The Best Five Rheumatology Books  
01 Kelley's Textbook of Rheumatology

This 7th Edition continues to be the most
definitive, comprehensive, and well-referenced resource to consult for
important facts and analyses of all basic and clinical science in the
field of rheumatology. Provides authoritative and encyclopedic coverage
of not only the etiology and pathogenesis of the rheumatic diseases, but
also of biology of the normal joint, immune and inflammatory responses,
evaluation of the patient, musculoskeletal pain and the musculoskeletal
exam, diagnostic tests and procedures, clinical pharmacology, and much
more.  This edition features a bound-in DVD-ROM that includes all of the
images from the book, additional 4-color images not included in the
text, video clips of general examinations (approx. length 45 minutes)and
screening examinations (approx. length 30 minutes).  Each chapter also
has a set of multiple choice questions for use for board review study
included on the DVD.
Found-in DVD-ROM features:

  • Over an hour of video clips of the musculoskeletal examination and abnormal arthroscopic findings.
  • Over 200 additional 4-color images NOT in the book..
  • Image library for PowerPoint downloads includes all images.
  • Self-assessment questions for Board revision


02 Current Diagnosis & Treatment in Rheumatology

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
