  1. Joint hypermobility in adults referred to rheumtology clinics.

    Article - En anglais

    Joint hypermobility is a rarely recognised aetiology for focal or diffuse musculoslkeletal symptoms.

    To assess the occurrence and importance of joint hypermobility in adult patients referred to a rheumatologist, we prospectively evaluated 130 consecutive new patients for joint hypermobility.

    Twenty women (15%) had joint hypermobility at three or more locations (>=5 points on a 9 point scale).

    Most patients with joint hypermobility had common musculoslkeletal problems as the reason for referral.
