About this book


Case Studies in Systemic Sclerosis deals specifically with Systemic Sclerosis in a case study format. Each case presentation includes illustrative figures, a discussion of the pathophysiology relevant to the case, a discussion of management that is both evidence-based and expert opinion-based and several key references for further reading.  With its easy-to-use format, this book presents multiple different manifestations of Systemic Sclerosis to a wide range of readers. Because this disease has a broad range of systemic features, Case Studies in Systemic Sclerosis is a valuable reference tool not only to the community of rheumatologists (trainees, academic and private practice rheumatologists) and dermatologists, but also potentially to internists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, cardiologists and nephrologists.
