Association Between Improvement in Enthesopathy and Quality of Life: Results from a Phase 3 Trial in Psoriatic Arthritis (Presentation 692)
In this report, we present a patient with unilateral sacroiliac joint involvement and adductor enthesopathy following an upper respiratory tract infection who was eventually diagnosed with PSReA.
48,49) Pathology can range from enthesopathy of the adductor tendon to frank avulsion of the tendon origin, although acute avulsion of the adductor longus enthesis is rare.
Less likely differential considerations include focal septic arthritis, calcific tendinitis with intraosseous penetration, gout, and seronegative spondyloarthropathic enthesopathy.
PsA, however, is more likely to be asymmetric and to present with enthesopathy (inflammation of tendons at their insertion sites that can often cause confusion with fibromyalgia), dactylitis (inflammation of a digit), and iritis (inflammation in the iris of the eye).
The patient had no enthesopathy, aft, or dermal lesion, and her family history had no spondyloarthropathy (SpA).
Furthermore, synovitis of lower extremities with inflammatory back pain or inflammatory bowel disease and/or psoriasis, migratuar gluteal pain, enthesopathy, and positive family history were in favor of seronegative spondyloarthropathies (15).
In fact, about 80% were found to have nonaxial clinical manifestations, including articular peripheral involvement, enthesopathy, dactylitis, anterior chest wall pain, uveitis, or psoriasis.
Young patients present with disproportionate short stature and classical features of rickets (2-4) whereas adults present with bone pains, proximal myopathy and enthesopathy.
In the IMPACT and IMPACT 2 trials, patients treated with REMICADE saw significant improvements in standard measures of disease activity; including number of swollen joints, number of painful and/or tender joints, dactylitis (finger or toe inflammation) and enthesopathy (inflammation involving the attachment of a tendon or ligament to bone.
It was developed as a composite index consisting of an evaluation on a 10-point Visual Analogue Scale of fatigue, axial pain, peripheral pain, morning stiffness, discomfort, and enthesopathy.
