Answer

Depending on the clinical manifestations of the disease and the degree of damage to individual organ systems, additional specialists may be consulted, such as the following:

  • Orthopedic or neurologic surgeon (for management of inflammatory disturbances of vertebrae and spinal disks)

  • Cardiothoracic surgeon (if endocarditis is suspected or documented)
