ARTROPATIA SERONEGATIVA PDF

These diseases can be grouped based on common clinical and imaging features such as inflammatory back pain, sacroiliitis, spondylitis, and enthesitis. Laboratory studies, with the exception of the strong association with the genetically determined human leukocyte antigen B27 HLA-B27 , are generally nonspecific, with elevated inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate sometimes present. Clinical features may allow some differentiation such as urethritis in Reiter syndrome or reactive spondyloarthropathy , but there remains significant overlap. The term seronegative spondyloarthropathies was coined to indicate that rheumatoid factor was not present in these patients, with the individual forms of the disease including ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis formerly known as Reiter syndrome , arthritis related to inflammatory bowel disease, and a form of juvenile idiopathic arthritis distinguished only by the age of the patient.

Seronegative spondyloarthritides, also known as spondyloarthropathies SpA , are a group of musculoskeletal syndromes linked by common clinical features and immunopathologic mechanisms. The subtypes of spondyloarthritis are usually distinguished on the basis of history and clinical findings. The diagnostic criteria for spondyloarthritides have evolved in step with the changing understanding of the disease process. In particular, there is growing recognition that early forms of disease precede the typical changes on plain radiography.

They propose using the term spondyloarthritis to refer to all spondyloarthropathies, with the following distinctions:. Extra-axial involvement such as uveitis, calcaneal enthesitis, or peripheral arthritis occurs in all five subtypes, albeit with different frequencies.

However, a small proportion of patients may have serum RF detected. Most patients test positive for the protein product of the HLAB27 gene. Imaging does not play a major role in differentiating between the subtypes as imaging features are similar, especially in early disease. Exceptions to this rule are:. Also, spondylitis with bone marrow edema of the entire vertebra occurs more frequently in psoriatic arthritis.

All forms of spondyloarthritis may ultimately develop into ankylosing spondylitis in patients with longstanding disease 3.

Spondyloarthropathy

Gastroenterology and Hepatology is the first journal to cover the latest advances in pathology of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, and bile ducts, making it an indispensable tool for gastroenterologists, hepatologists, internists and general practitioners. In addition to the rigorously selected, systematically peer-reviewed manuscripts published in the research sections Original Articles, Scientific Letters, Editorials, and Letters to the Editor , the journal also contains other important sections, such as Review Articles and Clinical Decision-Making Support, which offer in-depth reviews and updates on issues relating to the specialty. The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two receding years. CiteScore measures average citations received per document published. Read more.

Spondyloarthropathy or spondyloarthrosis refers to any joint disease of the vertebral column. As such, it is a class or category of diseases rather than a single, specific entity. It differs from spondylopathy , which is a disease of the vertebra itself. However, many conditions involve both spondylopathy and spondyloarthropathy. Spondyloarthropathy with inflammation is called axial spondyloarthritis. Enthesopathy is also sometimes present in association with seronegative spondarthritides [ clarify ]. Non-vertebral signs and symptoms of degenerative or other not-directly-infected inflammation, in the manner of spondyloarthropathies, include asymmetric peripheral arthritis which is distinct from rheumatoid arthritis , arthritis of the toe interphalangeal joints, sausage digits , Achilles tendinitis , plantar fasciitis , costochondritis , iritis , and mucocutaneous lesions.
