Description Paediatric Rheumatology 2nd Edition PDF

Paediatric Rheumatology, Second Edition is an indispensable resource for the recognition and management of rheumatological diseases of the young. As well as covering common and rare rheumatological problems, it includes chapters on rheumatological emergencies, designed for quick reference, and essential core clinical skills of relevance to the full spectrum of paediatric rheumatological disease. This Second Edition is fully updated with state- of- the- art descriptions of new autoinflammatory diseases, advances in genetics, and up- to- date guidance on treatments.

Highlights include alignment of management approaches for paediatric rheumatological diseases with recent evidence- based/ consensus European guidelines, a description of North American treatment approaches to juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), updated chapters on more specialist interventions (including immunization in the immunosuppressed, haematopoietic stem cell transplantation) and approaches to management of rheumatological diseases in low- resource/ income countries. Bone diseases are also described in detail including Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis, skeletal dysplasias and metabolic bone diseases. There are many colour plates depicting rashes observed in paediatric rheumatological conditions.
