HLA-B27-Associated Spondyloarthritis and Enthesopathy

  • Jerry C. Jacobs
Part of the Comprehensive Manuals in Pediatrics book series (CM PEDIATRICS)


Spondyloarthritis is a new term that “lumps” patients with a group of interrelated familial arthropathies into one diagnostic category and more definitively differentiates patients with milder manifestations of this form of arthritis from those with RA.1–8
