The Role of Pediatric Rheumatologists in Autoimmune Brain Disease.
The spectrum of autoimmune and inflammatory brain diseases continues to evolve with medical advances facilitating both the detection of inflammation of the central nervous system and the discovery of novel disease mechanisms. The clinical overlap of these disorders with primary rheumatic diseases and the efficacy of immunotherapy have led to strong partnerships between pediatric rheumatologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and other providers in the care of children with these conditions. Early diagnosis and initiation of targeted therapy improve clinical outcomes, highlighting the importance of interdisciplinary collaborative care.
