Introduction of Allergy Immunology Rheumatology Department

 
The Allergy Immunology Rheumatology Department is a sub-specialty of internal medicine. The range of services includes: all kinds of allergies, immune problems, and rheumatic diseases. These diseases have varied manifestations, but the pathogenic mechanisms involved are all associated with immune disorders. The diagnosis of these diseases resulted from immune dysfunction is often not as intuitive as other diseases. The diagnosis and treatment of diseases are not only more complex, but also give people the impression that the diseases cannot be completely cured. However, due to immunological advancement in recent years, both the diagnosis and treatment of allergies and rheumatic diseases have made remarkable progress, and many immunomodulatory agents or biological agents have been launched in the market. Early diagnosis and treatment can put the diseases well under control. TheAllergy Immunology Rheumatology Department of Taipei Medical University - Shuang Ho Hospital provides inpatient and outpatient clinic services, as well as complete and all-rounded serology and bone joint and soft tissue ultrasound to patients with allergies and rheumatic diseases.
