What is Reactive Arthritis (Reiter’s Syndrome)?

Reactive Arthritis, previously termed Reiter’s syndrome, is a type of inflammatory arthridity (joint disease) that develops in response to a bacterial infection. The joints of the lower back, knees and ankles are most commonly affected. It typically affects men aged 20-50 and unlike other forms of arthritis may result in recovery, however without adequate care it can become a chronic condition.

Symptoms of reactive arthritis include pain, swelling or stiffness in a joint, muscular aches and pains, pain in the low back and buttocks, pain and inflammation of tendons (e.g. Achilles Tendinitis), pain and redness in the eyes, and/or a rash on the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet.
