ankylosing spondylitis

; AS autoimmune disease of young men of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) B27 tissue type, characterized by high titres of tumour necrosis factor, progressive spondyloarthropathy, inflammatory back pain, limited spinal mobility, limited chest expansion and sacroiliitis; typically presenting with bursitis, buttock and heel pain, marked early-stage systemic fatigue, late-stage increased spinal curvature and spinal ankylosis ('bamboo' spine); foot problems (e.g. pain, plantar and posterior heel spur formation, soft-tissue swelling and bursitis) occur in the earlier stages; late-stage foot symptoms include joint erosions, periosteal proliferation and anklyosis due to joint margin exostoses (Table 1)
Table 1: Common features of the range of types of sero-negative inflammatory arthritis
FeatureComment
Leukocyte antigen type90% of patients with sero-negative arthritis test positive for human leukocyte antigen (HLA) B27
Skeletal involvementAxial skeleton/spinal involvement; with back pain (common presenting first symptom)
EnthesopathyInflammation at insertions of ligaments/tendons (posterior calcaneum, plantar calcaneum, base of fifth metatarsal, forefoot)
Soft-tissue swellingsLocalized swelling at Achilles tendon insertion
Bursitis of congenital/adventitious bursae
SynovitisDactylitis/'sausage' toe
Generalized swelling of fore foot
VasculitisNote: Does not tend to affect foot in sero-negative arthritides
RadiographsBone/periosteal fluffy/'whiskery' proliferation
