This Autoinflammatory Search Database does not constitute medical advice or constitute an attempt to practice medicine. The use of the site does not establish a doctor-patient relationship. Individuals should consult a qualified health care provider for medical advice and answers to personal health questions.
While we have attempted to be as accurate as possible with this database, it should not be relied upon as being comprehensive or error-free. This database is under constant development and changes may be made to the content and information at any time.
This website and content is intended for educational purposes only, and to help improve awareness and encourage doctors to consider autoinflammatory diseases when caring for patients with these sorts of symptoms. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
This search feature is in “beta” mode. This means that this site is not finalized, and it is still being developed. The search system is undergoing testing and refinement. This search system in it’s early development phase may not bring up all possible diseases to consider, so it is essential to review and learn about these diseases from many sources. We have fully cited and referenced all findings in this database, and the content is still being reviewed and updated by medical professionals. It is possible that this database may still contain errors, inaccuracies, omissions, or other things that need improvement.
Please do NOT use the information or your search results from this database as your sole resource to make a diagnosis of a patient.
Even if the resulting search of the medical terms and symptoms you have entered offers a single disease, or a short list of diseases, there are many other diseases to consider that are not in this database that may resemble autoinflammatory diseases. Also, not all autoinflammatory diseases have been identified or classified at this time. In addition, some immunodeficiencies, or other diseases that are not the focus of this database need to be considered, such as cyclic neutropenia, which presents with periodic fevers, and many other conditions.
Genetic testing is another helpful tool for clinicians, but a positive or negative genetic test result on it’s own cannot constitute a diagnosis, or understanding of the severity or systemic involvement of a condition in a patient. We do encourage doctors to consider genetic testing, but to rely on their medical examination and use of reliable diagnostic labs and tests to further determine the cause of the patient’s symptoms.
Not all symptoms are in our database-we have tried to list distinguishing symptoms, based on medical literature, but many patients may not have all of the listed symptoms for a disease, or may present differently.
There are variant presentations for many of these diseases that are not featured in this database.
Research and understanding of these diseases is ongoing-new findings are being reported all the time.
Symptoms may be inaccurately described by the patient, may not be present, or may not be reported.
Not all diseases are in our database. This is merely a tool, and to help educate and encourage doctors to consider autoinflammatory diseases in patients that present with certain symptoms.
Patients can have more than one condition. Multiple health conditions may be causing the symptoms.
A combination of other diseases, side effects, interactions, or other causes may be causing symptoms.
Drug interactions, or other interactions such as: herb-drug, food-drug or food-food interactions
Side effects of prescription drugs, herbs, foods, natural remedies, etc., may be causing symptoms.
