Sixty patients with Crohn's disease have been assessed radiologically and by quantitative sacroiliac scintigraphy for evidence of sacroilitis and/or ankylosing spondylitis. The incidence of radiologic sacroiliitis (11%) and ankylosing spondylitis (5%) was no greater in our series than previously reported. However, the incidence of increased uptake of radiotracer at the sacroiliac joints was 52%. There was no correlation in the group as a whole between radiologic and/or scintigraphic evidence of… Expand

TLDR
A single family is presented in which 2 of the 3 sibs and 3 of 9 first degree relatives had Crohn's disease, and HLA typing revealed HLA B27 in all 5 members of the immediate family. Expand
EVIDENCE FOR SACROILIAC DISEASE AS A COMMON CAUSE OF LOW BACKACHE IN WOMEN
TLDR
It is concluded that sacroiliac disease is a common cause of low backache in women, and that it can be objectively diagnosed by Q.S.S when radiographs are normal. Expand
Sacroiliitis in Inflammatory Joint Diseases
TLDR
Seropositive rheumatoid arthritis was rare and mild, and it was associated with a highly destructive polyarthritis, but sacroiliitis seems not to be associated as strongly with HLA-B27 as with the disease or its aetiology. Expand
Quantitative sacroiliac joint scintigraphy
TLDR
Although highly sensitive, QSS abnormalities are not specific for inflammatory sacroiliac (SI) joint disease and other disorders with roentgenographic SI joint abnormalities must be studied scintigraphically before QSS can be employed as a useful diagnostic test. Expand
Sacroiliitis detected by bone scintiscanning: a clinical, radiological, and scintigraphic follow-up study.
TLDR
It is concluded that quantitative sacroiliac scintigraphy may detect ankylosing spondylitis prior to the develpment of radiological change and that it can identify an organic basis for backache in patients with a sponylitis-like syndrome. Expand
Clinical and genetic factors associated with sacroiliitis in Crohn's disease
TLDR
In a multicenter study, the association of SI in CD patients with clinical phenotypes, other EIM and CARD15 polymorphisms is investigated. Expand
Radionuclide bone scanning in females with chronic low back pain.
TLDR
It is concluded that sacroiliac disease may be a common cause for chronic low back pain in women and that its presence may be missed if radiographs are relied upon to confirm the diagnosis. Expand
Evaluation of quantitative sacroiliac scintigraphy for the early detection of sacroiliitis
TLDR
A large overlap between the normal and abnormal ranges of sacroiliac ratios limits the utility of quantitative sacroiliarac scintigraphy for the early diagnosis of sacROiliac joint disease. Expand
Radiological sacroiliitis, a hallmark of spondylitis, is linked with CARD15 gene polymorphisms in patients with Crohn’s disease
TLDR
CARD15 variants were identified as genetic predictors of Crohn’s disease related sacroiliitis and an association was demonstrated between these polymorphisms and an extraintestinal manifestation of Cro bowel disease. Expand
Frequency of axial spondyloarthritis in Tunisian patients with inflammatory bowel diseases
TLDR
Due to the high frequency, an early diagnosis of spondyloarthritis in patients with inflammatory bowel disease by thorough clinical exam and standard pelvic X-rays should be recommended. Expand

Investigation of sacroiliac disease: Comparative evaluation of radiological and radionuclide techniques.
TLDR
An attempt has been made to improve diagnostic precision in a group of diseases associated with inflammation of the sacroiliac joints, by using a 99mTechnetium stannous pyrophosphate bone scan, which shows an increase in the uptake of radionuclide which can be precisely quantitated. Expand
Psoriatic spondylitis: a clinical, radiological, and scintiscan survey.
TLDR
Thirty-three per cent of patients with psoriatic spondyloarthropathy referred to a rheumatic disease unit were found to have radiological sacroiliitis, which occurred in association with all of the patterns of peripheral joint involvement which may occur in psoriasis. Expand
The sacroiliitis of acute Reiter's syndrome.
TLDR
It seems likely that sacroiliitis is a common feature in patients with early Reiter's syndrome and while in most patients it resolves with resolution of disease activity, in some it may persist with the development of overt radiological changes. Expand

TLDR
The frequency of abnormal sacroiliac scinitigrams in 26 patients with rheumatoid arthritis and in a group of other diseases-Crohn's disease, uveitis, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, and Reiter's disease-all of which share some of the manifestations of AS are noted. Expand
Lack of association of HLA B27 with radiographic sacroiliitis in inflammatory bowel disease.

Nucleographic studies of axial spondarthritides. I. Quantitative sacroiliac scintigraphy in early HLA-B27-associated sacroiliitis.
TLDR
QSS appears to be useful in detecting inflammatory sacroiliitis associated with B27 positivity before the development of radiographic disease, and it may be an objective tool in assessing the short-term therapy of inflammatory sacROiliitis. Expand
Radiologic and scintiscan findings in HLA-B27 negative patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
TLDR
The suggestion that the HLS-B27 antigen itself may play a role in the pathogenesis of the disease, and does not serve merely as a marker for a linked immune response gene, is supported. Expand
Transplantation antigens in Crohn's disease
TLDR
The complete HL-A antigen profile was examined in 77 patients with Crohn's disease, 11 of whom had unequivocal ankylosing spondylitis, and this antigen may, therefore, be a useful marker of spONDylitis in Crohn’s disease. Expand
HL-A 27 in Crohn's disease.
TLDR
The HL-A profile of patients with Crohn's disease was investigated to determine whether those with HL- a 27 are more likely to have rheumatological disease. Expand
Bone scintiscanning updated.
TLDR
Present evidence suggests that abnormal accumulation of 99mTc-polyphosphate and its analogues results from ionic deposition at crystal surfaces in immature bone, this process being facilitated by an increase in bone vascularity. Expand
