Welcome to the Emory University of Pediatrics Rheumatology & Immunology Division!

The Emory Department of Pediatrics Rheumatology and Immunology Division provides comprehensive care for children and adolescents with rheumatologic and inflammatory diseases and with congenital immune deficiency diseases. We serve as a vital resource to pediatricians who seek assistance in evaluation of a patient with undiagnosed multisystem diseases. We also engage clinical and basic research in childhood rheumatic diseases. Home of one of only three pediatric rheumatology centers in Georgia, we provide care through a multidisciplinary team. Each year we care for more than 2,000 children and adolescents. Our division activities include patient care and education, research and teaching.
