About Relapsing Polychondritis Uk

Charity number: 1170936

Relapsing Polychondritis (RP) is thought to be an autoimmune disease. The body?s immune system attacks its own cartilage and organs containing tissue similar to cartilage. Joints may become painful, swollen and stiff. The outer ear may become red, painful and deformed. Inflammation of the inner ear may result in nausea, hearing difficulties and loss of balance. The eyes may be affected, and vision may be impaired. Airways may become inflamed and/or collapse leading to coughing and/or breathing difficulties. The heart, blood vessels, liver and kidneys may be affected. Some patients develop skin rashes and/or nerve pain. RP is life limiting and can be life threatening. Fortunately, It is a rare disease. But this means that it is difficult to diagnose and is not well understood.
