Rheumatology, a sub-specialty of internal medicine and pediatrics, focuses on the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases. These diseases primarily affect the joints, soft tissues, and are often related to autoimmune and heritable connective tissue disorders. Many rheumatic diseases are now understood as disorders of the immune system, making Rheumatology an increasingly important field in the study of immunology. A significant advancement in modern rheumatology is the development of biologics or disease-modifying agents, which have greatly improved the control of severe diseases.
