Oxford Textbook of Axial Spondyloarthritis Excerpt :

Axial Spondyloarthritis is a timely addition to the Oxford Textbooks in Rheumatology series, providing a comprehensive reference to this rapidly evolving field. The conceptual framework of the disease has now evolved beyond ankylosing spondylitis to encompass a broader concept of axial inflammation. Earlier recognition has opened the door to earlier intervention, and the understanding of the biologic basis of axial SpA has seen significant advances in recent years. The first textbook to cover axial spondyloarthritis in this level of detail from a global perspective, this volume offers a practical and complete resource compiled by a multidisciplinary and multinational team of experts. Beginning with a historical perspective on the disease, the textbook provides a comprehensive background in the epidemiology, diagnosis, and classification of axial spondyloarthritis. Immune mechanisms and genetics are covered, along with imaging and a detailed section on the range of treatments options currently available. A section on extra-articular manifestations provides a comprehensive knowledge base for the clinician treating patients with spondyloarthritis, and chapters on the economics of the disease, physical functioning, and patient registries complete the broad coverage of the topic. Practical, easy to use, yet detailed with respect to pathophysiology, diagnostics, and management, this textbook provides a comprehensive reference for rheumatologists, general practitioners, internists, and paediatricians managing patients with axial spondyloarthritis.

Ankylosing spondylitis and axial spondyloarthritis Excerpt :

An integral feature of the disease is inflammation involving ligament insertion sites and facet joints of the spine as well as the sacroiliac (SI) joints. The condition often affects HLA-B27 positive individuals and belongs to the group of seronegative spondyloarthropathies together with reactive enteroarthritis and uroarthritis, Reiter’s syndrome enthesitis-related arthritis (ERA), a subgroup of juvenile idiopathic arthritis psoriatic arthritis arthropathy associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Several of the above conditions may be encountered in members of the same family, and they may all lead to ankylosing spondylitis. The condition is termed idiopathic when it has become chronic and no causative agent has been detected, unlike in reactive arthritis.

A Clinician s Guide to Axial Spondyloarthritis Excerpt :

Spondyloarthritis or spondylarthropathy is a group of inflammatory diseases that affect the joints and the entheses where tendons and ligaments attach to bones. It is a major cause of arthritis of the spine and of the peripheral joints, particularly those in the hands, arms, feet and legs. Psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, enteropathic arthritis and reactive arthritis are some of its different forms. It occurs due to genetic factors of inheritance, with close to 30 genes linked with this condition. Spondyloarthritis is characterized with low back pain, which if not controlled, may lead to fusion of the vertebrae and limited spinal mobility. Intermittent joint inflammation accompanied by fatigue, swelling in the arms and legs, osteoporosis, inflammation of the aortic heart valve, psoriasis, redness of the eyes, and intestinal inflammation are some other symptoms of spondyloarthritis. It can be treated with NSAIDs, corticosteroids, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, TNF-alpha blockers and antibiotics. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex advancements in the management and treatment of spondyloarthritis. It presents this complex disease in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. This book will help new researchers by foregrounding their knowledge in this condition.
