Oxford Textbooks in Rheumatology

  • A practical and comprehensive guide to assessing, diagnosing, and managing the most common forms of arthritis.
  • Brings together world-leading experts and a prestigious international panel of authors.
  • Highly illustrated in full colour and with summary boxes and key points at the ends of chapters.
  • Provides a strong clinical focus, with full coverage of joint failure and major crystal arthropathies.

New to this Edition:

  • Fully revised and updated, with over half of chapters completely rewritten or replaced.
  • New full sections on gout and crystal arthropathies, recognising that although commonly associated with osteoarthritis these may present as the primary diagnosis.
