To study the computed tomography (CT) images of royal Ancient Egyptian mummies dated to the 18th to early 20th Dynasties for the claimed diagnoses of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and to correlate the findings with the archaeology literature. 
On the differential diagnosis of vertebral ankyloses in paleoanthropological material: an example of the Early Iron Age case from the Lower Kama region
TLDR
Results of paleopathological study of a 25–40-year-old male skeleton from burial 183 of the Novo-Sasykul cemetery, dated to the 1st–2nd centuries AD, are presented, focused on differentiating pathological conditions that lead to vertebral ankylosis on skeletal remains. Expand

Axial spondyloarthritis
TLDR
In conclusion, axial spondyloarthritis is a significant health issue, and early life exposures appear to be associated with the disease development. Expand
Changing Phenotype of Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis Over Time: Comment on the Article by Saleem and Hawass
TLDR
Access to clinical data, samples, and imaging from research cohorts of high quality, CSF and blood samples that have been drawn and prepared under optimal and controlled conditions, and cerebral imaging and neuropsychiatric assessments performed according to international standards and recommendations will probably help to clarify several issues that today are unclear.

[CLASSIFICATION AND DIAGNOSIS OF AXIAL SPONDYLOARTHRITIDES – HISTORY, PRESENT STATE, AND PERSPECTIVES].
TLDR
Although the ASAS classification has been widely accepted in the professional community, recently initiatives were raised suggesting changes and aiming at improvements, as well as the responses of experts who consider that these changes are not necessary. Expand
An audit of clinical service delivery and outcomes in diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis – preliminary evidence for efficacy of tumour necrosis factor inhibition therapy
TLDR
A retrospective audit of patients with DISH followed from 2006 to 2020 concluded that a formal prospective trial of the safety and efficacy of TNFi in DISH is justified and support the efficacy of TNF inhibition in painful DISH. Expand
Rheumatology in Egypt: back to the future
TLDR
Rheumatology in Egypt is an actively growing and dynamic specialty of medicine with considerable contributions to the world’s literature and persistent efforts are mandatory to raise the standard of clinical and basic research, to optimize clinical practice with regard to new biologics, to develop tailored and targeted therapies for the rheumatic diseases, and to meet the medical demands of the exponentially increasing Egyptian population.

From the tissue typing results of the two sibling patients, it appears less likely that, if there is a hereditary component, it is linked to HLA status and it remains to be seen whether this is a new disease entity or an unusual familial variant of DISH. Expand
