EULAR Textbook on Rheumatic Diseases

Eular 2012 Book CoverThe EULAR Textbook on Rheumatic Diseases found its origin in the successful EULAR On-line Course on Rheumatic Diseases. Its yearly updated reviews of the total of fifty modules form the content of this book. For a balanced view, each chapter is written by two dedicated expert rheumatologists from two different European countries. Most of them are assisted by a junior doctor or researcher from their own department in order to stimulate a focus on modern educational goals and techniques.


The fifty chapters, brought together in this book, encompassing the whole spectrum of rheumatology, form a vital part of rheumatologists' continuing medical education, keeping doctors up to date in daily practice.

The structure of the chapters in this Textbook remains the same as with the modules of the On-line Course: First the learning objectives, then the main text with many figures, tables and pictures, finally the summary points as well as a limited number of key references.

It is the intention of EULAR to publish new editions of this Textbook at regular intervals, not as frequently as the On-line Course, which is refreshed every year, but once every three years. Therefore comments from readers of this Textbook are very welcome ( and will be taken into account for the next edition.
