Textbook of Pediatric Rheumatology (Cassidy, Textbook of Pediatric)

Paediatric rheumatology is often a mysterious specialty for the uninitiated, containing a number of diseases with a reputation for being unusual and rare. However, collectively the rheumatological conditions are not that uncommon, and most clinicians will have seen children afflicted by them. Cassidy et al's book is one way to tackle these conditions and explore paediatric rheumatology in a comprehensive way.
The book is well written by several of the recognised experts in the world of paediatric rheumatology. As every good textbook should, it starts with a basic introduction to the subject then works its way around the underlying anatomical and immunological concepts required to understand the disease processes. The burgeoning knowledge and importance of individual and population genetics is reviewed and explained, and another chapter discusses the sometimes unfamiliar drugs used for children and adolescents with inflammatory conditions. A useful chapter revises the concepts behind clinical investigations rounds off the initial ground work.
