Autoinflammatory diseases , or systemic autoinflammatory diseases SAIDs , also called periodic fever syndromes, are recently classified rheumatic and inflammatory conditions. Most disorders are hereditary periodic fever syndromes, and some are polygenic or genetically complex diseases. SAIDs are distinct from systemic autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.
This group of disorders is rapidly expanding in the field of rheumatology. Proper diagnosis and management of these diseases require expertise and clinical experience as they can be complex and challenging for physicians, and patients often struggle to find specialized care for these conditions.
For the purpose of providing specialized service, high quality of care and help for those who need such special care, we have created the Center of Autoinflammatory Diseases at Stony Brook University Hospital SBU. The Center is part of the Department of Medicine and one of the few Centers in the United States to offer expert knowledge and management of these disorders, supported by multidisciplinary care and groundbreaking research.
Molecular genetic analysis is often involved in the diagnosis of the diseases. Since ing SBU, Dr. Yao has received numerous patient referrals from across the US and Canada due to his expertise and reputation in the field. He has expertise in care and study of autoinflammatory diseases. He also specializes in idiopathic pericarditis. Ozbek has experience in care of patient with FMF when she served as a physician in Turkey.
The Center consists of multidisciplinary collaborators who have subspecialty interests in this group of diseases:. Gastrointestinal symptoms are common in SAIDs. These experts will provide prompt specialized care for those in need of such care. Rash is a frequent or symptom of SAID patients. Our goals are to provide excellent patient care for those who are in such special needs, to perform advanced study of the diseases, and to identify effective treatment or cure.
Our research of these diseases is broad, including Yao syndrome. A diagnosis of the syndrome is made based upon such clinical presentations and genetic testing for NOD2 variants. These patients often experienced duplication of unnecessary testing. Our published translational study are encouraging Autoimmunity. We hope that future funding, including philanthropic donations will be able to move our exciting research to a higher level. For those who are willing to help advance our missions and make a difference, please visit the website for making donations.
