Important strides have been made in understanding the pathophysiologic basis of many inflammatory conditions in recent years, but rheumatology remains a discipline in which diagnosis is rooted in the medical history skillfully extracted from the patient, the careful physical examination, and the discriminating use of laboratory tests and imaging. Moreover, selection of the most appropriate therapy for patients with rheumatic diseases also remains heavily reliant upon clinical experience. Medical disciplines such as rheumatology that depend significantly upon clinical wisdom are prone to the development of systems of ‘Pearls’ and ‘Myths,’ related to the diseases they call their own, a ‘Pearl’ being a nugget of truth about the diagnosis or treatment of a particular disease that has been gained by dint of clinical experience and a ‘Myth’ being a commonly held belief that influences the practice of many clinicians – but is false. This book will pool together the clinical wisdom of seasoned, expert rheumatologists who participate in the care of patients with autoimmune diseases, systemic inflammatory disorders, and all other rheumatic conditions.

One of the founders of the field of pediatric rheumatology, Dr. Jerry C. Jacobs, comprehensively discusses the care of children with rheumatic diseases and musculoskeletal disorders in this clinical reference. The author has completely revised and updated the text and references. A significant portion of the book is devoted to differential diagnosis; in fact, one of the book's strongest points is the detailed, illustrated description of the physical examination of joints in children. From the reviews of the first edition: "The section on the differential diagnosis of arthritis is the most comprehensive treatise of the subject that I have seen." #New England Journal of Medicine#1 "This is a book that one can pick up and read sections of and go back to again and again, and as such should be readily available wherever people are caring for children with joint complaints." #British Medical Journal#2 "Photographs, both clinical and pathological, radiographs, tables and graphs appear on almost every page and the layout is good so that the text is attractive as well as readable." #British Journal of Rheumatology#3 "...deals with all the facets of rheumatism or arthritis likely to be met with in the clinic. ...Above all the book is user friendly: very comprehensive index sections facilitate access to material, and the provision of many lists and summary tables helps in the location and clarification of information. ...The whole results in a book that is pleasant and surprisingly easy to read ...it would form an ideal library copy, both for selective reading and reference, and should be read by all paediatric rheumatologists." #The Lancet#4
