Historically this disease, and especially ankylosing spondylitis (also known as axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) with x-ray damage) was thought to affect men more commonly than women. However, over the last decade as we recognize the disease earlier and in patients without the classic damage seen on x-ray, we realize this disease is actually equigender.
We offer a wide variety of resources for members of the spondylitis community, physicians and others who are interested in learning more about spondylitis.
