207 Possible Causes for Asymmetrical Arthritis

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    Asymmetric psoriatic arthritis: Asymmetric arthritis typically involves one to three joints in the body -- large or small -- such as the knee , hip, or one or several fingers[] Common features of the above four conditions include: Arthritis affecting joints of the arms and legs in an asymmetrical distribution Arthritis of the spine, hips and shoulders[] Asymmetric psoriatic arthritis does not affect matching pairs of joints on opposite sides of the body.[]

  • Arthritis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    The typical joint pattern is an asymmetric arthritis that develops predominantly in the lower limbs and presents as an oligo- or monoarthritis in the majority of patients.[] Asymmetrical arthritis means that it affects unpaired joints, unlike symmetric arthritis that affects matching joints on both sides of the body (i.e. both knees or both elbows[] There is an asymmetric, oligoarticular arthritis that predominantly affects the lower limbs.[]

  • Reiter's Syndrome

    Psoriatic arthritis can simulate reactive arthritis, causing similar skin lesions, uveitis, and asymmetric arthritis.[] All 18 patients were seronegative, 12 (66.6%) presenting with an asymmetrical oligoarticular arthritis.[] STD, or infection with Chlamydia , Campylobacter , Salmonella , Yersinia Clinical Urethritis days or wks after an infection, followed by a low-grade fever, conjunctivitis, asymmetric[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    The other clinical features of AS and related SpA may include asymmetric arthritis (that more often affects lower extremities) or inflammation of some of the extra-articular[] […] peripheral arthritis of lower extremities. - must be differentiated from DISH ; - Management: - NSAIDS : patients should be placed on indocin as soon as the diagnosis is[] Arthritis of the peripheral joints other than hips and shoulders, usually asymmetric, occurs in 30% of patients. Neck pain and stiffness are usually late manifestations.[]

  • Relapsing Polychondritis

    Nasal cartilage inflammation is the next most common manifestation, followed by arthritis that varies from arthralgias to symmetric or asymmetric nondeforming arthritis involving[] […] are common The upper airways can eventually become stenosed and permanent tracheostomy may be required Musculoskeletal Up to 75% of cases are affected Most commonly, the arthritis[] […] is asymmetric, oligoarticular or polyarticular, and usually non-erosive The ankles, elbow, wrists, proximal interphalangeal joints, metacarpophalangeal joints, and metatarsophalangeal[]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    Rheumatic arthritis is an asymmetric, migratory / fleeting polyarthritis with predominant involvement of large joints of lower limbs and migrates to the upper limb.[] Arthritis in rheumatic fever is seen in about 30-50% children and more often in children with older age at presentation.[]

  • Pseudogout

    Arthritis, bursitis and cellulitis may be associated with these repeated acute attacks. Chronic (tophaceous) gout – occurs after many attacks.[] Asymmetrical polyarthritis After many attacks, there may be: Cartilage and bone erosion Deposition of urate crystals – resulting in tophi Secondary OA Restriction of joint[]

  • Juvenile Psoriatic Arthritis

    Abstract Juvenile psoriatic arthritis (JPsA) is characterized by asymmetric arthritis of big and small joints, enthesitis, dactylitis, psoriatic skin lesions and nail pitting[] Asymmetric arthritis Asymmetric arthritis is where less than five joints are affected at any one time.[] : articular involvement may vary e.g - from symmetrical small-joint arthritis to asymmetrical lower-extremity large-joint arthritis and finally may progress to polyarthritis[]

  • Circinate Balanitis of Reiter's Disease

    Common manifestations include asymmetric arthritis of variable severity that tends to affect the lower extremities with sausage-shaped deformities of fingers or toes or both[] Psoriatic arthritis can simulate reactive arthritis, causing similar skin lesions, uveitis, and asymmetric arthritis.[] Reactive arthritis, formerly known as Reiter’s syndrome (see note at bottom) is an aseptic asymmetric arthritis which predominantly affects the lower limbs and tends to follow[]

  • Reactive Arthritis

    Reactive Arthritis, formerly known as Reiter Syndrome, is a member of the seronegative spondyloarthropathies and is characterized clinically by the triad of an acute asymmetric[] A 45-year-old HLA B27 negative male developed an asymmetric and additive arthritis and a cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis with IgM and complement papillary deposition[] The peripheral arthritis in reactive arthritis (ReA) is usually an asymmetrical oligoarticular arthritis affecting the large joints of the lower limb, although monoarticular[]
