Abstract

The inflammatory arthropathies cover a range of non-infective conditions characterised by inflammation of synovial membranes of joints and tendon sheaths which are associated with general mesenchymal disorders. They are usually progressive, although this varies, and lead to extensive joint and soft-tissue disorganisation and consequent disability.
