In the present study, we evaluated serum YKL-40 as a possible marker for both peripheral and axial arthropathies
in patients with IBD, and we assessed its biological variation and compared it with that reported for CRP and serum amyloid A (SAA) (18,19).
They are detectable in a wide spectrum of arthropathies
, and indeed in a number of healthy [people]," El-Gabalawy tells Science News.
These were linear or punctuate deposits associated with certain diseases, such as chondrocalcinosis, pseudogout, and pyrophosphate arthropathies
The text uses a simple approach to diagnosis focusing on the use of radiographs and the more common arthropathies
and their hallmarks, excluding any deviations.
Additionally, the patient has symmetrical small joint involvement of the hands with marked and confusing inflammation mimicking rheumatoid arthritis (RA), PsA or other erosive interphalangeal arthropathies
Gouty arthritis in the adult, arthritis and other arthropathies
The investigators linked data from a registry of people with inflammatory arthropathies
who were taking disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (the NOR-DMARD Registry) with the Medical Birth Registry of Norway that has recorded all births in Norway since 1967.
This relatively new technology also may prove useful in evaluating nodular lesions, diagnosing concurrent gout in patients with other arthropathies
, and identifying urate deposits in body areas that are atypical for gout or challenging to assess.
Anti-TNF-alpha is currently in use for treatment of inflammatory arthropathies
, Crohn's disease, and psoriasis.

Using extensive illustrations and clinical x-ray films, the authors explain the most common spinal disorders, including thoracolumbar trauma, mechanical lower-back pain, prolapsed thoracolumbar intervertebral discs, lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, infections, tumors, inflammatory arthropathies
, disorders of the sacrum and coccyx, cervical spine and related soft-tissue injuries, cervical radiculopathy, cervical spondylosis and myelopathy, the rheumatoid spine, and pediatric spinal conditions.
Family history was negative for inflammatory joint disease, crystal arthropathies
, or autoimmune disorders.
The crystal arthropathies
, gout and calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease, are caused by deposition of monosodium urate (MSU) or calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate (CPPD) crystals, respectively.
ACR Poster Session A; Session: Metabolic and Crystal Arthropathies
- Therapeutics and Outcomes I: Monday, November 8, 2010
This text presents 27 chapters beginning with basic concepts and covering all aspects of gout, calcific crystal arthropathies
, and imaging.
