Enthesitis

enthesitis, enthesitis disease
Enthesitis is inflammation of the entheses, the sites where tendons or ligaments insert into the bone12 It is also called enthesopathy, or any pathologic condition involving the entheses The entheses are any point of attachment of skeletal muscles to the bone, where recurring stress or inflammatory autoimmune disease can cause inflammation or occasionally fibrosis and calcification One of the primary entheses involved in inflammatory autoimmune disease is at the heel, particularly the Achilles tendon

It is associated with HLA B27 arthropathies like ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and reactive arthritis34 Symptoms include multiple points of tenderness at the heel, tibial tuberosity, iliac crest, and other tendon insertion sites
