Abstract

Four males with characteristic foot manifestations of HLA-B27-related arthropathy are reported. The severity of this problem and its recalcitrance to standard therapies led to the use of local radiotherapy. The beneficial outcome and minimal short-term side effects of this treatment are discussed in relation to previous experience with radiotherapy in ankylosing spondylitis.
