Children's and youth rheumatology
"Rheumatism is not just a disease of adulthood. Children and adolescents also suffer from various rheumatic diseases. They do not always express themselves in the same way as adults do.
In young children, for example, a regression in development (child no longer walks), an asymmetrical gait pattern, a gentle posture when supporting or avoiding hard food (child no longer bites the apple) can be a first indication of a rheumatic disease.
