I am a pediatric and adult rheumatologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Shortly after starting my rheumatology fellowship, I was asked to write a review article for a medical journal about autoinflammatory diseases in pediatrics.  After several months of research, I developed a deep understanding of these complex disorders, and eventually co-authored a good review for pediatricians.

My interest in autoinflammatory diseases grew throughout my fellowship after seeing and diagnosing several pediatric and adult patients with autoinflammatory diseases.  I also conducted research about patients with autoinflammatory diseases within the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) registry, which I presented  at the 7th Congress of the International Society of Systemic Autoinflammatory Diseases (ISSAID), and at the 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology.

I helped to create the Autoinflammatory Diseases Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a specialized center to diagnose and treat adults with known or suspected autoinflammatory diseases.  I also recently helped to establish the Autoinflammatory Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital.

In addition to rheumatology, I have an interest in medical education.  For the last ten years, I have been dedicated to teaching medical students, residents, physicians, patients, and families about various medical topics.  This year, I am participating in the Rabkin Fellowship for Medical Education.  I am developing AskUp, an evidence-based, educational tool to help learners remember material they learn in class, at home, or in the hospital.

I created this blog to bring awareness to, and uncover the mystery of,  autoinflammatory and other rheumatic diseases. The material found here may be relevant to patients, students, physicians, nurses, and other health professionals.

  1. Dr. Hausmann, I have just completed reading your article ” Not all joint pain is arthritis” and it is an excellent publication, very informative. I have a question: is it possible to have psoriatic arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Pain amplification syndrome all at the same time? I was diagnosed with psoriasis when I was in my early thirties and then years latter with psoriatic arthritis. There is no indication of psoriasis on either side of my parents and am the only one of my siblings to have developed this condition. 10 years ago, due to loss of cartilage my left hip was replaced, it was bone on bone and very painful. Recently I have began to experience the same pain in my right hip. I am also experiencing pain in the joints of both hands and spine. This pain is constant from morning to night and it affects my sleep. No problem going to sleep but I awaken anywhere from 2am-5am in pain and unable to return to sleep. My rheumatologist ordered an MRI of my left hand and there is not evidence of swelling or joint damage…thank goodness, but sure enough the pain is there as well as in the rest of my body and It is so very frustrating looking for answers as to why my body is screaming at me but also seems it does not want me to discover the cause of the screams, LOL. I am on medications for both the psoriatic arthritis and the pain which mostly help but some day’s the pain seems to win out. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.
