    An Introduction to Rheumatic Diseases

    Rheumatic autoimmune diseases are debilitating, painful conditions that cause substantial morbidity and mortality. They constitute a wide spectrum of disorders, which can be due to an abnormal immune response in a specific area, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis,  or can be systemic, such as  systemic lupus erythematosus and systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). They are challenging to diagnose since they often present with nonspecific symptoms. The management of these conditions has been transformed in recent years with the development of biological disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs and targeted synthetic disease modifying drugs. However, many patients fail to achieve remission or develop side effects.
