Editorial: What Is Peripheral Spondyloarthritis?

New classification criteria based on the predominant features of SpA, namely axial and peripheral disease, were developed in the hope that they would assist in diagnosing SpA early so that patients may be treated appropriately, in a timely manner, to prevent progression of deformities and functional disability.
