There are many standard textbooks of Rheumatology but none with an emphasis on the rheumatic diseases in the context of women and child bearing and the diseases that affect children. This book aims to fill this important gap. Children with rheumatic diseases are a neglected lot in our country. Early diagnosis and appropriate therapy are standards of care that are not available to the vast majority of these patients. This book highlights common issues that confront the pediatrician. The pediatric section of the book deals with clinically relevant topics and addresses juvenile idiopathic arthritis PUO and pediatric rheumatology the approach to a child with a connective tissue disease and systemic vasculitis neonatal lupus and finally discusses the transition of care of the pediatric rheumatology patient to the adult team.
