Abstract

Autoinflammatory diseases (AID) are inherited errors of innate immunity which, although individually uncommon, collectively set up an emerging chapter of medicine. Careful analysis and identification of AID is essential to prompt effective treatment and improve survival and quality of life in these patients. Research into pediatric AID is lagging behind studies in adults, though a better understanding of AID in infancy could lead to improved diagnostic protocols and reduce long-term disability. This review provides a detailed summary of monogenic AID in childhood to help pediatricians correctly recognize these conditions and also highlight recent developments in the laboratory diagnostic work-up.
