In Focus Orthopaedics and Rheumatology is aimed at all medical and health
science students who require an introductory, low cost and highly illustrated
guide to this specialty. The material is presented in double page spreads. The
left-hand page has a synoptic and highly structured text (normally under the
following headings: incidence; clinical features; differential diagnosis; management;
prognosis). The right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs.
