General information

Inflammatory conditions are caused by an abnormal reaction of the immune system. Inflammatory conditions can affect most organs and tissues within the human body, notably the nervous system, the digestive system, the epidermis, and articulations. Inflammatory pathologies are classified in three categories: auto-inflammatory diseases, auto-immune diseases (systematic and localised), and inflammatory afflictions (inflammation of undetermined origin).

Inflammatory pathologies

Inflammatory pathologies are defined by an aggression to tissue caused by a deregulation of the immune system. These aggressions are usually provoked when infectious agents, like bacteria or viruses, attack substances or tissues that compose the organism. Visible signs of auto-inflammatory disease are usually fever, cutaneous eruptions, abdominal pain, and vision problems. Other complications can arise, such as kidney failure.

Autoimmune disorders

Autoimmune disorders affect more women than men. The deregulation of the provoked immune system manifests by a production of self-antibodies that attack healthy tissue of ones’ own organism. Autoimmune disorders can be specific or systematic to certain organs. Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and autoimmune bullous diseases or dermatoses are among these types of autoimmune disorders affecting different organs. In all cases, their appearance is linked to varying factors, including hereditary. Symptoms are variable depending on the typology and the affected organ. Diagnosis is done by searching for specific antibodies.
