Cutaneous lesions characteristic of Reactive Arthritis
What two cutaneous lesions are characteristic of Reactive Arthritis?
Circinate balanitis and keratoderma blennorrhagicum are relatively specific for ReA. Circinate balanitis is a painless, serpiginous ulceration of the glans penis. Similarly, keratoderma blennorrhagicum refers to psoriasiform lesions occurring primarily on the plantar surface of the heel and metatarsal heads. Both lesions are predominantly associated with urogenital ReA ( Chlamydia ) and resolve spontaneously.
