Summary

In recent years, multimorbidity in rheumatic conditions has gained increasing attention. Rheumatologist care for an aging patient population with multiple diseases, therefore multimorbidity is the rule, not the exception. Owing to the high prevalence and the potential interaction of coexisting diseases, multimorbidity needs to be taken into account when treating patients with chronic inflammatory conditions. In this review we address the most prevalent comorbidities in patients with rheumatic conditions and their impact on important outcomes, such as physical function, quality of life, and mortality.
