The National Centre for Paediatric Rheumatology was established at CHI at Crumlin in 2006 and cares for over 2,500-3000 children and adolescents with chronic inflammatory disorders in Ireland every year. It provides a daily ambulatory service, biweekly infusion clinics, joint injections and a busy day ward and active inpatient service. CHI at Temple St also provides a weekly Rheumatology clinic, day ward services and inpatient services.
Paediatric rheumatology is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory diseases and disorders that can affect the bones, muscles, joints, tendons and connective tissues.
