Spondyloarthropathies are seronegative inflammatory conditions that have wide-ranging effects beyond axial and peripheral joint pain. These conditions are associated with various co-morbidities, ranging from heightened cardiovascular disease risk to osteoporosis, and extra-articular features, such as skin, eye and bowel disorders. These conditions can add significantly to the disease burden experienced by individuals who have spondyloarthropathy. Early detection, differential diagnosis and appropriate management is, therefore, essential for these patients.


The aim of this course is to introduce co-morbidities, extra-articular features and peripheral manifestations associated with spondyloarthropathy as well as how to identify it and when to refer on.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
