nonhereditary periodic arthritis syndrome

nonhereditary periodic arthritis syndromes. Why are they grouped together?

  • • Intermittent hydrarthrosis.
  • • Palindromic rheumatism.
  • • Eosinophilic synovitis.
  • • Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema (RS3PE) syndrome.

These syndromes are grouped together because they share four features: (1) intermittent arthritis followed by periods of remission; (2) complete resolution between attacks; (3) rare development of joint damage; and (4) unknown cause. These disorders should not be confused with periodic fever syndromes.
