Description:

Rudwaleit et al developed criteria for the diagnosis of inflammatory back pain (due to ankylosing spondylitis) in a young to middle-aged adult with chronic back pain. This can help distinguish the back pain of ankylosing spondylitis from other forms of back pain, which can help direct therapy. The authors are from Campus Benjamin Franklin in Berlin, the German Rheumatology Research Centre, and the Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet in Herne, Germany.
