There may be inflammation of the eyes, joints, blood vessels, central nervous system and gastrointestinal tract involvement. Attacks last about a week to a month and recur spontaneously. Onset is usually between 20-30 years of age with symptoms ocurring up to several years after the onset. Twice as many men as women are affected. There is a genetic predisposition, with autoimmune mechansism and viral infection which may all play a part. Related disorders are Reiters Syndrome, Stevens Johnson Syndrome, and Ulcerative Colitis.

In addition, some affected individuals may experience a serious complication known as amyloidosis, which is characterized by abnormal accumulation of a fatty-like substance (amyloid in various parts of the body. If amyloid accumulates in the kidneys (renal amyloidosis), kidney function may be impaired and life-threatening complications may occur.

Extractions: Spondyloarthropathy Now we get really complicated! We are in fact criss-crossing "families". Spondyloarthropathy is defined as a group of rheumatic diseases that share similar clinical features of axial arthritis, peripheral inflammatory arthritis and extra-articular symptoms such as conjunctivitis, skin rashes (eg., psoriasis), inflammation of mucosal surfaces and inflammation in the tendinous attachments to bone (enthesitis). Fine! sounds complicated but OK lets go along with that but then we learn that the family includes: Psoriatic arthritis - Which we have already covered as a separate section Ankylosing spondylitis - Which we have covered as one of the Psoriatic arthritis conditions Reiters syndrome and Enteropathic arthritis neither of which we have come across before! So here goes: Is a combination of arthritis, conjunctivitis and urethritis (or dysentery), which is called a "reactive arthritis" because joint inflammation that occurs in Reiters appears to be a reaction to an infection that originates in areas of the body other than the joints. The most common pathogens known to induce Reiters syndrome are Shigella, Salmonella, Yersinia, Campylobacter or urogenital/post venereal pathogens such as Chlamydia or Ureaplasma.

Extractions: Rheumatoid arthritis may be difficult to diagnose. Many other conditions can resemble it and its symptoms can develop insidiously. Blood tests and x-rays may show normal results for months after the onset of joint pain. Even after rheumatoid arthritis has been diagnosed, it is extremely important to determine whether the course of the disease is benign (type 1) or aggressive (type 2) in order to treat the problem appropriately. Various blood tests may be used to help diagnose RA, determine its severity, and detect complications of the disease. Rheumatoid Factor. In RA, antibodies that collect in the synovium of the joint are known as rheumatoid factor . In about 80% of cases of rheumatoid arthritis, blood tests reveal rheumatoid factor. It can also show up in blood tests of people with other diseases. However, when it appears in patients with arthritic pain on both sides of the body, it is a strong indicator of type 2 RA. The presence of rheumatoid factor plus evidence of bone damage on x-rays also suggests a significant chance for progressive joint damage.
Extractions: Your Immune System Governs Your Health You live in a world of germs and you are at war. Your bodys warm environment, rich in nutrients, is like an ideal home where tiny organisms can thrive. Their aim is to get in. Your bodys job is to keep them out. Keeping infectious microorganisms out and destroying any that get in is the mission of your immune system. Your immune system is a complex array of organs, cells and molecules throughout your body. Everybody needs Respivax for a stronger Immune System to fight off common illnesses! Whether the invader is a life-threatening bacterial pneumonia or a relatively harmless cold virus, destruction by your immune system must be total. A single infectious microorganism that survives can multiply and cause illness. Common infectious organisms include bacteria, viruses and parasites such as fungi, worms and single cell protozoa. Any invader that triggers an immune response is an antigen. As immune cells learn to recognize and ignore your bodys own cells, they learn to recognize and destroy antigens. Every substance from a dust mite to the flu virus to one of your own cells carries its own chemical ID card. Your immune armys soldier cells is a remarkable arsenal of different types of white blood cells that recognizes the enemy. Any invader must pass through your physical barriers of defense first.

NGU is more common than GU in the U.S. and in much of the developed world; GU may account for up to 80% of the cases of acute urethritis in some undeveloped areas. The ratio of NGU to GU is greater among groups of higher socioeconomic status in the U.S. For example, comparisons of men with NGU versus GU show that those with NGU more often are white, with higher education, higher socioeconomic status, and fewer number of sexual partners. On college campuses, more than 85% of urethritis is nongonococcal.
Extractions: Home MISSION Pain Center Physician Access Gouty arthritis refers to painful monosodium urate crystal deposits in soft tissues, causing extreme pain, especially in the great toe or hand. Ligaments bursa , etc. and other tissues with poor blood supply are subject to these crystals being deposited. There are several chronic diseases that predispose to gout including coronary artery disease, obesity, alcoholism, high blood pressure, and chronic thiazide diuretic usage. The condition initially completely resolves, then recurrences begin occurring with increasing frequency. Initially, the joint spaces are normal on x-ray. Treatment is avoidance of certain foods, colchicine and steroids for acute attacks, and allopurinol for prevention. Spondyloarthropathies refer to other non-inflammatory sources of arthritis. These most often involve the sacroiliac joints and are negative for rheumatoid arthritis blood tests. However, except for psoriatic arthritis, HLA B27 is positive in 90% (normal populations have a positive test in only 10%). Ankylosing spondylitis results in stiffening of the spine and spine pain from spontaneous spinal fusion of multiple spine segments and swelling of ligament insertions into bone, and one sided sacroiliitis. The spine eventually develops a typical bamboo appearance on x-ray.

Extractions: Background The importance of Campylobacter jejuni as a human pathogen was not fully realized until 1977. In a three-year period (1978-1980) the incidence of gastroenteritis caused by C. jejuni-C. coli at the Hospital for SickChildren (Toronto) rivalled that of nontyphoidal Salmonella as the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis. Today C. jejuni is recognized as a major causative agent of bacterial diarrhea and enterocolitis in children and adults worldwide. The clinical symptoms of Campylobacter enterocolitis vary from watery diarrhea to inflammatory dysentery and bloody diarrhea. C. jejuni C. jejuni has also been implicated as a cause of acute motor axonal neuropathy, a paralytic disease that has affected thousands of Chinese children. Recognized complications of C. jejuni
Extractions: There is another form of arthritis call Reiter"s syndrome that can come from certain bacteria or Salmonella found in food or water. People who develop this seem to have an abnormal response to certain infections, in that their immune systems attack their joints while fighting off the infection. This can lead to pain and swelling in the affected joints, the urinary tract and the eyes. Almost half of people with Reiter's Syndrome will not have a second episode. But, with subsequent episodes, it is more likely that the disease will become chronic. Back to Home Page
