Spondyloarthropathies (SPA) are a group of common inflammatory rheumatic disorders characterized by axial and/or peripheral arthritis, associated with enthesitis, dactylitis, and potential extra-articular manifestations such as uveitis and skin rash.

Assessment of 2 systems of spondyloarthropathy diagnostic and classification criteria (Amor and ESSG) by a Spanish multicenter study. What causes spondyloarthropathy? The exact aetiology and pathogenesis of the spondyloarthropathies is undetermined. There is clear evidence that genetic background and environmental factors trigger proinflammatory cytokines, and these lead to an increased susceptibility to spondyloarthropathies .There is a close link between ankylosing spondylitis, psoriasis, and Crohn .
Spondyloarthropathy (SpA) is a family of arthritis  composed minimally of ankylosing spondylitis (AS), reactive arthritis (Reiter's syndrome; RS), SpA associated with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis (IBD), SpA associated with psoriasis (PSA), and patients sharing features of SpA but not carrying any of the above latter group is termed ‘undifferentiated. & Van Der Linden, S. (). New criteria for inflammatory back pain in patients with chronic back pain: a real patient exercise by experts from the Assessment of SpondyloArthritis international Society (ASAS). Seronegative spondyloarthropathies (seronegative spondyloarthritides) share certain clinical characteristics (eg, inflammatory back pain, uveitis, gastrointestinal symptoms, rashes). Some are strongly associated with the human leukocyte antigen B27 (HLA-B27) allele. Discussion for such a book took initial form at the outstanding 4th Gent Symposium on SpA in October , but was not formally commissioned by Landes Bioscience until early Molecular Mechanisms of Spondyloarthropathies aims to synthesize this growing knowledge and present all the current studies concerning the basic research of SpA.
