Spondyloarthritides

Spondyloarthritides (aka spondyarthritis, SpA, seronegative spondylarthropathy) – these are inflammatory joint diseases of the vertebral column and sacro-iliac joints. These conditions tend to mimic rheumatoid conditions (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis), but are serologically different, as rheumatoid factor is usually negative.

Examination of the hand and wrist | Arthritis Research UK

It is most comfortable for the patient to have their hands positioned on a pillow. In this position look for obvious swellings, loss of alignment, muscle wasting and scars. Try to decide if changes are symmetrical or asymmetrical. Look at the nails for psoriatic changes of pitting and onycholysis, and also nailfold vasculitis.

Examination of the elbow | Arthritis Research UK

Begin with looking at the patient from the front for the normal carrying angle, and from the side for any flexion deformity. The posterior aspect of the elbow is inspected for obvious scars, swellings, rashes or signs of olecranon bursitis, or rheumatoid nodules or psoriatic plaques and, again, the medial aspect should also be inspected. Temperature is assessed by comparing adjacent sites.

Examination of the knee | Arthritis Research UK

Look initially from the end of the bed for loss of symmetry and loss of normal leg alignment such as varus deformity – where distal to the knee is deviated medially leading to a bow-legged appearance – or valgus deformity – where distal to the knee is deviated laterally leading to a knock-kneed appearance.

Examination of the foot and ankle | Arthritis Research UK

With the patient on a couch and their feet overhanging the end of it, look at the feet, comparing for symmetry. In the forefoot look for nail changes and skin rashes. Look for the alignment of the toes and any evidence of hallux valgus of the big toe. Look for clawing of the toes, joint swelling and callus formation. Look at the underside or plantar surface for callus formation. Look at the patient’s shoes for asymmetrical wearing of the sole, the presence of insoles or other signs of poor fit.
