We report a rare case of sacroileitis in a teenager due to Streptobacillus moniliformis bacteremia, identified by matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization -time of flight (MALDI-TOF). We discuss the challenges of making this diagnosis and review the literature on rat bite fever.

Gut microflora and dysbiosis as an environmental factor has been linked to the pathogenesis of enthesitis-related arthritis (JIA-ERA); thus, we performed a proof-of-concept study of probiotics to modulate the gut-flora and study the effects on immune and clinical parameters of children having JIA-ERA. Forty-six children with active JIA-ERA were randomized to placebo or probiotic therapy along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for 12 weeks. Patients were assessed using a six-point composite disease activity index (mJSpADA) based on morning stiffness, joint count, enthesitis count, sacroiliitis/inflammatory back pain, uveitis and erythrocyte sedimentation rate/C-reactive protein (ESR/CRP)...

To determine the frequency of advanced clinical and radiological features of AS with reference to gender, onset of symptoms and disease duration. Fifty-seven patients diagnosed with AS were included in this study. Functional evaluation of the musculoskeletal system detected advanced clinical features: rubber-ball phenomenon, flattening of the chest anterior wall, diastasis of rectus abdominis muscle, steel back phenomenon, umbilical extrusion, skiing posture. Conventional radiographs of sacroiliac joints, pelvis and axial skeleton were obtained in order to analyze signs of sacroiliitis, syndesmophytes, vertebral squaring and ligamentous ossification...

INTRODUCTION: Conventional radiologic modalities provide details only about the anatomic aspect of the various structures of the spine. Frequently the structures that show abnormal morphology may not be the cause of low back pain (LBP). Functional imaging in the form of bone scan along with single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT/CT) may be helpful in identifying structures causing pain, whether morphologically normal or not. The objective of this study is to evaluate the role of bone scan with SPECT/CT in management of patients with LBP...

Inflammatory arthritis and sacroilitis are common presentations to rheumatology clinics. Owing to the physiological changes of pregnancy, the first presentation can be post partum with back pain and an accompanying oligoarthritis or polyarthritis. We present a woman with lower back pain who demonstrated clinical and radiological features consistent with sacroilitis and an inflammatory arthritis but was found to have an unusual presentation of another common cause of arthritis.

Ankylosing spondylitis is the most common whereas ankylosing tarsitis is the least common subgroup of juvenile onset spondyloarthritides. In our recent study a male presented with ankle joint pain and swelling with limited movements and characteristic radiological changes including; periarticular swelling, thickened heel pad, hyperostosis and reduced ankle, calcaneo-cuboid and talo-navicular joint space for ankylosing tarsitis. He also had persistent inflammatory low back pain with radiological sacroilitis satisfying the clinical features for ankylosing spondylitis...

The spondyloarthritides are group of interrelated and overlapping arthritic conditions which primarily include ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis/Reiter's disease and arthritis associated with psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease. They are characterised by the absence of rheumatoid factor and by association with HLA-B27 antigen. The main clinical features are inflammatory back pain, spondylitis, sacroileitis, asymmetric arthritis of lower limbs, enthesitis, dactylitis, besides fatigue, uveitis, skin and mucous membrane lesions, cardiac and pulmonary involvement...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease of the spine (spondylitis) and sacroiliac joints (sacroileitis) associated in many cases with inflammatory affection of the peripheral joints (arthritis), entesises (entesitis), eyes (uveitis), intestine (enteritis) and aortic root (aortitis). AS is considered now as a prototype of diseases from the group of seronegative spondyloarthritis. AS is a hereditary disease. Predisposition to AS (90%) is associated with genetic factors the key gene of which is HLA-B27...

Results of treatment of 223 patients with ostheomyelitis of various etiology and localization were analyzed. Such aspects as diagnostic difficulties, polifocal type of the disease, sepsis development on the background of pelvic ostheomyelitis were discussed. Ostheoscintygraphy, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography proved to be of highest diagnostic value by pelvic ostheomyelitis. The original method of surgical treatment of purulent sacroileitis with the use of combined (pelvic and extrapelvic) access was represented...

OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis that MR imaging guided triamcinolone acetonide injection into the sacroiliac joints of children with enthesitis-related arthritis is feasible, accurate and safe; and effectively reduces sacroiliac inflammation and disease progression. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 14 children (6/14 [43%] female, 8/14 (57%) male; mean age, 13.2 years; range, 6-16 years) who received MR imaging guided sacroiliac joint injections at 0.2 Tesla or 1...

Multiple extraintestinal diseases are present in 0.3- 4.5 % of inflammatory bowel disease patients. A 39-year-old woman was admitted with a 3 months history of cervicalgia with functional incapacity, asthenia, tibio-tarsal bilateral arthritis and bloody diarrhoea. She had ferropenic anemia, SR-120 mm, creatinine clearance-42 mL/min, proteinuria-1.2 g/24h. Colonoscopy with biopsy showed active ulcerative rectossigmoiditis. She had bilateral sacroileitis more pronounced at the right side which was suggestive of ankylosing spondylitis...

The spondyloarthropathies comprise a large clinical spectrum of disorders that include well-defined clinical disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis and less well-defined disorders such as undifferentiated spondyloarthritis, which refers to patients with inflammatory back pain not fulfilling classification criteria for ankylosing spondylitis and without radiologic evidence of sacroillitis. These disorders share clinical and genetic features and are linked by their association with HLA-B27 and by the presence of enthesitis as the basic pathologic lesion...

We report a case of a 49-year-old patient who developed poststaphylococcal coagulase negative reactive arthritis. The woman presented with constitutional symptoms, arthritis, urinary infection and conjunctivitis. The blood culture was positive for the staphylococcal coagulase negative infection. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein were elevated, whereas the rheumatoid factor was negative. Radiographic findings confirmed diagnosis of pleuropneumonia, and one year later of chronic asymmetric sacroileitis...

Brucellosis which is a endemic in Turkey, is a systemic infection which can affect any organ or system in the body. Since signs and symptoms of brucellosis resemble many other diseases, misdiagnosis and related increase in morbidity rate, are common. In this report, a case of brucellosis complicated with endocarditis, pyelonephritis, sacroileitis and thyroiditis, was presented. The case was a 32-years-old female patient in whom the diagnosis of brucellosis was delayed by 12 months since it was not taken into consideration during the clinical follow-up of the patient in various clinical centers...

Non-specific clinical presentations and paraclinical findings in osteoarticular brucellosis may mimic many other diseases and other causes of arthritis which could lead to misdiagnosis and mismanagement. We studied retrospectively the records of 232 patients with osteoarticular brucellosis who were admitted to the three teaching hospitals of Babol Medical Sciences University from April 2001 to September 2006. The distribution of osteoarticular involvement and their management were evaluated to determine if any cases had been misdiagnosed because of false negative serologic tests and who had, as a result, undergone inappropriate surgical interventions...

The presence of the specific antibodies for some enterobacteria--Yersinia, Salmonella and Shigella was investigated in patients hospitalized in the period 2000-2007 with reactive arthritis and other rheumatoid diseases. The antibacterial antibodies in the diagnosis titres were found in 172 out of 1102 (15.6%) patients. Increased antibodies levels to Yersinia were detected in the sera from 113 (65.7%) of the 172 patients, for Shigella in 47 (27.3%) and for Salmonella in 12 (7.0%) cases. From all serologically positive patients 126 (73...
