95 Possible Causes for Osteoarthritis of the Distal Interphalangeal Joint

  • Erosive Osteoarthrosis

    Degenerative joint disease of fingers: Bouchard's nodes on proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint, Heberden's nodes on distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint.[5minuteconsult.com] Custom-made splint treatment for osteoarthritis of the distal interphalangeal joints. J. Hand Surg. Am. 35, 589–593 (2010). 45. Watt, F. E. et al.[nature.com] Erosive osteoarthritis is typically bilateral and symmetrical, and it occurs in the interphalangeal joints (particularly the distal interphalangeal [DIP] joints) of the hands[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Ganglion Cyst

    Mucous cysts are found in the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint and generally present with osteoarthritis, and therefore, they are most commonly seen in older patients.[emedicine.com] Mucous cysts are found in the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint and generally present with osteoarthritis , and therefore, they are most commonly seen in older patients.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Osteoarthritis

    […] characterized by severe local inflammation and degeneration of the distal and proximal interphalangeal joints.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Goitz, Osteoarthritis of the Distal Interphalangeal Joint, The Journal of Hand Surgery, 10.1016/j.jhsa.2010.09.003, 35, 12, (2117-2125), (2010). A.[doi.org] Posteroanterior (PA) radiograph of the hand reveals narrowing, osteophytes, and subchondral cysts affecting the distal interphalangeal joints; this finding is typical of osteoarthritis[emedicine.com]

  • Arthritis

    Specific deformities, which also occur in osteoarthritis, include ulnar deviation, boutonniere deformity (also "buttonhole deformity", flexion of proximal interphalangeal[en.wikipedia.org] Among adults aged 35 years and above in a rural setting in South Africa, a study found prevalence of osteoarthritis of the Distal interphalangeal (DIP) of 38% (95% CI 32.50[doi.org] joint and extension of distal interphalangeal joint of the hand), swan neck deformity (hyperextension at proximal interphalangeal joint and flexion at distal interphalangeal[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    We enrolled 30 patients with painful osteoarthritis of the distal interphalangeal joint in this study.[ortho.w3.kanazawa-u.ac.jp] This splint could be one choice for conservative treatment of osteoarthritis of the distal interphalangeal joint.[ortho.w3.kanazawa-u.ac.jp] We made a tin ring splint for osteoarthritis of the distal interphalangeal joint which looks attractive and is easy to wear.[ortho.w3.kanazawa-u.ac.jp]

  • Polyarthritis

  • Psoriasis

    Distal Interphalangeal Predominant PsA Distal interphalangeal predominant PsA primarily affects the joints closest to the toenails and fingernails, is sometimes confused with[spondylitis.org] A high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging study of distal interphalangeal joint arthropathy in psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis: are they the same?[doi.org] interphalangeal (DIP) finger joints were compared in 6 patients using radiograph-aided 3D diffuse optical tomography: 2 patients with osteoarthritis, 2 with psoriatic arthritis[emedicine.com]

  • Angina Pectoris

    Synonym(s): angina pectoris ; Rougnon-Heberden disease Heberden anomaly Heberden asthma Heberden disease - small-joint rheumatism, with distal interphalangeal joint nodules[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Heberden nodes - small exostoses found on the terminal phalanges of the fingers in osteoarthritis.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Medial Sclerosis

    The most commonly involved joints in the hand and wrist are the first carpometacarpal joints, the trapezionavicular joint and the proximal interphalangeal and distal interphalangeal[aafp.org] joints.[aafp.org] Erosive changes are not seen in primary osteoarthritis.[aafp.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Osteoarthritis (eg, involvement of the proximal and distal interphalangeal joints, Heberden's or Bouchard's nodes). Septic arthritis (particularly if monoarthritis).[patient.info] Both shared common features consistent with the literature: symmetric erosions of bones in the hands, wrists and elbows, sparing of the distal interphalangeal joints, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A differential diagnosis including all four seronegative spondyloarthropathies, erosive osteoarthritis, gout and neuropathic arthropathy was also considered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
