The European Spondyloarthropathy Study Group preliminary criteria for the classification of spondyloarthropathy.
Many patients may show some of the features of a SpA (according to the European Spondyloarthropathy Study Group (ESSG) preliminary criteria for the classification of a spondyloarthropathy), (11) but do not have all the features to permit a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.
Of these patients, 183 belonged to three different groups: 74 had RA according to the American Rheumatism Association criteria (9); 67 had psoriatic arthritis (PsA) according to the European Spondyloarthropathy Study Group criteria (10); and 42 had ankylosing spondylitis (AS) according to modified New York criteria (11).
