The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis is known to have many underlying causes and can present in a variety of ways, and with a range of symptoms. In an addition to the Atlas series, the authors draw on a collection of illustrations to produce what will be welcomed as an invaluable guide to the recognition and diagnosis of this disease. The greater part of the Atlas is configured as a comprehensive catalogue of these presenting signs and documents the progression of disease as it is manifested in each of the principal joints. In each case, examination findings are reviewed, and differential diagnoses discussed. The final part of the book presents a summary of current treatment options, including both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies, and surgery. The structure of the contents and the attention to detail in the layout of this volume ensure that the Atlas of Osteoarthritis achieves its objective of providing the busy practitioner with a reliable guide to a common disease.
