Abstract. Acute rheumatic fever is a multiorgan inflammatory disorder affecting the heart, joints, brain, and skin. The pathogenic mechanism of molecular mimicry involves autoantibodies and T cells directed against group A streptococcal cell wall components and heart or brain antigens that have been extensively investigated.

These genetic associations are important to note as they are involved in inflammatory and immune responses against the streptococcus, and potentially predispose those who possess them to rheumatic heart disease.

Autoimmune Diseases: Acute and Complex Situations addresses the latest clinical and immunological prognostic factors that may help to identify patients at higher risk of developing potentially life-threatening involvement. This book comprehensively helps the reader to diagnose these patients, in whom an early therapeutic approach is essential. This book discusses the role of the microbiome in rheumatic diseases and details its implications for patient treatment. Recently, with technological advances, there has been significant research into the microbiome. This has enabled us to more profoundly understand its role in our immune system maturation as well as the role played by microorganisms in autoimmunity. Overview. The Department of Rheumatic and Immunologic Diseases is one of the largest and ranked as one of the nation's top in the country. We are a leader in evaluating and treating patients with an array of conditions that affect the bones, muscles, joints and skin such arthritis, vasculitis, lupus, gout, metabolic bone diseases and other conditions. They are sometimes referred to as rheumatic diseases, connective tissue disorders, or collagen vascular disorders. Some of the features of autoimmune disorders in adults differ from the features of the same disorders in children. 3. Immune deficiency disorders, excluding HIV infection.
