Published Reviews

    "The book is well written by several of the recognised experts in the world of paediatric rheumatology. As every good textbook should, it starts with a basic introduction to the subject then works its way around the underlying anatomical and immunological concepts required to understand the disease processes…Overall the Textbook of Paediatric Rheumatology will retain its place as the standard for its subject. " Dr. Simon Fountain-Polley - Review of 5th edition

    "This remains the gold-standard reference in pediatric rheumatology and is a must-have for any physician caring for children with rheumatic diseases. This much-anticipated revision continues to provide a comprehensive and coherent review of the field. In addition to more up-to-date information on biologics, classification schemes, and disease pathophysiology, this edition also includes updates such as color figures, tables, and images in the book as well as access to an online version with additional information." - Bradley W Ornstein, MD, Doody’s Review, 4 stars!
