Objectives: Patients affected by autoinflammatory diseases were assisted by telephonic consultations guaranteed by the paediatricians of free choice and by the paediatric rheumatologists.

Abstract

Introduction: The last time was signed by the pandemic diffusion of COVID-19, with an emergency area COVID-19 dedicated and the need to minimize the inflow of children and adolescents affected by chronic diseases into the hospitals. Otherwise, paediatricians had to limit visits and to consider a new setting for febrile children. Objectives: Patients affected by autoinflammatory diseases were assisted by telephonic consultations guaranteed by the paediatricians of free choice and by the paediatric rheumatologists. However, the patients frequently needed a direct clinical approach and a specialistic evaluation in the case of flares and/or abnormal laboratory parameters and adverse reactions to drugs. Another frequent question was the differential diagnosis of febrile episodes, to distinguish a recurrent fever, linked to autoinflammation, from an infectious disease.
