Arthritis and related conditions affect millions of people and cause pain, disability, and, for some conditions, increased mortality. Arthritis is difficult to understand because there are hundreds of different arthritis-related conditions and many different treatments for them. It is difficult to obtain accurate, unbiased information because much of the popular literature focuses on miracle cures. This book sets out to provide concise and accurate information about a wide range of arthritis-related topics and to act as a comprehensive resource for patients with arthritis, their families, and anyone interested in understanding musculoskeletal illness. Small-capital terms for arthritis and related conditions in each section are cross-referenced in the main text of entries. Drug names in small-capital letters are further detailed in Appendix I. Finally, terms in small capitals relating to laboratory and diagnostic tests are expanded upon in Appendix II. Occasionally, a reference to Appendix I or to Appendix II appears following a term in the main text.
