The Oxford Handbook of Rheumatology, 4th edition, includes a chapter on spondyloarthritis (SpA) conditions. These conditions are axial spondyloarthritis, including ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease-related arthritis. It summarizes evidence for pathogenetic mechanisms either common to all conditions, or specific for each condition, highlights current disease classifications, and emphasizes clinical features common to all SpAs, such as inflammatory back pain and enthesitis. There is an expanded section on treatments including biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs; ‘biologics’) such as anti-tumour necrosis factor-α‎, ustekinumab, and secukinumab, and new to this edition of the Handbook, an expanded section on juvenile spondyloarthritis.
