Book Description :

Some people with psoriasis can also develop psoriatic arthritis, when the immune system attacks the joints as well, causing inflammation. Like psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis symptoms flare and subside, vary from person to person, and even change locations in the same person over time. Psoriatic arthritis can affect any joint in the body, and it may affect just one joint, several joints or multiple joints. For example, it may affect one or both knees. This issue will include articles on Genetic and Epigenetic aspects of psoriatic arthritis, Clinical features and diagnostic considerations in psoriatic arthritis, Natural history, prognosis and socioeconomic aspects of psoriatic arthritis, Etiology and pathogenesis of psoriasis and many more!

Book Description :

Rheumatic and autoimmune diseases are often present in women during the childbearing years and as such, correct management of pregnancy throughout its course is of significance to all those affected. Previously women with systemic rheumatic diseases were counselled against pregnancy as the majority of medications carried potential or perceived teratogenic risk. But in recent years new therapies have emerged that have advanced treatment. Patients have experienced significant improvements in physical function, quality of life, and reduced damage accrual. As a result, an expanded cadre of health care providers now need to be able to manage pregnancy in women with underlying rheumatic disease, both in acute or chronic settings. Practical Management of the Pregnant Patient with Rheumatic Disease is a quick-access guide of the most up-to-date understanding of the interplay between pregnancy and rheumatic diseases and principles of management before, during and after pregnancy assisting in decision making regarding treatment of women with autoimmune diseases. This collection of 70 cases covers pregnancy counseling, the management of disease flares, thromboembolic disease, the management of patients with end organ disease, advice on medications, obstetric complications, infections and the management of rare diseases in women with rheumatic diseases before and during pregnancy and post-partum. The handbook provides concise recommendations for all providers who may encounter women of child-bearing age including rheumatologists, gynaecologists, paediatricians, primary care providers and health professionals dealing with pre-conceptional and pregnant women with rheumatic diseases.

Book Description :

Rheumatology is a subspecialty of medicine that focuses on the biology, cause, diagnosis and the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal and other systemic diseases. The field of rheumatology is expanding rapidly and several very exciting developments have occurred during the recent years. Firstly, there has been a new dramatic understanding of the nature of inflammation and the possibility of specifically regulating the aberrant immune inflammatory response. Secondly, an understanding of pathogenesis has lead to the development of new, more targeted therapies. Challenges in Rheumatology has assembled an impressive group of international experts who have studied specific aspects of certain rheumatic diseases and have extensive experience either in pathophysiology, or with the in-depth diagnosis and/or management of rheumatic patients. They communicate their knowledge and experience to the reader in chapters that are conveniently organized as pathophysiology, clinical manifestations and diagnosis of selected rheumatic diseases, medical and perioperative orthopedic management, and the economic impact of rheumatic diseases. We hope that this book will help trainees become better physicians and scientists, and that it will help practicing rheumatologists to provide better care, and ultimately, improve the quality of life of our patients.
