Autoinflammatory diseases/syndromes are a new group of heterogeneous diseases characterized by “spontaneous onset of inflammation with no evidence of infection, autoimmunity or allergy and occur due to a defect in the innate immune system.” With the advancement of molecular genetics and next-generation sequencing technologies, new diseases are being added to this list every year. In this review, a brief description of a few autoinflammatory diseases would be provided along with a clinical approach. Salient clinical features have been highlighted.
