Rheumatology is otherwise termed as Clinical Immunology; for the sake of continuity and ease of identification among patients the term rheumatology is still retained. As of now, it is formally acknowledged that the underlying cause for a disease like rheumatism often descends from a deregulation of the normal functioning of the human body’s immune system. Hence, diseases developing as a consequence of deregulation (or modified regulation) of the normal functioning of the immune system can adversely affect (virtually) any organ of the body.
In a comprehensive explanation, when the immune system of an individual goes ‘rogue’ in an abnormal manner that instead of protecting the body, it starts damaging its cells & tissues and an entirely discrete set of ailments called Autoimmune Diseases.
