Conclusion

Peripheral manifestations, especially enthesitis, dactylitis and arthritis are inherently manifestations of SpA. Peripheral SpA  can present to non rheumatologists and in these cases can be often misinterpreted and under-diagnosed by radiologists.Unexplained on going pain in a peripheral joint containing fibrocartilage should prompt the radiologist to check for imaging findings related to undiagnosed SpA.

Our pictorial review emphasises the importance of radiological assessment of extra-axial joints with findings of enthesitis and not forget SpA, prompting early rheumatology referral.
