Rheumatic diseases are multi-system disorders that affect multiple organs caused by inflammation secondary to the inappropriate activation of the immune system. It is commonly associated with, swelling and pain in the joints or muscles along with the internal organ involvement. Any organ can be affected in rheumatic disease along with the involvement of any joint It is important that these conditions are diagnosed so as to salvage the affected organ arrest the progress of disease so that other organs are not affected. Timely treatment also prevents the destruction of the joints thereby preventing disability. The treatment for these conditions have greatly advanced in the last decade and an early diagnosis and treatment will yield a good prognosis and usually normal life

As rheumatic diseases often involve multiple organs it is imperative that a team of experts lead by the rheumatologist is closely associated with the treatment of the patient. Orthopaedic and sports medicine specialists, physicians from multiple specialities such as nephrologists and pulmonologists, trained nurses, physical and occupational therapists, dietician and other allied health professionals work together to provide the best outcome for the patient at the hospital.
