Arthrodesis, osteotomy and arthroplasty all have their place and are considered in the appropriate chapters. However, it should be recognized that patients who are no longer suffering the pain of active synovitis and who are content with a limited pattern of life may not want or need heroic surgery merely to improve their anatomy. Careful assessment for occupational therapy, the provision of mechanical aids and adjustments to their home environment may be much more useful. ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS Like rheumatoid arthritis, this is a generalized chronic inflammatory disease – but its effects are seen mainly in the spine and sacroiliac joints.

The term ‘juvenile rheumatoid arthritis’ can be used for this group. Seronegative spondarthritis In older children – usually boys – the condition may take the form of sacroiliitis and spondylitis; hips and knees are sometimes involved as well. Tests for HLA-B27 are often positive and this should probably be regarded as ‘juvenile ankylosing spondylitis’. Complications Stiffness Although most patients recover good function, some permanent loss of movement is common. Growth defects There is general retardation of growth, sometimes aggravated by prolonged corticosteroid therapy.

Joint tuberculosis may start either in the synovium or in a nearby metaphysis, from where it spreads across the physis, through the articular surface into the synovial cavity. Either way, the presenting picture is of a chronic monoarthritis affecting a large joint (usually the hip or knee, less often the shoulder or ankle). If the condition is not arrested, the articular surfaces will be destroyed. Healing is by fibrosis, resulting in a tight ‘fibrous ankylosis’ of the joint. Clinical features The patient complains of pain and (in a superficial joint) swelling.
