Caption

Skin in Reiter's syndrome. Close-up of skin lesions on the elbow of a 40 year old male patient with Reiter's syndrome. This condition is also known as reactive arthritis, because it causes joint inflammation as a reaction to a bacterial infection. The bacteria most commonly associated with Reiter's syndrome is Chlamydia trachomatis, which causes the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia. Other body parts, including the skin, muscles and eyes, can also be affected. Reiter's syndrome is a rare disease, that only affects people with a susceptible tissue type. Inflamed joints are treated with anti-inflammatory drugs. Patients can also develop psoriasis-like skin lesions (seen here).
