  • gout
  • Dactylitis, or "sausage digit", a diffuse swelling of a solitary finger or toe, is a distinctive feature of reactive arthritis and other peripheral spondylarthritides but can also be seen in polyarticular gout and sarcoidosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • Green, black, oolong and white teas are loaded with polyphenols, plant-derived compounds that rev up the immune system and may protect against certain diseases, including arthritis. (arthritis.org)
  • We are committed to eliminating the adversity caused by autoimmune arthritis by uniting resources that will raise global awareness, providing wellness education and support, and conducting patient-centered research that will improve the quality of life for those affected by these diseases.

  • just as a sore throat may have its origin in a variety of diseases, so joint inflammation and arthritis are associated with many different illnesses. (apma.org)
  • Arthritis is a frequent component of complex diseases that may involve more than 100 identifiable disorders. (apma.org)
  • Exercise and self-management programs are effective in reducing the pain and disability associated with arthritis and related diseases. (tn.gov)
  • bone
  • One or more of these imaging tests may be recommended to detect erosions (bone damage due to arthritis), fractures, calcium deposits, or changes in the shape of a joint. (uptodate.com)
  • Arthritis mutilans presents in about 5-16% of psoriatic arthritis cases, involves osteolysis of the DIP and PIP joints, and can include bone edema, bone erosions, and new bone growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • MRI bone edema scores are high in arthritis mutilans and correlate with radiographic measures of joint damage, although they may not correlate with disease activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • The bone edema in arthitis mutilans can be treated with TNF inhibitors in the short term: a 2007 study found that the bone edema associated with psoriatic arthritis (of which arthitis mutilans is a subtype) responded to TNF inhibitors with "dramatic" improvement, but the study was not determinative of whether TNF inhibitors would prevent new bone formation, bone fusion, or osteolysis (bone resorption).

  • occurs
  • Ocular involvement (mild bilateral conjunctivitis) occurs in about 50% of men with urogenital reactive arthritis syndrome and about 75% of men with enteric reactive arthritis syndrome. (wikipedia.org)

  • The exact causes are not yet known, but a number of genetic associations have been identified in a genome-wide association study of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis including HLA-B27 . (wikipedia.org)

  • Patients with HIV have an increased risk of developing reactive arthritis as well. (wikipedia.org)
  • Arthritis Research UK is working to help them to remain active by funding research, campaigning and providing information for patients, the public and health professionals. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • In psoriatic arthritis, pain can occur in the area of the sacrum (the lower back, above the tailbone), as a result of sacroiliitis or spondylitis , which is present in 40% of cases. (wikipedia.org)
