The Pediatric Rheumatology Division offers expert evaluation, counseling, and treatment of rheumatic diseases found in children, which include the many forms of child arthritis, such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis, formerly known as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. We also care for children with lupus, juvenile dermatomyositis, morphea/scleroderma, vasculitis, and a number of other conditions.
Clinical services are offered at Children's Medical Center Dallas and at Scottish Rite for Children’s Arthritis Clinic, which is one of the longest-established pediatric rheumatology clinics in the country and the major referral center for North Texas.
