The Lupus Encyclopedia is an authoritative compendium that provides detailed explanations
of every body system potentially affected by the disease, along with practical advice about
coping for patients and families. Rheumatologist Dr. Donald Thomas’s complete reference

medical professionals. Thoroughly illustrated with photographs, diagrams, and tables, The
Lupus Encyclopedia explains symptoms, diagnostic methods, medications and their potential
side effects, and when to seek medical attention. Dr. Thomas provides information for women
who wish to become pregnant and advises readers about working with a disability,
complementary and alternative medicine, infections, cancer, and a host of other topics.
