This new companion to Hochberg et al.'s Rheumatology masterwork focuses on the momentous recent advances in our understanding of the genetics and immunology of psoriatic and reactive arthritis, and their implications for diagnosis and management. Leading international authorities explore new concepts in genetic and pathogenic mechanisms and early diagnosis; provide comprehensive, well-illustrated coverage of clinical features; evaluate the very latest therapeutic options, including biologics; and discuss clinical outcome measures.
