Special Review: IgG4-RD
A Special Issue by Modern Rheumatology
In these backgrounds, special issues of Modern Rheumatology for IgG4-RD were planned. In this issue and another issue, as a coordinate editor, I invited authors who have played a central role in the development of the concept and researches of IgG4-RD. These special issues of IgG4-RD contain the research upfront such as genetics, cytokines, immune cells, innate immunity and autoantibody, and also clinical topics including recent advance of classification criteria, autoimmune pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, IgG4-related sialo/dacryoadenitis (Mikulicz’s disease), IgG4-related kidney disease, IgG4-related endocrine disease, IgG4-related lung disease, IgG4-related aortitis and retroperitoneal fibrosis.
