Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Systemic lupus erythematosus is a mysterious, hard-to-diagnose disease that affects an estimated two million people in the United States alone. The unpredictable behavior and uncertain course of lupus raise many questions for sufferers of this sometimes devastating disease. Lahita (medicine, Columbia Univ., and chief of rheumatology, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Ctr., New York) has authored several textbooks on lupus and immune diseases. His coauthor is the director of the "Cope" program for the Long Island/Queens chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America and wrote Coping with Lupus (Avery, 1990). Lahita and Phillips are more than qualified to provide information about lupus, and their writing is clear and their coverage comprehensive. Their question-and-answer format will not be to everyone's taste; however, in combination with the index, it makes finding answers to particular questions quick and easy. Recommended for all patient-education collections.Stacey Hathaway, Wright State Univ. Libs., Dayton, Ohio

    Just having met someone with Lupus, I had questions. This book was a very good source of information that answered many of my questions, in easy to understand language. I found this book to be a good, solid first step to better understand Lupus.

    Almost Perfect

    One of the best books on Lupus to date. I was particularly impressed that the authors know that the 'Blush rashes' are the most common skin problem in SLE. Most doctors only speak to the butterfly rash - aren't even aware of the 'blush.' My only disappointment with this book was that nothing was said about Iritis (aka uveitis), a very serious eye complication that Lupus suffers can get.

    Easy to digest format...

    Here is a book set up in a question and answer format.This makes it easier for the reader to digest the often overwhelming amount of information presented. Because the questions are from real lupus patients, and because the good doctors answer in like vein, I found the book to be very user friendly.
