This practical, clinical reference covers the evaluation of patients with musculoskeletal and rheumatic disease. Emphasizes history-taking, physical examination, and pattern recognition. Laboratory investigations and imaging procedures are reviewed, with a focus toward relevance and cost. Includes excellent illustrations, easy-to-read tables, and decision trees where applicable.

  • The text reviews the most common disorders and how to treat them.
  • A detailed introduction to the basic principles of diagnosis and therapy discusses pattern recognition and the musculoskeletal exam.
  • Specific disorders covered include rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue diseases, spondyloarthropathies, infectious arthritis, and infiltrative conditions, bone conditions, and regional rheumatic diseases.
  • Each disease chapter is organized consistently--Introduction, Presentation, Diagnosis, Natural History, Treatment and Methods, When to Refer, Key Points, and Suggested Reading--placing the needed information within easy reach.
  • Regional pain syndromes such as shoulder, back, hip, hand and wrist, foot, and knee pain are covered extensively--unlike other rheumatology texts.
  • Includes recent American College of Rheumatology guidelines.
  • Case studies, tables, and boxed text illustrate key points.
  • Appendix provides a program for patient home care with exercises and other practical information such as walking aids and how to buy shoes.
