A clinician’s guide to rheumatic diseases in children

In the United States alone, roughly 300,000
children suffer from some form of arthritis or rheumatic disease, and
millions more are at risk of developing one of these diseases. In this
marvelously down-to-earth guide, Thomas Lehman--the head of one of the
leading pediatric rheumatology programs in the world--offers a gold mine
of expert advice invaluable for pediatricians who want to become more
proficient in understanding, diagnosing, and treating rheumatic disease
in children. Dr. Lehman helps pediatricians interpret their patients'
complaints and determine whether and what type of medical attention is
needed, explaining what symptoms to look for, what questions to ask,
what tests to run, and what to expect when treatment begins. Using
illustrative anecdotes, this book sheds light on a wide range of
rheumatic disorders--including juvenile arthritis, Lyme disease, lupus,
Kawasaki disease, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome--and it
addresses such crucial topics as drug safety, genetic considerations,
the potential risks to children posed by medications, the difficulty of
family life when a child has a chronic disease, and much more.

A Clinician's Guide to Rheumatic Diseases in Children
captures the expertise of a dedicated physician with over thirty years
of hands-on experience helping children lead normal, happy lives. It
will help pediatricians make sure that patients achieve the best
possible outcome.
