urethritis - inflammation of the urethra (cramps during urination, mucus), arthritis - inflammation of the joints (of pain, swelling, difficulty in movement), conjunctivitis - inflammationeye mucosa (eyelid edema, photophobia, lacrimation).In patients who were examined at me with this syndrome, in addition to Chlamydia I "found" Trichomonas.Reiter's syndrome leads to disability.Treatment is prescribed in addition to dermatologist and ophthalmologist rheumatologist.Generally always shows screening for urogenital infections, if diagnosed arthritis, especially in individuals at a young age, because this syndrome may be incomplete (eg arthritis + urethritis).
