About Rheumatology profile 5
What is rheumatology?
Rheumatology is a branch of medicine focused on understanding, diagnosing and treating rheumatic diseases. Rheumatic diseases are conditions which typically cause acute or chronic pain and inflammation in the joints and connective tissue.
Many rheumatic diseases are autoimmune disorders, in which antibodies that target cells in these tissues are mistakenly produced by the immune system.
Examples of rheumatoid autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren syndrome and sclerosis.
