The spectrum of ankylosing spondylitis.

Abstract

Sacroiliac involvement is an early hallmark, but even so, patients with ankylosing spondylitis present a remarkable spectrum of disease. Research probing associations among spondylitis, enteric bacterial infection, and host expression of HLA-B27 may offer etiologic clues and point the way to disease-specific therapies.
