Rheumatic diseases are a group of disorders of the joints and soft tissues, causing pain and, in many cases, physical disability. While they affect people of all ages, their impact can be especially profound in children. Collectively, they are among the most common and chronic conditions of childhood. Although we have much to learn about the causes, risk factors, treatment and prevention of these diseases in children, important information already exists.

"There are unique challenges that the rheumatic diseases present in children," says NIAMS Director Stephen I. Katz, M.D., Ph.D. "The CD-ROM will provide doctors, as well as nurses and other health professionals, with a wide range of resources and information to help them better understand these diseases and how to manage them."

Resources on this CD-ROM include:

  • A collection of print-friendly PDF files of selected patient education brochures Professional education resources, including information from the Arthritis Foundation's Primer on the Rheumatic Diseases (12th edition)
  • Professional educational resources on osteogenesis imperfecta from the NIH Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases National Resource Center
