Vasculitis is a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the systematic vasculitides. It is readable and well set out and the use of colour plates greatly enhances the impact of the text... Overall, I enjoyed this book immensely and would highly recommend it as a standard textbook in rheumatology department libraries... In my view Vasculitis by Ball and Bridges will prove to be a major and useful reference work for the interested rheumatologist and nephrologist and for trainees in a variety of specialities. ( Rheumatology, Vol 41)
... This book takes a systematic and quite comprehensive look at vasculitis from a somewhat unorthodox, but very successful, point of view... probably the most comprehensive and detailed single source of information available on vasculitis. It is highly recommended for physicians of any specialty who have an interest in this area. ( New England Journal of Medicine)
... fascinating and informative... Vasculitis is biased towards rheumatologists, but within its pages there is much for the generalist and other specialists. ( The Lancet)
There are outstanding illustrations/photomicrographs of clinical manifestations and an outstanding section on invasive and noninvasive imaging techniques... This book provides clinicians with an excellent resource for the treatment of patients with vasculitic syndromes. ( Doody Publishing)
This unique book brings together every aspect of this broad and challenging disorder... The list of authors is really a "who's who" of contributors to our understanding of vasculitic syndromes over the years. The chapters are very well organized, with clear headings, excellent illustrations, good tables, extensive reference lists, and clear and readable type. The research and investigative aspects are up to date. ( Annals of Internal Medicine, Vol 137, No 9)
This book is a comprehensive review of vasculitis, a fascinating array of life-threatening and minor conditions caused by inflammatory syndromes and diseases that affect the blood vessels. It brings together in a unique way, concepts from both the biology and clinical aspects of vasculitis. Research in clinical immunology now invigorates the entire area of vasculitis, and shapes a rational approach to pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment which is the substance of this text. Over 40 chapters cover known vasculitic conditions, and are illustrated with numerous photographs, diagrams and tables. Some chapters, such as that of aortitis, are brief, and others, such as those devoted to Behçet's disease, are much longer, in keeping with their prevalence. The authors have been chosen based on their unique experiences with vasculitic conditions. Most of these conditions are rare in most areas of the globe, and it is the exceptional clinician who has much experience with more than a few of these; thus, drawing upon authors from all over the world has enabled the editors to provide informed discussions of all of them. The book is illustrated with numerous colour illustrations of clinical manifestations and also contains superb illustrations of invasive and non-invasive imaging. This book is directed primarily at general internists, rheumatologist and clinical immunologists, but will also be of interest to dermatologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, nephrologists, neurologists, pathologists and vascular surgeons.
