New Insights into Autoinflammatory Diseases From South America

The concept of autoinflammatory disease was only recognized by the medical field 20 years ago. Now, around 60 genes have been identified that lead to related inborn errors of immunity.

Although autoinflammatory diseases have gained relevance in the medical literature data through clinical, basic, and translational research, most published research comes from high-income countries.

Research from middle-income countries, such as those in South America, is needed to help us understand the manifestations and prevalence of these conditions in a variety of social, economic, and geographic contexts.

This Article Collection will highlight research on autoinflammatory diseases from researchers in South America and in South American populations. We welcome original research, reviews, symposium reports, expert opinions, and commentaries.

Topics of interest include:

  • Genomic findings related to autoinflammatory diseases
  • Genotype/phenotype manifestations of autoinflammatory diseases
  • Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions in autoinflammatory diseases
  • Epidemiological data on autoinflammatory diseases
  • Environmental factors contributing to autoinflammatory diseases
