Rheumatology is the medical speciality dealing with disorders of the joints and connective tissues such as arthritisbursitis and capsulitis.  

As it is now understood that many of these diseases are caused by autoimmune conditions, the speciality now overlaps with the newer speciality of immunology in the treatment of whole body autoimmune conditions, while immunology alone covers allergic reactions and immunodeficiency.
