Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease. SLE affects many parts of the body, with joint pain in the knees and hands being commonly reported symptoms. Arthritis is, therefore, one of the most common symptoms of the disease.

This book comprehensively summarizes information about SLE for medical professionals and students. The volume illustrates the process of making accurate diagnoses through systematic interpretation of ABCDEGFGI parameters: A (Alignment): malalignment and deformation; B (Bone): bone changes; C (Capsular lesions): cartilage and intra-articular lesions; D (Distribution): four dimensional distributions; E (Extra-bone): extra-articular soft tissue; F (Further information): further additional medical information; G (Goal): general analysis and integrated comprehensive diagnosis; H (Heal and Heath): treatment and prognosis; and I (Immunological analysis): immunological interpretations.

Key Features:

- Presents information about the clinical features of SLE and differential diagnosis through 11 chapters

- Covers both rheumatic symptoms and systemic symptoms

- Provides a comprehensive approach to SLE diagnosis and management which blends both rheumatology and radiology

- Explains the ABCDEFGI system for diagnosing and treating SLE patients

- Includes more than 750 detailed figures illustrating important information

- Includes references for further reading

The book is an informative resource for a wide range of scholarly and professional readers who may encounter SLE patients in clinical settings: rheumatologists, orthopedists, radiologists, physiatrists, immunologists, pediatricians, general physicians, medical technicians, caregivers and specialists in internal medicine.
