Appendicular Arthritis - Musculoskeletal Radiology

Even though over 90 different rheumatic diseases are recognized by the American College of Rheumatology, only three entities are commonly seen in most clinical radiology practices, even including those located in large tertiary medical centers. Osteoarthritis (a.k.a. degenerative joint disease) is the most commonly seen form of appendicular arthritis. The other two commonly seen arthropathies are rheumatoid arthritis and calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) deposition disease. Less common arthropathies that may manifest radiographic findings in the appendicular skeleton include septic arthritis, and gout. Most other appendicular arthropathies are seen only rarely.

Distinguishing Rheumatologic Diseases on Plain Radiography Medscape

Arthritic joint pains are common presenting complaints that can be difficult to distinguish from history and physical examination findings alone. Plain radiographs are extremely valuable to help differentiate between the many forms of arthritis. Classic radiographic findings in the extremities for osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, and pseudogout will be discussed.

Enteropathic arthropathy is an umbrella term used to describe various patterns of inflammatory arthritis that may be associated with a range of gastrointestinal pathologies. Its constituent conditions are classified as part of the seronegative spondylarthropathies.

Radiographic Evaluation of Arthritis

Radiographic Evaluation of Arthritis: In the presence of joint space narrowing, it is important to differentiate inflammatory from degenerative conditions. The presence of osteophytes, bone sclerosis, and subchondral cysts and the absence of inflammatory features such as erosions suggest osteoarthritis. Typical osteoarthritis involves specific joints at a particular patient age. When osteoarthritis involves an atypical joint, occurs at an early age, or has an unusual radiographic appearance, then other causes for cartilage destruction should be considered, such as trauma, crystal deposition, neuropathic joint, and hemophilia. There are several types of arthritis, such as juvenile chronic arthritis and gouty arthritis, that may have a variable appearance compared with that of other common inflammatory arthritides.

Validity of enthesis ultrasound assessment in spondyloarthropathy

OBJECTIVES: To develop an ultrasound enthesis score and to assess its validity in the diagnostic classification of the spondyloarthropathies (SpAs).
CONCLUSION: The findings suggest that the ultrasound enthesis score could be a valid tool in the diagnosis of SpA.
