  • Working with Rheumatologists to Manage irAEs
    By Laura C. Capelli, MD, MHS

    Caring for patients experiencing toxicities from treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) requires multidisciplinary input and coordination. Rheumatologists evaluate and treat patients experiencing a wide variety of immune-related adverse events (irAEs), including inflammatory arthritis, sicca syndrome, polymyalgia rheumatica, myositis, vasculitis, and scleroderma. It’s important for rheumatologists to know that these irAEs can vary significantly in their time of onset, severity, and treatment. Accurately diagnosing and treating rheumatic irAEs requires that providers obtain a tailored patient history and physical examination, since there are no definitive diagnostic laboratory tests for these complications.
