Autoimmune Diseases

List of Autoimmune Diseases and Autoimmune-Related Diseases

There is continuing debate about when a disease should be considered autoimmune. In spite of that, on this webpage you’ll find an overview on autoimmune and autoimmunity-related disorders in alphabetical order.

The overview lists the names in medical and in colloquial usage, the synonyms and abbreviations. As a matter of course this is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness.

This glossary is under continual construction, hence it is fragmentary; – updated: 20/08/2012.
