Pathologist
  • Abstract We report a case of Charcot spinal arthropathy in a diabetic patient and emphasize the clinical reasoning leading to the diagnosis, discuss the differential diagnosis, and insist on the crucial role of the radiologist and pathologist which allows[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • […] product is not detected in the joint reactive arthritis is classified within the group of spondyloarthritis, including ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease, acute anterior uveitis, juvenile[gpnotebook.co.uk]
  • , and arthritis mutilans.[idoj.in]
Joint Swelling

  • […] arthropathy [ ahr-throp ah-the ] any joint disease. chondrocalcific arthropathy progressive polyarthritis with joint swelling and bony enlargement, most commonly in the small joints of the hand but also affecting other joints, characterized radiographically[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • Other evidence of neuropathy include skin erythema, swelling, hyperpigmentation, purpura, and soft-tissue ulcers. [1] Examination of the foot joints Joint swelling, warmth, erythema, increased joint laxity, dislocation and deformities can be detected[explainmedicine.com]
  • As with any other synovial joint injury, the joint swells and the back muscles clench to protect it. You can injure a healthy facet joint in a myriad different ways, although the mechanism of injury usually involve a degree of bending twist.[simplebackpain.com]
  • Common manifestations include joint swelling, effusion, deformity, and instability. Pain may be disproportionately mild due to the underlying neuropathy. Diagnosis requires x-ray confirmation.[merckmanuals.com]
Knee Pain
  • Pain could even radiate past the knee Pain occurs a few times a month or as little as a few times per year Tenderness to touch Discomfort increases when bending backward more than when bending forward Pain episodes that are recurrent Muscle weakness Numbness[healthfixit.com]
Stiffness of the Shoulder
  • He presented with persistent pain and stiffness affecting both shoulder and pelvic girdles, unresponsive to factor VIII (FVIII) infusions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Encephalopathy
Neglect
  • Discussion of the role of subchondral bleeding in joint damage has been neglected. A case of haemophilic arthropathy with extensive evidence of subchondral bleeding and related osteochondral destruction is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • History and neurological workup revealed a neuropathy most consistent with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type II.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Laboratory workup revealed antinuclear antibodies, anti–double-stranded DNA antibodies, anti-Ro (SS-A) antibodies, non–nephrotic-range proteinuria, and leukopenia. Testing for rheumatoid factor and anti-CCP antibodies was negative.[nejm.org]
  • Controversy continues regarding the true prevalence, most accurate diagnostic methods, and most efficacious treatment of symptomatic lumbar facet joints. [11] Workup The use of diagnostic blocks is fundamental to a diagnosis of lumbar facet joint pain[emedicine.medscape.com]
Treponema Pallidum
  • KEYWORDS: Syphilis (Treponema pallidum); bacterial disease; diagnosis; screening[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Surgical decompression is an effective treatment, but the optimal treatment remains controversial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • […] carriers remain asymptomatic throughout their lives, some patients could develop neurological disorder, inflammatory arthropathy also called HTLV-1-associated arthropathy or T-cell malignancy, the adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma or ATL with a very poor prognosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] risk factors for poor prognosis: nature of the infection, persistent infection with Chlamydia, the presence of HLA-B27 (axial involvement, ocular), male gender, recurrent arthritis and a family history of the disease Reference: Dumond DC.[gpnotebook.co.uk]
  • Prognosis PPAC does not affect life expectancy, but the progressive nature of the disease frequently requires joint replacement by early adulthood. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.[orpha.net]
  • Use of proper mechanics, proper posture, body mechanics and awareness of the do’s and don’ts for a healthy back is necessary for a good prognosis long term.[twinboro.com]

Etiology

  • It should be stressed that the identification and management of the underlying etiology is paramount if the disease process is to be positively impacted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The etiology of the neuropathic condition was syringomyelia in five patients (six shoulders) and chronic alcoholism in one patient.[journals.lww.com]
  • Etiology: unknown, may be calcium phosphate induced. Likely multifactorial related to: coracoacromial arch anatomy, tendon tensile overload, repetitive use, tendon vascularity, age-related degeneration. Women men.[eorif.com]
  • Etiology The responsible gene WISP3 (mapping to human chromosome 6q22) encodes a secreted growth regulator. Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is based on clinical and radiographic findings. Molecular testing is available on research basis.[orpha.net]

Epidemiology

  • His research is focused on a number of key elements in OA including (but not limited to) the epidemiology of osteoarthritis, the application of imaging to better understand structure and function with application to both epidemiologic research and clinical[books.google.com]
  • Summary Epidemiology The prevalence has been estimated at 1/1,000,000 but it is likely to be higher in the Middle East and the Maghreb.[orpha.net]
  • […] osteoarthritis, left shoulder RTC Arthropathy ICD-9 712.12 (chondrocalcinosis due to calcium diphosphate crystals, upper arm) 712.91 (unspecified crystal arthropathy, shoulder region) 716.61 (unspecified monoarthritis, shoulder region) RTC Arthropathy Etiology / Epidemiology[eorif.com]
  • […] identification of the infectious agent or microbial product in the joint post infectious arthritis, characterized by the presence of infection and identification of bacterial antigens in the joint, for example arthritis secondary to meningococcemia Epidemiology[gpnotebook.co.uk]
  • Epidemiology Usually occurs 8 to 12 years after diagnosis of DM Seen mostly in the 5th and 6th decades but can be seen in patients as young as 20 years Men females 30% bilateral incidence 77% prevalence in patients with DM Prevalence without DM 11.7%[unboundmedicine.com]
Sex distribution
Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • The underlying pathophysiology is thought to be due to loss of nociception (pain sensation), most frequently caused by diabetes mellitus, syphilitic myelopathy, or syringomyelia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prevalence 0.1% in all patients 0.8–8% in with the general DM population Up to 13% in high-risk diabetic patients ( 3 ) Etiology and Pathophysiology Exact cause is unknown.[unboundmedicine.com]
  • A better understanding of the pathophysiology, altered biomechanics and bone metabolism is needed to provide the best individual care for these patients.[nature.com]

Prevention

  • He, therefore, underwent arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis with preoperative chelator therapy to prevent a further increase in blood lead levels secondary to surgical manipulation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Regular exercise can keep the facet joints flexible and prevent stiffness in the back or neck. And that’s just one of the many benefits of exercise for facet hypertrophy treatment.[braceability.com]
