Abstract

The incidence of Reiter's syndrome in a predominantly white, community‐based population is reported. The age‐adjusted annual incidence rate for males younger than age 50 was 3.5 per 100,000. No female cases were identified. Over time, a greater proportion of cases have been identified among younger males. In 63% of the patients, either a prolonged or relapsing disease course occurred.
