Reactive Arthritis Following Culture-Confirmed Infections with Bacterial Enteric Pathogens in Minnesota and Oregon: A Population-based Study
This article, published in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, describes the epidemiology and clinical spectrum of reactive arthritis (ReA) following culture-confirmed infection with bacterial enteric pathogens in a population-based study in the United States. This is the first population-based study of ReA following infections due to bacterial enteric pathogens in the United States. These data will help determine the burden of illness due to these pathogens and inform clinicians about potential sequelae of these infections. ABSTRACT ONLY.
