Treating rheumatic disorders is usually a complex matter requiring a variety of methods. The selection of a therapeutic regimen depends on the type, severity and the stage of the disease. Thousands of people are affected by this condition with rheumatoid arthritis alone affecting approximately 1% of the population in the UK and other developed countries in the western world. The latest volume in a series that is already an established favourite with clinicians, The Year in Rheumatic Disorders 2003 continues to provide a compact overview of the most important papers published over the past 12 months. Written and compiled by an expert team the journal extends coverage of the first 2 volumes, reporting on the most up-to-date medical literature in this area. Papers are included on osteoarthritis, phospholid syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and the most recent advances in Fibromyalgia Syndrome, a widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown. The expertise of the editors and contributors of this volume ensures that the reader is provided with a swift yet complete current awareness service keeping them up-to-date with progress of this condition. This is an immensely valuable addition to the earlier published volumes and an essential resource for all physicians and specialists involved with treating patients with rheumatic disease.
