31 Possible Causes for Granulomatous Tissue, Sacroiliac Arthritis, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Brucellosis

    […] disease on tissue specimens.[] Ultrasound and/or X-rays may help show abnormalities in the prostate and/or testicles, and inflammation of the spine in cases of discospondylitis.[] […] to remember that many patients who are at risk for brucellosis are also at risk for tuberculosis, which may likewise present with chronic fevers, fatigue, and evidence of granulomatous[]

  • Whipple Disease

    , and there may be ankylosing spondylitis in the sacroiliac joint. 67 Synovial biopsy and synovial fluid examination show mild non-specific inflammatory changes.[] […] brain biopsy under local anaesthetic, a procedure that is minimally invasive. 26 If there is skeletal involvement, radiology of the hand may show changes, as in rheumatoid arthritis[]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Type 1

    […] with a histologic appearance of granulomatous inflammation.[] The barium and irregularity of the border between the barium and intestine shows up white on X-ray film, revealing inflammation or other abnormalities in the intestine.[] Inflammation of the low back (sacroiliac joint arthritis) and of the spine (ankylosing spondylitis) can cause pain and stiffness of the spine.[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    A search for mycobacterial DNA in granulomatous tissues from patients with sarcoidosis using the polymerase chain reaction. Am Rev Respir Dis 1992 ; 145 : 1142 –1148.[] Sacroiliac joint involvement is rare in patients with sarcoidosis [ Erb et al. 2005 ]. The literature data are limited.[] This sample can help doctors understand what’s causing your symptoms and abnormal x-ray results.[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Subchondral tissues become granulomatous and infiltrated with plasma cells, lymphocytes, mast cells, macrophages, and chondrocytes.[] Diagnosis requires showing sacroiliitis on x-ray.[] Arthritis in the hips and shoulders may also occur.[]

  • Colonic Crohn Disease

    X-rays are then taken to identify any abnormalities. Upper gastrointestinal series. An upper GI series requires you to drink a contrast agent.[] Inflammation of the low back (sacroiliac joint arthritis) and of the spine (ankylosing spondylitis) can cause pain and stiffness of the spine.[] Video capsule endoscopy may be particularly useful when there is a strong suspicion of Crohn's disease but the barium X-rays are normal.[]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    […] erythematosus), granulomatous diseases, chronic infections (eg, viral hepatitis, bacterial endocarditis, TB), and cancers.[] […] muscle atrophy Abnormalities of soft tissue around joint possible Stage IV On X-ray, evidence of cartilage and bone damage and osteoporosis around joint Joint deformity with[] […] and may closely resemble RA – it may be distinguished by blood test in endemic areas Reactive arthritis – asymmetrically involves heel, sacroiliac joints and large joints[]

  • Gastrointestinal Sarcoidosis

    Given the multisystem involvement with significant chest findings, tissue findings of granulomatous disease, and negative workup for other causes of granulomatous inflammation[] Thus, a patient with sarcoidosis may present with back pain or sacroiliac pain.[] Sarcoidosis is often found in patients who don't have any symptoms of sarcoidosis but who have abnormal chest X-ray results.[]

  • Tuberculosis of the Pelvic Bone

    […] revealed necrotising granulomatous lymphadenitis indicative of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (Figure 11 ).[] On investigations her Hemoglobin was 10.2gm%, ESR 62 mm fall at the end of first hour, X-rays chest was normal. X-ray lumbo-sacral spine revealed no abnormality.[] The sacroiliac joint may also be a site for brucella arthritis, and sternoclavicular septic arthritis can also be a consequence of joint bacterial migration from the adjacent[]

  • Joint Tuberculosis

    granulomatous inflammatory tissue with strains of acid-fast bacilli which was confirmed as M. tuberculosis bacilli by the microbiological testing.[] Often, the first indication of TB is an abnormal chest x-ray or other test result rather than physical discomfort.[] Resnick D, Niwayama G (1981) Osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, and soft tissue infection: the mechanisms and situations.[]
