thank the publishers for their ongoing support for this book. It is our hope that this authoritative, up‐to‐date, yet easy‐to‐read book will continue to benefit students and healthcare professionals across the world and enable them to better understand rheumatic diseases as well as to appropriately treat patients with these conditions.
