206 Possible Causes for Joint Effusion, Joint Stiffness, Progressive Contractures

  • Arthritis

    Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.com] Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. The main symptoms are joint pain, swelling and stiffness.[symptoma.com] Abstract Point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound can provide information about joint effusions and the quality of the effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Another characteristic symptom of the disease is the progressive incapacity of the joint to function, leading – in the long run – to loss of mobility.[oafifoundation.com] The absolute reduction in finger joint stiffness for the exercise group, compared with the control group, was 7% (3% to 10%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A joint effusion is the presence of increased intra-articular fluid. [1] It may affect any joint. Commonly it involves the knee.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Polyarthritis

    The characteristic rapid progression of palmar contracture is a key finding that suggests the potential existence of a malignancy. [Indexed for MEDLINE] Free full text[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVES: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) or unspecified polyarthritis (UA) deal with several symptoms such as joint stiffness, pain,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Frequent complaints are: Tenderness Arthralgia Joint swelling Joint effusion Joint deformity Stiffness Reduced motion range Crepitation Affected joints may be in close proximity[symptoma.com]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Erosion of the articular cartilage, together with ligamentous changes, result in deformity and contractures. As the disease progresses, pain and deformity increase.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] The common signs include joint stiffness, swelling, pain, redness and warmth. These are typical hallmarks of inflammation.[techtimes.com] […] space, compared with osteoarthritis (OA) where there is a tendency for superior loss of joint space acetabular protrusio Knee joint effusion typically involves the lateral[radiopaedia.org]

  • Hemophilia

    This disease can lead to further symptoms such as: • progressive decreased motion • flexion contractures • muscle atrophy [1] The second most common presentation of hemophilia[physio-pedia.com] Ultimately this process will cause chronic joint stiffness and pain.[emedicinehealth.com] ) mucocutaneous bleeding (e.g. gums, nose, easy bruising) Physical Examination inspection pallor joint effusions bruising movement joint tenderness decreased ROM focal neurological[orthobullets.com]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Destructive surface changes contribute to pain and loss of motion, while ongoing growth disturbances and contractures produce further deformity (Figure 1).[healio.com] Children can have one or many symptoms, such as: Joint pain. Joint swelling. Joint stiffness. Trouble sleeping. Problems walking.[web.archive.org] MRI MRI shows synovial hypertrophy, joint effusions as well as osseous and cartilaginous erosions.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pseudogout

    Signs: Pseudo-Rheumatoid (5% of CPPD Deposition Disease) Symmetric Polyarthritis with low grade inflammation Synovial thickening Flexion contractures Morning Stiffness Fatigue[fpnotebook.com] Rheumatoid arthritis is another illness featuring stiff joints.[detroitnews.com] An axial magnetic resonance imaging scan demonstrated joint effusion at the level of the bilateral L4-L5 facet joint.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Synovitis

    Nodules In progressive conditions, nodules or lumps may develop around the elbow. The elbow joint may get deformed and contractures can develop in some people.[epainassist.com] […] at the joints, difficult joint movement and joint stiffness.[dovemed.com] The mean ADC values were compared between synovitis and joint effusion and between bone erosion and cyst.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Erythema Nodosum

    Subsequently the patient developed progressive skin and joints contracture. A repeated skin biopsy done three months later confirmed the diagnosis of NSF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He denied pain elsewhere nor any fever (Tmax was 99.5F), chills, sweats, weight loss, joint stiffness, abdominal pain, vision or eye changes, or mucous membrane changes.[pediatriceducation.org] Erythema, swelling, and tenderness occur over the joint, sometimes with effusions. Joint tenderness and morning stiffness may occur.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Crystal Arthropathy

    Signs: Pseudo-Rheumatoid (5% of CPPD Deposition Disease) Symmetric Polyarthritis with low grade inflammation Synovial thickening Flexion contractures Morning Stiffness Fatigue[fpnotebook.com] The affected joint may be hot, red, swollen, and stiff. Fever may accompany an acute attack. Damage to the joint progresses after years of these attacks.[arthritis.org] Examination features including joint effusion, joint line tenderness and reduced range of motion are common to both inflammatory and septic sources of arthropathy.[omicsonline.org]
