The management of spondyloarthritis should be based on the clinical presentation (e.g., axial involvement, enthesiopathy, peripheral arthritis, extra-articular symptoms) and not on a diagnosis of a specific disease belonging to the concept of spondyloarthritis (e.g., ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and arthritis related to inflammatory bowel disease).
