comprises a heterogeneous group of distinct disorders including ankylosing
spondylitis, non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis,
arthritis related to inflammatory bowel disease and reactive arthritis.
Spondyloarthritis is the second most prevalent form of chronic inflammatory
arthritis, with an estimated prevalence of about 0.5-1.5%. The studies
presented in this thesis cover many aspects related to Spondyloarthritis in
Colombia. The following topics were addressed. First, the analyses and
performance of the different classification criteria and the factors important
in the decision of the rheumatologist to order an MRI or HLA-B27 test in the
diagnostic work-up of spondyloarthritis in the context of the clinical
rheumatology setting. Second, a better insight was obtained with regard to the
presence of comorbidities and risk factors of patients with spondyloarthritis.
This included also a case control study to evaluate the relationship between
periodontitis and spondyloarthritis. Third, the translation and cross-cultural
adaptation to Spanish of the ASAS-HI was performed. Adittionally, the
implementation of the domains and instruments of the ASAS core set in clinical
trials have been evaluated. Finally, we discuss the potential unmet needs in
the field of rheumatology in Colombia and we propose a research agenda for the
