Main description:

The most up-to-date and readily accessible rheumatology resource available! A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011! 5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "I was impressed with this book and consider it one of the more useful books I've come across for use in treating patients. Not only is it a good book to read from cover-to-cover, but it's also a wonderful resource for injection techniques as well as therapeutics. No other book provides the practicalities like this does. Based on the ever-changing biologic therapies, one would imagine an update every several years makes sense."--Doody's Review Service The second edition of this quick-reference guide has everything you need to keep pace with this fast-moving field--presented in the acclaimed CURRENT format. Valuable to primary care providers as well as practicing rheumatologists, the book offers a straightforward approach to the management of difficult-to-treat rheumatologic diseases and disorders, such as arthritis, lupus, and sarcoidosis.
