Nowadays, an increasing number of rheumatic diseases can be diagnosed with much more sensitive diagnostics. Due to improved and earlier therapy (so-called "window of opportunity"), remission or low disease activity can be achieved in many affected patients.
In young adulthood, patients often enjoy good health, complete vocational training and start a family.
However, some suffer from late effects of the disease or immunosuppressive therapy. On the other hand, reactivation of the underlying disease can occur even many years after successful treatment. Regular medical check-ups are therefore necessary in the long term. While care in childhood and adolescence is provided in the pediatric clinic, medical issues increasingly arise in young adulthood that fall within the scope of internal medicine.
In order to ensure the maintenance of remission or low disease activity during transition and to be able to adequately answer age- and disease-specific questions, we offer an interdisciplinary consultation hour of the Pediatric and Adolescent Clinic and the Medicine 3 - Rheumatology and Immunology.

In our interdisciplinary consultation hours we offer:

  • Planning and monitoring of interdisciplinary specialist care
  • Coordination and continuation of targeted diagnostics and therapy
  • Consultation regarding labor and social law issues
  • Offers of psychological counseling
  • Support and promotion of personal responsibility
Required documents
  • Certificate of Insurance (health insurance card)
  • Allocation
  • Copies of the preliminary findings
  • X-ray images
  • Reports from previous hospitalizations
