Anterior uveitis associated to systemic diseases

Type II lesions were characterized bylow-intensity signal in all of the sequences. CT is comparable to MRI for detecting bone erosion, but issuperior for espondiloartripatias bone sclerosis and ankylosis, and isindicated especially for detecting chronicalterations 1. The sacroiliac joint presents a complex two-compartmentanatomy.

Sacroiliitis: imaging evaluation

For differentiating them, it is important to observe thesite of the edema, i. STIR sequence in infectious sacroiliitis in three patients. CT findings in the infectious process are the same of those observed in the sacroiliitis of spondyloarthropathies, except for the juxtarticular esppondiloartropatias demineralization, considered as the earliest finding, besides signs suggestive of soft tissues involvement and unilaterality of the process In eespondiloartropatias evaluation of the sacroiliac joint, the patient ‘s age should be taken into consideration, since osteoarthrosis is frequent in elder, asymptomatic patients.

Theseerosions are better demonstrated on T1-weighted fat-saturatedsequences. Braun J, van der Heijde D.

Scand J Rheumatol, ; Erosion, subchondral cysts and ankylosis are rarely seen in the degenerative process 4. Bone and joint imaging.

The MRI plays an essential role in better demonstrating earlyalterations and inflammatory activity of this process.

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech, ; The main disadvantages of MRI are: Imaging and scoring in ankylosing spondylitis. The CT shows higher sensitivity for detecting minimal boneerosions and joint space narrowing, however presents the samediagnostic capacity of plain x-rays in cases ofankylosis 2. Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim, ; Magnetic resonance imaging in rheumatic disorders of the spine and sacroiliac joints.

This theory ishistopathologically corroborated by another study, by means ofopen biopsy in patients with initial stage of disease, where theearliest finding was subchondral inflammation.

On theother hand, CT is superior in quantifying chronicalterations. The diagnosis of infectioussacroiliitis is difficult, many times delayed because of itsinsidious clinical presentation with non-specific and poorlylocalized signs, frequently simulating abdominal syndromes,lumbar discopathies or lumbosciatalgia.


However, remote access to EBSCO’s databases from non-subscribing institutions is not allowed if the purpose of the use is for commercial gain through cost reduction or avoidance for a non-subscribing institution.

This study must be interpreted in combinationwith other radiological study, and is of higher value in cases ofunilateral alterations. N Engl J Med ; CT is better than MRI for detectingbone formation in the enthesis of thistopography 3.

Most frequently, spondyloarthropathies occur in youngpatients, the early diagnosis being critical for establishment ofan appropriate therapy aiming at improving prognosis and workingcapacity of the patients 3. These two latter findings can be seen in both sides of the joint, however, they are frequently seen at the iliac side because this side presents lower thickness and some cartilaginous clefts.
