Spondyloarthritis

Spondyloarthritis (or spondyloarthropathy) is the name for a family of inflammatory rheumatic diseases that cause arthritis. The most common is ankylosing spondylitis, which affects mainly the spine. Others include:
– axial spondyloarthritis, which affects mainly the spine and pelvic joints;
– peripheral spondyloarthritis, affecting mostly the arms and legs;
– reactive arthritis (formerly known as Reiter’s syndrome);
– psoriatic arthritis; and
– enteropathic arthritis/spondylitis associated with inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease).

Fast Facts
– The main symptom (what you feel) in most patients is low back pain. This occurs most often in axial spondyloarthritis.
– In a minority of patients, the major symptom is pain and swelling in the arms and legs. This type is known as peripheral spondyloarthritis.
– Many people with axial spondyloarthritis progress to having some degree of spinal fusion, known as ankylosing spondylitis. This more often strikes young males.
– Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (commonly called NSAIDs) offer symptom relief for most patients by reducing pain and swelling. Other medicines called anti-TNF drugs or TNF blockers are effective in patients who do not respond enough to NSAIDs.
– Frequent fitness activities and back exercises are helpful.

Spondyloarthritis differs from other types of arthritis in that it involves the “entheses.” These sites are where ligaments and tendons attach to bones. Symptoms present in two main ways. The first is inflammation causing pain and stiffness, most often of the spine. Some forms can affect the hands and feet or arms and legs. The second type is bone destruction causing deformities of the spine and poor function of the shoulders and hips.

Ankylosing spondylitis is hereditary. Many genes can cause it. Up to 30 of these genes have been found. The major gene that causes this disease is HLA-B27. Almost all white people with ankylosing spondylitis are carriers of HLA-B27. The cause of enteropathic arthritis is unclear. It may be due to bacteria that enter the bowel when inflammation damages it. People with HLA-B27 are more likely to have this form of arthritis than those without the gene. Discussions of the causes and risk factors for other members of the spondyloarthritis family appear in their own fact sheets.
