Reiter's Syndrome

Digna Llorente Molina

Reiter’s syndrome is a systemic disorder characterized by ocular conjunctivitis or uveitis, reactive arthritis, and urethritis manifestations. The exact cause of reactive arthritis is unknown. It occurs most commonly in men before the age of 40. It may follow an infection with Chlamydia, Campylobacter, Salmonella or Yersinia. Certain genes may make you more prone to the syndrome. The diagnosis is based on symptoms. The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms and treat any underlying infection. Reactive arthritis may go away in 3 - 4 months, but symptoms may return over a period of several years in up to a half of those affected. The condition may become chronic. Preventing sexually transmitted diseases and gastrointestinal infection may help prevent this disease. Wash your hands and surface areas thoroughly before and after preparing food.
