Paediatric Rheumatology

The study of rheumatic disorders in children and adolescents is the focus of Pediatric Rheumatology, a subspecialty of Pediatrics. Rheumatological diseases in children are caused by immune system dysregulation, which results in an exaggerated immune response and hyperinflammation that attack the child's own cells and organs, including the joints, eyes, skin, lungs, heart, gut, and brain.

One should suspect these diseases in children with-

·        Persistent joints swelling/pains/limpingfor more than a month-Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

·        Prolonged fever with or without rash/joint pains for more than 2weeks-Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

·        Prolonged fever (in months) with weight loss/photosensitive rash over exposed parts of the body/oral ulcers/bodyache-Juvenile Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

·        Recurrent episodes of undiagnosed fever with rash/joints pain/abdominal pain-Autoinflammatory Syndromes.

·        Prolonged muscle weakness (easily fatigued, inability to climb up stairs/stand up from a sitting position or trouble sitting up from a laying position) and rash over knuckles of hands/elbows and eyes-Juvenile Dermatomyositis.

·        Thickening and tightening of skin of any part of the body- Scleroderma

·        Recurrent redness of eyes/diminution of vision-due to underlying Autoimmune Uveitis.

·        Bluish discoloration of fingers of hands and feet on exposure to cold-Raynaud’s phenomenon

      When compared to adult patients, most of these illnesses respond very well to various medications and have favourable prognoses.
