Summary Divided into five expansive sections, this guide provides an in-depth review of crystal-induced arthritis and related disorders. Providing a historical perspective throughout, this work includes detailed descriptions of the clinical features of these diseases, as well as a current overview of their identification, epidemiology, genetics, and underlying pathophysiology. This authoritative guide also reviews case studies, current diagnostic tools, and the prevalence of these conditions while introducing new and emerging therapies for disease management
