A Practical Guide to Clinical Medicine

Detailed examination of the joints is usually not included in the routine medical examination. However, joint related complaints are rather common, and understanding anatomy and physiology of both normal function and pathologic conditions is critically important when evaluating the symptomatic patient. By gaining an appreciation for the basic structures and functioning of the joint, you'll be able to "logic" your way thru the exam, even if you can't remember the eponym attached to each specific test!

Not a typical case of bilateral knee osteoarthritis

A 64 year old woman presented to our clinic with intermittent bilateral knee pain for several years. She described her pain as mild, diffuse, both improved and worsened with walking, and occasionally associated with a sensation of instability. Although she had no history of trauma, mechanical symptoms such as locking, interference with daily activities, or pain in other joints, she did have osteoarthritis of the knee and osteoporosis. Several years earlier she had received a corticosteroid injection in her left knee but had never undergone imaging of her knees. Recently, she had been using paracetamol (acetaminophen) and naproxen as needed for the pain.

Towards test and treat strategy for HIV in sub-Saharan Africa

Ending the AIDS epidemic has now become a realistic priority for global health policy makers. The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) announced that 15 million people are now receiving antiretroviral treatment (ART) and that by 2020, 90% of all people with HIV should know their HIV status, 90% of those diagnosed should have access to antiretroviral treatment, and 90% of people receiving treatment should maintain viral suppression (the 90-90-90 targets).1 CD4 cell thresholds have historically guided initiation of treatment, but results from the HIV Prevention Trials Network 052 Trial,2 the Strategic Timing of Antiretroviral Treatment (START) Study,3 and the TEMPRANO Trial4 provide compelling evidence that the benefits of early initiation outweigh any reasons for delay. This evidence has formed the scientific basis for the 90-90-90 targets.

Hip pain and radiographic signs of osteoarthritis

Hip pain is common, particularly among adults older than 50 years, and intuitively linked to osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis refers to a heterogeneous group of joint disorders characterised by progressive destruction of cartilage. Patients present with activity related joint pain and stiffness.1 2 Osteoarthritis can be classified as primary or secondary, but in practice and research the diagnosis is more often categorised as radiographic osteoarthritis, self reported osteoarthritis, or clinical (symptomatic) osteoarthritis. These designations have substantially different prevalences and incidences.2 3 4 Since osteoarthritis is a leading cause of pain and disability, we clearly need a better understanding of its epidemiology, and we need better methods for identifying patients at risk of the debilitating consequences of progressive limitations to daily life caused by symptomatic disease.1 2 5 6
