Abstract

Inflammatory bowel disease may be associated with a variety of rheumatologic abnormalities. The patterns of described enteropathic arthritis, not associated with the HLA B27 antigen, include non‐deforming peripheral arthritis, bilateral, symmetric sacroiliitis, and on occasion, destructive monoarthritis. We report three patients with Crohn's disease and patterns of joint disease that have not been previously described. The patients ranged in age from 16 to 31 yr. In all cases, both joint and bowel disease were present since childhood. Antinuclear antibody, rheumatoid factor, and HLA B27 antigen determinations were negative. The distribution and pattern of joint disease were similar to that seen in rheumatoid arthritis. We propose that these cases do not represent coincident rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease, but, rather, atypical manifestations of enteropathic arthritis.
