This 7th Edition continues to be the most definitive, comprehensive, and well-referenced resource to consult in Rheumatology. for important facts and analyses of all basic and clinical science in the field of rheumatology. Covering both basic and clinical science, the text provides authoritative and encyclopedic coverage of not only the aetiology and pathogenesis of the rheumatic diseases, but also of biology of the normal joint, immune and inflammatory responses, evaluation of the patient, musculoskeletal pain and the musculoskeletal exam, diagnostic tests and procedures, clinical pharmacology and much more.


"'The Kelly' has become the standard American textbook of rheumatology..."

"This text is well written and easily understood. It serves as a sound resource for clinician and scientist alike"
-- The Journal of Rheumatology
