Oxford Textbook of Rheumatology

In keeping with a new editorial team the content of the book has been thoroughly revised, while retaining the broad structure of the previous editions which were a distinctive feature of the book. Th e number of chapters has increased from 126 to 173, refl ecting the increasing breadth of knowledge. New chapters have been written refl ecting the changing face of rheumatology. We have expanded the imaging section to include separate chapters on each of the main modalities, and chapters on therapeutics cover the new biologic agents including areas that we foresee becoming mainstream during the life of the book.

Oxford Handbook of Rheumatology

Rheumatic musculoskeletal conditions are common both in general and hospital practice. Musculoskeletal symptoms are a primary feature of many multisystem illnesses, not only in the autoimmune joint and connective tissue diseases, but also metabolic, endocrine, neoplastic, and infectious conditions. Symptoms are also common in the context of injury, age-related change, and psychological distress. Many conditions in rheumatology are a major source of morbidity and mortality.
