WHAT DOES ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Ankylosing spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis, previously known as Bechterew's disease and Marie-Strümpell disease, is a chronic inflammatory disease of the axial skeleton, with variable involvement of peripheral joints and nonarticular structures. AS is a member of the group of the spondyloarthropathies, with a strong genetic predisposition. It mainly affects joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joint in the pelvis. In severe cases, it can eventually cause complete fusion and rigidity of the spine. "Bamboo spine" develops when the outer fibers of the annulus fibrosus of the intervertebral disks ossify, which results in the formation of marginal syndesmophytes between adjoining vertebrae. It usually begins in the second or third decade of life and has male preponderance.
