The case of a 59-year-old man with definite HLA B27 negative ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and Paget's disease involving the skull, the right side of the pelvis and the proximal femur is reported. Fifteen cases with this coexistence have previously been described. Some of these, however, are patients with Paget's disease mimicking AS. It is emphasized again(More)
Sacroiliitis of seronegative spondyloarthropathy may sometimes show on pelvis plain films findings indistinguishable from those of osteitis condensans ilii. Computed tomography (CT) can differentiate earlier than plain radiography between the 2 conditions; furthermore, it should also be possible to make this differentiation clinically. The aim of our study(More)
Three more cases of B27-positive patients who developed peripheral arthritis immediately after trauma are reported. The first had an exacerbation of arthritis in the right hip after falling from her motor-bike. The second had arthritis of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint of the right forefinger after shutting his finger in the door of his car. The(More)
In order to reduce the subjective factor in evaluating sacroiliac joint radiographs we further evaluated changes seen on standard plain films of patients suffering from Behçet's syndrome (BS) by using computed tomography (CT). Sacroiliac joint films of 20 consecutive patients with BS were mixed with those of 20 consecutive control patients and read blindly(More)
