Pediatric Rheumatology Society Welcomes you to NCPR - 2017

Welcome to the official website of the Annual conference of the Pediatric Rheumatology Society, the erstwhile Rheumatology Chapter of Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP).

Pediatric rheumatology as a sub-specialty is less than seven decades old. It deals with conditions like Juvenile arthritis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Juvenile dermatomyositis, Juvenile scleroderma and a host of other conditions.

The origin of The Pediatric Rheumatology society of India is much more recent . It is less than two decades old. It started with handful members but has been growing from strength to strength. A conference of the society is being organized on a yearly basis where all the members meet to discuss and appraise themselves of the recent developments in the field. Similar to previous years, noted international and national faculty will be taking part in the deliberations of the national conference.

As part of the annual conference an opportunity is given to young and upcoming pediatric rheumatologists and pediatricians to showcase their expertise as well as their work in the field. In addition many topics which are chosen as part of the proceedings are geared towards updating our pediatric brethren (specifically post graduates)towards understanding of pediatric rheumatology.

We look forward to see you at Kolkata, NCPR 2017
