Seronegative Spondylarthropathies

by Carlo Raj, MD

Seronegative spondyloarthropathies encompass a unique subset of disease processes that are each distinct but with overlapping clinical features. They generally include both axial and peripheral symptoms and commonly display inflammatory back pain, oligoarthritis, dactylitis, and enthesitis. Symptom onset often begins at a young age, but diagnosis is commonly delayed secondary to the broad range of signs and symptoms that patients can present with. This delay can lead to continued inflammation and permanent structural damage that leads to a significant reduction in quality of life. Therefore, early suspicion of seronegative spondyloarthropathies is crucial in patients with the appropriate history and physical examination findings, as effective therapies for early treatment have become available, making it possible to prevent the debilitating long-term effects of the disease.
