Surya hospitals department of Rheumatology assists in the diagnosis and management of children with known or suspected immune deficiencies, rheumatologic (related to muscles, tendons, or joints) or autoimmune (immune response of the body against substance normally present in the body) diseases, and allergic diseases (allergies, asthma, skin allergy, and sinusitis).
children may also become affected by a variety of rheumatologic disorders—diseases resulting from one’s immune system reacting against one or more tissues in the body. Such diseases can manifest as inflammation (redness and swelling) in joints (arthritis), muscles, blood vessels and other organs. The diagnosis and management of these diseases is best coordinated by a specialist in paediatric rheumatology.
Children are commonly referred for outpatient evaluation and management of various types of arthritis (including juvenile rheumatoid arthritis), vasculitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, and other rheumatologic and autoimmune disorders. Children with serious or life-threatening manifestations of these diseases are successfully treated under the guidance of our trained consultants.
