Spondyloarthropathies are a heterogeneous group of morbid conditions, characterized by familiarity, by their association with specific HLA and by extra-articular localisations. In the present article the different morbid conditions, their most recent pathogenetic hypotheses and their diagnostic criteria are described in detail. Indications for treatment with biological agents are also discussed.
