  1. Reactive arthritis : incidence, triggering agents and clinical presentation.

    Article - En anglais


    To study the incidence and presenting clinical and microbiological features in subgroups of reactive arthritides.


    In a defined community and during a 2-year period, we studied prospectively patients between 18 and 60 years with onset of suspected reactive arthritis, primarily seen by general practitioners.


    Annual minimum incidence of Chlamydia induced arthritis (n=25) was 4.6 and of athritis triggered by enterobacteria (n=27) 5.0/100,000 individuals between 18 and 60 years.

    Triggering infections were asymptomatic in 36 and 26%, respectively.

    Patients with self-limiting arthritis without identified triggering agents (n=60, incidence 11.0/100,000) had a normal prevalence of HLA-B27 and a more heterogeneous pattern of arthritis.
