Pediatric Rheumatology Services

Joint Pain Or Arthritis

Common symptoms are fevers, rashes, joint swellings, early morning stiffness, raised inflammatory markers on blood tests.

Autoimmune Diseases

Common symptoms are frequent mouth or genital ulcers, excessive hairfall, rashes on the face and body, fingers or toes turning blue in cold, muscle weakness, joint swellings, tight shiny areas of skin, abdominal pains, blood in stools or red eyes.

Persisting Fever

Pyrexia of unknown origin (prolonged fevers) often needs inputs from the rheumatologist to look for inflammatory causes of fevers. Other causes such as genetic Systemic Autoinflammatory Diseases(SAID) for recurrent fevers and Primary immunodeficiency (PID) also needs to be kept in the differential diagnosis of a child with multiple fever episodes with infections since an early age.

Intraarticular Injection

Dr. Sanjib Mondal is skilled in performing intraarticular injections, which involve the injection of medication directly into a joint. This technique can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis and joint pain, by reducing inflammation and pain in the affected area.

Echocardiography for coronary assessment in Kawasaki disease

Dr. Sanjib Mondal is also skilled in performing echocardiography, a non-invasive imaging technique that uses sound waves to create images of the heart. This technique is particularly useful for assessing the coronary arteries in children with Kawasaki disease, a condition that can cause inflammation of the blood vessels and lead to heart problems. By using echocardiography, Dr. Mondal can assess the health of the coronary arteries and detect any potential complications early on, allowing for prompt treatment and management.
