287 Possible Causes for Joint Space Narrowing

  • Osteoarthritis

    narrowing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, it has been shown that the degree of joint space narrowing correlates poorly with the incidence and magnitude of knee pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hand X-rays showed joint space narrowing, osteophytosis and bone sclerosis of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyarthritis

    OBJECTIVES: To identify demographic and clinical predictors of obstructive lung disease (OLD) and restrictive lung disease (RLD) in patients with established inflammatory polyarthritis (IP) and to compare the prevalence of respiratory symptoms in patients with IP and the general population. METHOD: A total of 421[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    It will depict only indirect signs of cartilage loss, such as joint space narrowing and bony erosions due to previous destructive synovial inflammatory activity.[web.archive.org] […] the MCPs: symmetric joint space narrowing, subchondral cysts, and osteophytes unlike RA: chondrocalcinosis and no erosions gout usually in older men punched out erosions[radiopaedia.org] It destroys the padding on the ends of bones (cartilage) and narrows the joint space. It can also cause bone overgrowth, bone spurs, and reduced function.[cedars-sinai.org]

  • Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

    Classically, radiographs of affected joints in children with JIA can demonstrate soft tissue swelling, joint space narrowing, erosion, subluxation, ankylosis, calcification[healio.com] Possible complications due to polyarticular JIA include high-level subluxation, accelerated bone age with increased epiphyseal size and narrowing of the joint spaces.[symptoma.com] Accelerated bone age with narrowed joint spaces. Swan-neck and/or boutonnière deformities, and joint subluxation.[patient.info]

  • Bacterial Arthritis

    Narrowing of joint space and irregularity of subchondral bone. subchondral erosions and osteonecrosis andJoint space loss sclerosis of the femoral complete collapse of head[slideshare.net] In later stages, diffuse joint space narrowing due to cartilage destruction may be evident.[patient.info] Later findings include joint space narrowing due to destruction of the joint.Ultrasound is effective at detecting joint effusions.CT and MRI are not required for diagnosis[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Erosive Osteoarthrosis

    There were multiple areas of joint space narrowing with osteophyte formation; these were most notable at the left third DIP joint and the right second PIP interphalangeal[appliedradiology.com] (CMC) joint Additional characteristic features include: diffuse cartilage loss, with joint space narrowing subchondral erosions (at least two central erosions affecting separate[radiopaedia.org] Radiological features of erosive osteoarthritis are Joint space narrowing Subchondral sclerosis Marginal osteophytes, Erosions of the joint [Gull-wing and saw-tooth deformities[boneandspine.com]

  • Hallux Rigidus

    Grade III - Severe changes with significant joint space narrowing, extensive bony proliferation and loose bodies or a dorsal ossicle.[en.wikipedia.org] Investigation The diagnosis is made by obtaining an x-ray showing joint space narrowing, osteophytes and metatarsal head flattening.[fifamedicinediploma.com] space preservation grade 2: moderate osteophyte formation with joint space narrowing and subchondral sclerosis grade 3: marked osteophyte formation and loss of the visible[radiopaedia.org]

  • Kniest Dysplasia

    The hands are affected by osteoporosis, large carpal centers, and bulbously enlarged interphalangeal joints with narrowed joint spaces. Histologic Findings.[musculoskeletalkey.com]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    space narrowing in varus- and patellofemoral OA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was an increase of the sum of joint space narrowing (JSN) and osteophyte grades in the tibiofemoral joint of 144 subjects' index knee (64%) and in the contralateral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In terms of the structure-modifying effect, both glucosamine alone and chondroitin alone achieved a statistically significant reduction in joint space narrowing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemophilic Arthropathy

    […] in Stage III joint space narrowed with destruction of cartilage IV NA marked enlargement of epiphysis fibrous joint contracture; loss of joint space; absence of articular[meducator3.net] Abnormal articular cartilage was demonstrated in 26 joints; bone lesions, fluid collections, and joint space narrowing could also be seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Radiographs revealed bilateral knee joints and left elbow joint damage with joint space narrowing, articular facet erosion, and bone deformation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
