About this title
Oxford Textbooks in Rheumatology

The third edition of this definitive and highly-regarded reference work provides a comprehensive review of vasculitis, a fascinating array of life-threatening and minor conditions caused by inflammatory syndromes and diseases that affect the blood vessels. The text uniquely brings together concepts from both the biological and clinical aspects of vasculitis. Research in clinical immunology now invigorates the entire area of vasculitis and shapes a rational approach to pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment, which is the substance of this text. More than 40 chapters cover known vasculitic conditions, and are illustrated with some 250 full-colour photographs of clinical and pathologic findings, diagrams and tables. Separate sections are devoted to basic science, clinical manifestations commonly seen in vasculitis, imaging and percutaneous interventions, individual diseases and syndromes, as well as conditions that can mimic vasculitis. Many of the conditions are rare, and it is the exceptional clinician who has much experience with more than a few of these; thus, the invaluable experience of the international team of authors makes this edition truly indispensable.
This volume is the definitive reference for rheumatologists, clinical immunologists, and general internists, and will also be of interest to dermatologists, gastroenterologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, nephrologists, neurologists, pathologists, vascular surgeons, and pediatricians.
