CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISORDERS

Written by

A group of generalised inflammatory diseases that affect CONNECTIVE TISSUE in almost any system in the body. The term does not include those disorders of genetic origin. RHEUMATIC FEVER and RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS were traditionally classified in this group, as were those diseases classed under the outdated heading COLLAGEN DISEASES.
