(Case Report) Coexistence of Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) With Morphea.


Morphea and AS with an inflammatory background and active immunity can exist in the same patient and recent studies have showed the importance of Th17 and associated cytokines in the pathogenesis of these two diseases. Archives of Rheumatology 2014, Volume 29, Number 2, P 143-146. (Also see: Morphea, Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Causes of Scleroderma: Cytokines)
