INTRODUCTION

La spondylarthrite ankylosante (SA) est une maladie chronique caractérisée par l’inflammation des articulations de la colonne vertébrale. Elle figure parmi un groupe de maladies, les spondylarthropathies, qui partagent des traits cliniques, génétiques et radiologiques. Le terme « manifestations extraarticulaires » fait référence à la participation des systèmes du corps autres que les articulations, par exemple, les yeux, l’intestin et la peau. La présence des manifestations extraarticulaires peut avoir d’importantes implications quant aux choix de traitement de la SA.
