Journal of Rheumatology and
Connective Tissue Diseases

About the Journal

Rheumatism is an auto-immune disease which affects joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, vasculitides, and connective tissues. The study of the disorders associated with them is generally referred to as Rheumatology. Rheumatology is a branch of immunology. One of the major changes in modern Rheumatology is the development of new drugs called biologic or disease-modifying agents, which can control severe disease more effectively.

A connective tissue disease is any disease that has the connective tissues of the body as a target of pathology. These disorders can be inherited or acquired, and can present with a wide range of systemic inflammation and immunological features. The autoimmune connective tissue diseases include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis.
