Abstract

Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) have demonstrated more arthritides with their longer life expectancy. The most common presentations have been that of an episodic arthritis or a hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. However, other arthropathies have been associated with CF. We now describe 3 new patients with CF and arthritis, and review the types of arthritis that may be found in patients with CF. This report is to increase awareness of the arthropathies that may be found in patients with CF so that proper evaluation, classification, and treatment may be facilitated.
