II. Pathophysiology

  1. Joint degeneration from loss of proprioception
  2. Often affects weight bearing joints (knee or ankle)

IV. Symptoms

  1. Relatively painless in contrast to severe deformity

V. Signs

  1. Loss of joint contour
  2. Great joint instability and Hypermobility

VI. Imaging

  1. Severe joint degeneration

Ontology: Neurogenic arthropathy (C0003892)

Definition (MSH) Chronic progressive degeneration of the stress-bearing portion of a joint, with bizarre hypertrophic changes at the periphery. It is probably a complication of a variety of neurologic disorders, particularly TABES DORSALIS, involving loss of sensation, which leads to relaxation of supporting structures and chronic instability of the joint.
