Inflammatory joint diseases are conditions that have an underlying inflammatory component that may be driven by a faulty autoimmune response by the body, often resulting in the body’s tissues being attacked by the body’s own immune responses. This chapter covers a range of inflammatory joint diseases, which both target specific joints and/or surrounding tissues and have a genetic predisposition. For each condition, it covers methods of diagnosis, clinical features, methods of assessment and treatment, management, and frequently asked questions when presented with a patient experiencing the condition.
