OBJECTIVE The concept that gut inflammation is implicated in the pathogenesis of spondyloarthropathies (SpA) has long been considered. Subclinical intestinal inflammation has been reported in adult patients with SpA by histological examination of intestinal biopsies. We assessed the presence of gut inflammation by abdominal 99mTc-hexamethyl propylene amine oxime (99mTc-HMPAO) labeled leukocyte scintigraphy in a group of children and adolescents with HLA-B27 positive SpA without gastrointestinal… CONTINUE READING
