Abstract

The principal manifestations of certain syndromes presumed to be variants of rheumatoid arthritis are reviewed and the results of serologic studies presented. The entities investigated were anky-losing spondylitis, Still's disease, psoriatic arthritis, the arthritis of ulcerative colitis and Reiter's syndrome. Serologic observations suggested that Still's syndrome is truly juvenile rheumatoid arthritis but that the other variants may be separate diseases.
