What are "spondyloarthropathies", the diseases that affect the limbs, the early signs

Spondylarthritis or inflammatory spondylarthropatitis is a group of diseases that have some common features such as clinical manifestations and laboratory tests. Usually, these illnesses affect the young age of 20-40 years of age and genetic predisposition.

Typical signs of the onset of the disease are those of touching the vertebral column, like morning pain in the morning, which is accompanied by a solidification lasting over half an hour (30 minutes).

Pain and hardness improve with the movements of the patient (he feels better in movement) and get worse in silence. In addition to the vertebral column, peripheral wrists, such as the knees and shoulders, are sometimes affected. This disease can also affect organs such as the skin, the heart, and the gastrointestinal system with diarrhea.

The common feature for the whole group mentioned above is the antigen called HLA - B27 found in almost all the analyzes taken in these patients. This is a genetic indicator for this is why these diseases are more common within a family.

Which diseases are included in this group?

  1. Ankylosing spondylitis
It is an inflammatory disease, which begins with the sacroiliac key (in the pelvic part). Also can be affected the maxilla, shoulders and knees. This pathology is 3 times more common in men than in women. Its diagnosis is based on the history of the disease, in clinical examination and is confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging. The ankylosing spondylitis treatment aims to stop the progression of the disease, but alternating it with physiotherapy, which helps strengthen the muskratura.

  1. Psychotic Arthritis
Psoriasis is a skin disease. This illness is characterized by some red tablets covered with white scales, which are commonly found in the elbows, knees and the most hairy part of the head. In 23% of psoriasis sufferers, arthritis is called psoriatic arthritis. The most common form of this arthritis is the touch of two to three key, swelling, pain and redness. But also in this case we have other forms, which affect more key and is called psoriatic ploiartri.

  1. Reactive Arthritis
This arthritis is most commonly associated with inflammatory diseases, occurring at age 20-40, and is always associated with an earlier infection (3-4 weeks ago). After passing this infection to the sick person (with HLA - B27 positive) arthritis. Therefore it is called Reactive Arthritis and affects knees and ankles, about 50% of the patients have spinal cord touches. This includes Reiter syndrome, with three clinical signs that are arthritis, urethra, and eye contact (conjunctivitis). Reactive arthritis has good performance and for several months (6-12 months) can disappear without permanent damage.

  1. Enteropathic Arthritis
The term "enteropathic arthritis" is mainly used when it comes to inflammatory bowel disease such as "ulcerative colitis", a touch screen display. Arthritis in this case is similar and has the characteristics of the arthritis described above, with the touch of the joints and the vertebral column. Arthritis does not depend on the progression of bowel diseases. While the treatment is mainly the medication used for bowel diseases.
