Dr. Luis J. Catoggio

ISN Medical Advisory Board


I am Luis Catoggio and I trained as a Physician in Argentina. I completed my Medical Residency at the Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires.

After finishing my year as Chief Resident, I trained in Rheumatology as a Research Fellow and Honorary Registrar at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath, UK. It was during this time that I became interested in scleroderma and autoantibodies while working with Dr. Peter J. Maddison.

Upon completing my Fellowship, I returned to Argentina and the Hospital Italiano where I head the Rheumatology Section of the Medical Services.

Our group consists of three full time Consultants, two Fellows in training (we are one of the Academic Training Units recognised by the Buenos Aires Medical School, University of Buenos Aires) and visiting residents. One of our special interests are the Connective Tissue diseases including Scleroderma. We see around 6,000 outpatient visits yearly, reflecting a wide spectrum of rheumatic diseases.
