Connective Tissue Autoimmune Disorders at DRHC Dubai

Connective tissue autoimmune disorders are a group of conditions that affect the body's connective tissues, which provide support and structure to various organs and systems. These disorders occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's own tissues, leading to inflammation and damage. At Dr. Rami Hamed Medical Center, Dubai, our team of expert rheumatologists specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of connective tissue autoimmune disorders. We are committed to providing our patients with personalized care and effective treatment options to help them manage their condition and improve their quality of life.

Common connective tissue autoimmune disorders include:

  1. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): RA is a chronic inflammatory condition that primarily affects the joints, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness. It can also affect other organs, such as the heart, lungs, and eyes.

  2. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE): SLE is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect multiple organs, including the skin, joints, kidneys, and brain. It is characterized by periods of flare-ups and remissions.

  3. Sjögren's Syndrome: Sjögren's syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the glands that produce tears and saliva, leading to dry eyes and mouth. It can also affect other organs, such as the joints, skin, and lungs.

  4. Systemic Sclerosis (Scleroderma): Systemic sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the skin and internal organs, causing thickening and hardening of the skin and scarring of the internal organs.

  5. Inflammatory Myopathy: Inflammatory Myopathy is a group of autoimmune diseases that cause inflammation and weakness in the muscles. It can also affect other organs, such as the skin, joints, and lungs.

  6. Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS): APS is an autoimmune disorder that can cause blood clots to form in the arteries and veins, leading to complications such as stroke, heart attack, and deep vein thrombosis.
