Pediatric Rheumatology


Pediatric rheumatology is one of the 13 subspecialties recognized by the American Board of Pediatrics that serves children with autoimmune and inflammatory disorders.

Rheumatic diseases target joints, muscles, bones and skin, and may manifest as arthritis, myositis or rash. If there are multiple target areas involved, the condition is called a systemic illness and it may affect internal organs such as the kidneys or lungs.

The diseases that are treated by our clinic include: We believe children are so special. This belief is the foundation of our positive spirit and the driving force behind our committment to encouraging schools and communities to give their best to support your children. The more you know about the illness, the better it is for your child and community. This website is designed to share insight, understanding and basic principles of rheumatology, and to provide tools for your direct involvement in your child's care.
