The concept of paediatric rheumatology clinics is relatively new to India. With the specialty still in its formative years, referrals are still delayed and children usually present after having visited multiple facilities. Our centre, which has been one of the «DQ»early birds«DQ» in setting up a paediatric rheumatology clinic in a tertiary hospital in Mumbai, reports on the spectrum of cases seen since its inception in 2003 and thereby provides a framework for those wanting to open such centres in India or for that matter in countries where paediatric rheumatology is coming of age.
