Rheumatology, 2-Volume Set, 6e
In this new edition of Rheumatology, the editors have again attempted tom bring together a large group of world-renowned authors to provide essential information on the scientific basis of rheumatology and the definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, and management of all arthritic, musculoskeletal, and rheumatic disorders. Rheumatology, Sixth Edition, builds on the success of the previous editions.
As stated by Professor Jan Dequeker in his review of the fourth edition, “Rheumatology is the most comprehensive, authoritative rheumatology text designed to meet the complete needs of all practicing and academic rheumatologists as well as arthritis-related health care professionals and scientists interested in disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The edition is firmly grounded on modern medical science, integrating the relevant basic biology with current clinical practice, easily accessible, user-friendly, and a beautifully illustrated color publication.”
For this edition, every chapter has either been substantially revised or, in many cases, entirely rewritten, following a rigorous editorial policy to ensure that the content and format of the book remain consistent and meet the highest possible standards. Each chapter has been updated to incorporate a broad range of new information. Fourteen completely new chapters cover biomedical and translational science, disease and outcome assessment, including new imaging modalities and early emerging disease, clinical therapeutics, and patient management and rehabilitation. The text has been streamlined, ensuring that each chapter contains the most critical and current information in the field, while supplemental materials (including extra tables, figures, and bonus text) are conveniently located online. The index has also been improved, making it easier for the reader to find topics of interest.
The production of this edition of Rheumatology has been a greatly enjoyable team effort. We would like to thank the authors who have contributed to this and previous editions of the book, as well as the excellent team at Elsevier, including Michael Houston, Kelly McGowan, and Louise King, among others. We look forward to bringing you a seventh edition in another 4 years.
