Reiters Syndrome

Reiter syndrome is a collection of symptoms but generally has three main features: arthritis, genitourinary tract symptoms and conjunctivitis. Lesions of the skin and mucous membranes also develop in some patients.

Some or all of these symptoms usually occur 1-3 weeks after an infection of the genitourinary tract or bacterial gastrointestinal infection causing diarrhoea. The arthritis is sometimes referred to as reactive arthritis, which means that the arthritis occurs as a reaction to an infection that started somewhere else in the body.
