|Autoimmune rheumatic disease (AIRD) is a collective term, which comprises a group of multisystem inflammatory autoimmune diseases, including connective tissue disease, chronic inflammatory arthritis, sarcoidosis and systemic vasculitis. Some AIRD are prevalent in the general population, and all can cause significant morbidity and reduced quality of life, with some increasing the risk of premature mortality, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a connective tissue disease that is more prevalent and severe in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples with high mortality rates. To ensure that management of AIRD can be optimised for all Australians, it is important that we understand the prevalence and potential phenotypic variations of AIRD across the Australian population. However, to date there have been few described cases of AIRD other than SLE in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. In this review, we summarise what is known about AIRD other than SLE in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, particularly with regards to prevalence, phenotype and disease outcomes, and highlight the current gaps in knowledge.
