Study: Fibromyalgia may mask axial spondyloarthritis

May 16, 2017

Imaging changes indicative of axial spondyloarthritis occurred frequently in patients with fibromyalgia, which suggested hidden axial spondyloarthritis may be masked by fibromyalgia, according to results of a recently published study.

“In the current study, we have demonstrated the presence of inflammatory active and structural changes indicative of axial [spondyloarthritis] SpA among a significant proportion of patients with a clinical diagnosis of [fibromyalgia syndrome] FMS,” Jacob N. Ablin, MD, from Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, and colleagues wrote. “The results indicate that axial SpA may need to be sought for more actively than commonly appreciated, among patients with such a condition.”
