Introduction

Atlas of Psoriatic Arthritis

Eds. Mease and Helliwell

A visual guide to the complex and inter-related diseases of psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis, this volume contains more than 150 images spanning a wide spectrum of variations of the disease. Each chapter comprises an introductory overview, along with a series of relevant images and tables in which the key information on each topic is outlined. The content is comprehensive and authoritative, featuring contributions from leading experts who chart the diseases from diagnosis through to clinical treatment. 

This book contains an expansive but simple to digest summary of the subject, featuring up-to-date discussion by renowned field practitioners on the following areas:

  • Epidemiology
  • Aetiology and pathogenesis
  • Clinical evaluation
  • Paediatric psoriatic arthritis
  • Imaging
  • Skin disease
  • Management of psoriasis
  • Treatment of psoriatic arthritis

 

Along with charting the rise of radiological imaging in the subject, the book also includes sections on juvenile psoriatic arthritis, which will aid clinicians in distinguishing the characteristics and features of the disease in children, as well as discussions of clinical drug trials.

Overall, the book will be of particular interest to rheumatologists, dermatologists, and family practitioners, with the atlas’ images especially providing an essential reference library.
