Rheumatology: A clinical handbook is an essential resource for medical students who need an introduction, understanding and overview of the subject. Most competing texts either burden medical students with information they do not require, or cover rheumatology alongside orthopaedics and as a result compromise fundamentals of rheumatology. This book is different – it provides all the information students need during their rheumatology placement and signposts them to where they can find further information. A definition and brief pathophysiology for each condition is provided, which is linked to the respective clinical features. The book covers the core elements of diagnosis and treatment based on the latest national guidelines to swiftly bring students and junior doctors in training up-to-date. Self-assessment questions and an OSCE chapter provide a way of checking that users have understood and grasped the core material, as well as enabling students to be well equipped for their written and OSCE examinations. Written by two medical students and an experienced consultant rheumatologist, the book combines a reader-friendly writing style with coverage of the material through clinical experience of a professional in the field. Printed in full colour throughout, with an attractive design, a clear and concise writing style as well as a range of pedagogical features including an array of mnemonics, pictures and diagrams, Rheumatology: A clinical handbook is exactly the sort of book medical students and newly qualified doctors would benefit from.

This book is for postgraduate fellows, internists, and students interested in rheu- tology. It contains real cases and is designed to stimulate thought and further reading in this rapidly evolving specialty. I have included a series of common and uncommon cases that I have seen over the past decade in a busy consultative practice and have inserted up-to-date ref- ences and questions you may be asked on ward rounds or in clinic. My hope is that it will be a useful adjunct for physicians preparing for examinations or entering the field and will stimulate further interest. I would like to acknowledge my mentors Pierre Bouloux, MD, Tom Cooney, MD and thank Atul Deodhar, MD for his careful review of the manuscript. This book is dedicated to my parents and wife Batool who have made many sacrifices for which I remain eternally grateful.
