Description

The Rheumatic Diseases, Fourth Edition, provides a comprehensive discussion of the clinical features of rheumatic diseases. The book opens with discussions of stress, the steroids and ACTH, immunology and heredity. These are followed by separate on the incidence, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of systemic rheumatic diseases, rheumatoid disease, ankylosing spondylitis, osteo-arthritis and spondylosis, gout, subsidiary and pseudo rheumatoid syndromes, and non-articular rheumatism. This book makes no attempt to express every opinion nor to give references to research papers. It is not a book for the consultant in rheumatology. It is written for the final year student and General Practitioner, so that it can be read in sections or cover to cover. Every effort has been made to keep out unessential detail yet to give a balanced view on any problem likely to arise.
