Spondyloarthropathies and Hidradenitis Suppurativa Comorbidity

What are spondyloarthropathies? Spondyloarthropathies are a family of long-term (chronic) diseases of joints. These diseases occur in children (juvenile spondyloarthropathies) and adults. They include ankylosing spondylitis , Reiter’s syndrome (reactive arthritis) , psoriatic arthritis , and joint problems linked to inflammatory bowel disease (enteropathic arthritis ). Spondyloarthropathies are sometimes called spondyloarthritis.

Although all spondyloarthropathies have different symptoms and outcomes, they are similar in that all of them:

Usually involve the attachments between your low back and the pelvis ( sacroiliac joint ). Affect areas around the joint where your ligaments and tendons attach to bone (enthesitis), such as at the knee , foot, or hip. It is important to recognize that the spondyloarthropathies are different from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in adults and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) in children.
