Autoimmune Disease List

This A-Z list and basic information about each recognized autoimmune disease were compiled and written by our dedicated research team at the Global Autoimmune Institute. The list provides a starting point in learning about autoimmune diseases and immune-mediated conditions, with links to other sources that we believe to be accurate and informative. This section will be updated periodically.
