Textbook of Pediatric Rheumatology, 5th Edition
In the beginning, we were a handful of naive but eager and explorative young physicians of disparate training, background, and temperament. We joined together with a vision of doing whatever was necessary to find better ways to study the rheumatic diseases of childhood and adolescence, and to treat our patients more effectively in a comprehensive continuum of care. Our successes resulted from consistent and collegial cooperation in pursuit of these common goals. With the first pediatric rheumatology centers in the u.s. in Ann Arbor, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, and Seattle, expansion had occurred to 27 by 1976 at the time of the First Park City Meeting, to 77 today, with a similar development of centers of excellence in clinical care and research in pediatric rheumatology around the globe on every continent. Over the years, the acquisition of specific knowledge in this field has developed at an astounding, accelerated pace. To a major extent the scientific and clinical progress of these decades and its publication has been organized and codified in this Textbook ofPediatric Rheumatology, beginning with the first edition in 1982. It is therefore our distinct privilege to join together to dedicate this fifth edition not only to that early small group of clinics and to their expansion in numbers and effectiveness, but even more to the children
with rheumatic diseases, to their families, and to the now thousands of healthcare professionals endeavoring to ameliorate or cure these diseases and to improve the lifestyles and career opportunities of their patients.
