Rheumatology Secrets: Diagnosing Inflammatory Disease in Primary Care

Andrew J. Gross, MD, chief of the UCSF Rheumatology Clinic, helps providers sort out the common complaints of pain in the hand, shoulder, back and elsewhere. He presents a systematic approach to distinguishing inflammatory causes – including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis – from noninflammatory causes, and reveals how subtle differences in symptoms point to certain conditions, which tests are useful (and which are essentially useless), and when referral is warranted.
