The EULAR PAED Community

Paediatric Rheumatology is a specialty concerned with the care and understanding of a wide spectrum of autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases affecting children and young people. 

These are characterised by systemic inflammation and inflammation within the musculoskeletal system, skin, blood vessels and diverse organs such as the eye, brain and visceral organs. 

Non-inflammatory musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction syndromes are an integral part of the scope of Paediatric Rheumatology.

The committee organises a range of high-quality activities and programmes for its community dedicated to advance the care and improve the health and well-being of children and young people with rheumatic conditions. 


Discover the EULAR PAED Community

  • The EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology
    The EULAR Paediatric Rheumatology sessions in the scientific programme at the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology attracts a broad community who use their acquired knowledge to educate and influence a wide range of stakeholders about rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) in children and young people.

    We encourage the submission of abstracts in paediatric rheumatology.

    Every year EULAR awards a number of bursaries to the presenting author for an abstract accepted for oral or poster presentation at the congress.
