Abstract

Reiter's syndrome is associated with a classic triad of arthritis, conjunctivitis, urethritis, and is the most common type of reactive arthritis. This syndrome is a one type of seronegative arthropathy, requiring differential diagnosis with psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, since it is associated with psoriasis-like skin lesion, sacroilitis, spondylitis. The arthritis of Reiter's syndrome is known to be acute, short-lived, and transient, but with subsequent attacks, it is more likely that it will lead to permanent joint damage or disability. We recently have experienced one case of Reiter's syndrome with severe joint destruction and significant functional disability, so here we report one case with review of literature.
