This book aims to help clinicians assess children with potential rheumatic disease. Such children frequently present primarily with musculoskeletal problems but may also present with multiple organ involvement. Physicians caring for children with rheumatic disease must therefore have a well developed set of clinical skills. These include general pediatrics as well as familiarity with concepts about immunology, musculoskeletal medicine and the management of chronic diseases. The authors emphasise the most frequently recognised symptom complexes in children with rheumatic diseases. Their initial focus is on musculokeletal diseases that may have multi-organ involvement. They then discuss systemic lupus erythematosis, vasculitis, scleroderma and other auto-inflammatory diseases. Concise text is supported by a wealth of top quality photos and tables. The book is of use to all young doctors/residents in pediatrics, rheumatology and general medicine, to primary care physicians, and all those in related health disciplines caring for children with rheumatic disease.
