Rheumatology is a specialty in internal medicine and pediatrics, devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists diagnose and treat clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues and the allied conditions of connective tissues.

Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving medical specialty, with advancements owing largely to new scientific discoveries about the immunology of these disorders. Because the characteristics of rheumatological disorders are best explained by immunology, the pathogenesis of every major rheumatological disorder is now described in terms of an autoimmune disease. Many new treatment modalities are also based on clinical research in immunology.
