Özet

Autoinflammatory diseases are characterised by seemingly unprovoked inflammation. They can be categorised as: hereditary (monogenic) autoinflammatory diseases, complex (polygenic/multifactorial) autoinflammatory diseases, and diseases where the course is affected by mutations in the defined autoinflammatory disease genes. Identification of the inflammatory pathways involved has opened up new areas of research which have implications for the treatment of these disorders and the pathogenesis of common inflammatory diseases.
