Abstract

The clinical diagnosis of Reiter disease generally requires the classical triad of arthritis, urethritis and conjunctivitis. Although only two of these three clinical components are apparently present in this case, the combination of the pattern of joint involvement, the radiographic appearance, a relatively new serological test (for HL-A B27) and the clinical history indicate a diagnosis of Reiter arthritis. Thus, the case is of interest not only because of the previously undescribed atlanto-axial subluxation in Reiter arthritis, but also because of the type of analysis required for a diagnosis of atypical Reiter disease.
