- Radiation Exposure to the Sacroiliac Joint From Low-Dose CT Compared With Radiography. [Journal Article]
- AAAJR Am J Roentgenol 2018 Sep 12; :1-5
- CONCLUSIONS: LD CT of the SIJ can be consistently performed with an effective radiation dose of less than 1 mSv. Because reliability and sensitivity of radiography for sacroiliitis is poor, we recommend that LD CT replace radiography for dedicated evaluation of the SIJ.
- Emergence of severe spondyloarthropathy-related entheseal pathology following successful vedolizumab therapy for inflammatory bowel disease. [Journal Article]
- RRheumatology (Oxford) 2018 Sep 10
- CONCLUSIONS: Severe SpA, predominantly HLA-B27 negative, with osteitis/enthesitis may occur under successful VDZ treatment for IBD, including in subjects with prior anti-TNF therapy for intestinal disease.
- Cross-correlation between spine and hip joint kinematics differs in healthy individuals and subgroups of ankylosing spondylitis patients during trunk lateral flexion. [Journal Article]
- MSMusculoskelet Sci Pract 2018 Sep 05; 38:8-14
- CONCLUSIONS: The cross-correlation between spine and hip joint kinematics differs in healthy individuals and AS patients during trunk lateral flexion. The motion pattern changes in patients with AS of differing severity may also alter the loads on the spine and hip joints.

Streptococcus pneumonia is a rare cause of pyogenic sacroiliitis and osteomyelitis. A case of pneumococcal sacroiliitis and osteomyelitis is reported herein. The patient was a previously healthy 54-year-old man with a 3-day history of fever and a 3-week history of increasing right-side thigh pain. Computed tomography showed bone destruction of the right sacroiliac joint with perifocal abscess formation in the right iliac muscle. The patient was diagnosed with pyogenic sacroiliitis and osteomyelitis with a right iliac muscle abscess. Mucoid serotype 3 S. pneumonia was obtained by culture of abscess. The patient was successfully treated with an 8-week course of antibiotics.
- Tuberculous sacroiliitis with secondary psoas abscess in an older patient: a case report. [Journal Article]
- JMJ Med Case Rep 2018 Aug 18; 12(1):237
- CONCLUSIONS: Sacroiliitis with secondary psoas abscess is an unusual cause of hip pain and is likely to be overlooked since joint pain of the lower extremity and lumbar pain are some of the most common complaints in older individuals. A high level of suspicion and invasive diagnostic procedures are needed for timely diagnosis of tuberculous sacroiliitis not only in immunocompromised patients living in or originating from endemic areas.
- Acute Unilateral Sacroiliitis Mimicking Infection on Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Response to Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs: A Distinct Presentation of Spondyloarthritis? [Journal Article]

Sacroiliitis is associated with the spondyloarthropathies (SpA) including ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and reactive arthritis (ReA), and may be visualized using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Here, we describe 4 cases of acute unilateral sacroiliitis with florid MRI appearances that mimicked infection but demonstrated a prompt and complete response to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAID).
