The list of contributors to this handsome 8 1/2×11-in volume reads like a Who's Who of the leading authorities in rheumatology and immunology. The text is well supplied with tables, charts, photomicrographs, roentgenograms, and schematic drawings complementing well-written, well-researched presentations on a wide range of subjects in the fields of rheumatology and immunology.

The rheumatology section provides a systematic approach to the basic subject matter with major headings on regional structure and function, diagnostic procedures, differential approach to major rheumatic syndromes, and specific articular and connective-tissue diseases.
