Summary The systemic vasculitides are a group of disorders which are of increasing importance, many of which present significant diagnostic challenges. Vasculitis in Clinical Practice provides insights into the diagnosis and management of these conditions from a group of experts in the field. Both comprehensive and concise, this volume covers the full range of vasculitides including the rarer diseases, while summarizing each chapter with a list of key points for quick revision or reference. In addition, full color illustrations throughout provide a valuable diagnostic aid. Richard A.
