2.Ankylosing spondylitis ( Diseases of spine)

Ankylosing spondylitis is a condition of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints. The sacroiliac joints are located at the base of the low back where the sacrum meets the iliac bones of the pelvis. In these areas like around the spine, including the neck, middle back, lower back, and buttocks causes pain and stiffness present.The symptoms are worse in the early morning.Over time, chronic inflammation of the vertebrae may grow or fuse together resulting in a rigid spine, a process referred to as ankylosis. Ankylosis causes loss of mobility of the spine.Ankylosing spondylitis is also a systemic disease so it can affect tissues throughout the body, it can cause inflammation and injury to other joints away from the spine manifest as arthritis, as well as to other organs like the eyes, heart, lungs, and is two to three times more common in men than in women in adolscent.

The HLA-B27 gene can be detected in the blood of most patients with ankylosing spondylitis.

X-ray tests of the spine or sacroiliac joint can demonstrate signs of inflammation and erosion of bone. X-rays of the spine can progressively demonstrate straightening, "squaring" of the vertebrae and end-stage fusion of one vertebra to the next (ankylosis). Fusion up and down the spine can lead to a "bamboo spine" appearance on X-ray tests with complete loss of mobility.
