  • Urogenital Reiterís syndrome

Types discussion:

Reiterís syndrome is also referred to as reactive arthritis, which means that the arthritis occurs as a ďreactionĒ to an infection that started elsewhere in the body. In many patients, the infection begins in the genitourinary tract (bladder, urethra, penis, or vagina). The infection is most commonly passed from one person to another by sexual intercourse. This form of the disorder is sometimes called genitourinary or urogenital Reiterís syndrome. Another form of the disorder, called enteric or gastrointestinal Reiterís syndrome, develops when a person eats food or handles substances that are tainted with bacteria.
