About this book


Case Studies in Systemic Sclerosis deals specifically with Systemic Sclerosis in a case study format. Each case presentation includes illustrative figures, a discussion of the pathophysiology relevant to the case, a discussion of management that is both evidence-based and expert opinion-based and several key references for further reading.  With its easy-to-use format, this book presents multiple different manifestations of Systemic Sclerosis to a wide range of readers. Because this disease has a broad range of systemic features, Case Studies in Systemic Sclerosis is a valuable reference tool not only to the community of rheumatologists (trainees, academic and private practice rheumatologists) and dermatologists, but also potentially to internists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, cardiologists and nephrologists.

From the reviews:

“This book takes a novel approach to systemic sclerosis, using case studies to highlight many different clinical findings in scleroderma. The cases are practical and make the information from each chapter more memorable. … it is clear that this book is most appropriate for rheumatologists, from fellow to expert clinician. The authors of each chapter present their information in a knowledgeable presentation that instills confidence in their explanations and recommendations. … Overall, the case format makes this book more enjoyable to read.”­­­ (Michael L. Sams, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2011)
