Other Rheumatic Osteoarthropathies and Soft Tissue Rheumatism Syndromes

  • Yong-Whee Bahk


Of many rheumatic osteoarthropathic disorders systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren’s syndrome, Behçet’s disease, tophaceous gouty arthritis, Charcot’s joint, and secondary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy deserve appropriate descriptions because these disorders often manifest important pinhole scintigraphic changes, suggesting or indicating the diagnosis.
