Is it a trifecta to review the latest editions of three major rheumatology texts (Kelley’s Textbook of Rheumatology, edited by Harris et al, Rheumatology, edited by Hochberg et al, and Arthritis and Allied Conditions, edited by Koopman and Moreland) in the same year? Or a troika? All have new and revised contents and slightly different emphases. (“When shall we three meet again?” Most likely on a bookshelf in a medical library, as the cost of each is now high enough that most physicians, even rheumatology specialists, will not buy all of them). Each has authors who comprise the elite of international rheumatology (although the one currently reviewed has fewer international authors than the other two).
