There is a wide spectrum of conditions under the term of rheumatic and musculoskeletar disorders (RMD's), whose common feature and leading symptom is pain in the musculoskeletal system often accompanied by functional disability.

Such a symptomatic definition covers a wide variety of etiologically, pathogenetically as well as clinically different entities, some of which may not have their primary namifestation in the musculoskeletal system. The differential diagnosis is therefore often a challenge.
