Note: The AMA Manual of Style does not have a specific example for referencing UpToDate. 

Cite the UpToDate topic review as a chapter in a book titled UpToDate, edited by T.W. Post, published by UpToDate.  As an online service, there are no page numbers to cite.  Since UpToDate is updated every four months, the publication year for any topic review should be the current year.
