Rheumatology is a speciality practice of internal medicine focused upon the non-surgical evaluation and treatment of rheumatic diseases. In general, rhematologic diseases are characterized by abnormalities of the immune system. A common manifestation of these diseases is arthritis.
Rheumatologists have special interest in unexplained rash, fever, arthritis, anemia, weakness, weight loss, fatigue, joint of muscle pain, autoimmune disease and anorexia. Some diseases are rare and often more challenging to diagnose by primary care providers.
