The new edition of Paediatric Rheumatology is an indispensable resource for the identification and management of specific rheumatological disorders. Fully revised to provide up to date knowledge on common and rare rheumatological problems, including chapters on investigations and emergencies, this practical handbook designed for quick reference is essential reading for those who treat rheumatological conditions.
