Filariasis is a world health problem that is frequently seen in tropical and subtropical countries. In endemic areas, the clinical spectrum of extremity swelling, lymphangitis, or elephantiasis is usually recognized as filariasis. In the United States, diagnosis of the disease may be more difficult because of lack of familiarity with this infection. We present a case of filaremic anthropathy of the ankle joint and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of this disease. It is the first reported case of MRI findings in a human patient. MRI has been done on animal models with filariasis, and the findings are similar. (AU)

Two cases of acute rupture of the knee joint are described. The use of arthrography in diagnosis is demonstrated, and the aetiology and management briefly discussed (AU)

The radiographic changes in nine cases of chondrolysis of the hip joint are described. The series consists of eight Negro girls and one Indian girl, whose ages ranged from eleven to eighteen years. The incidence of periarticular osteoporosis, joint space narrowing, erosion of articular cortex, femoral head enlargement, increase in width of the femoral neck and growth plate narowing are reported. The difficulty in the diagnosis of chronic monarticular disease of the hip is stressed and the observed changes are discussed with particular reference to monaticular rheumatoid arthritis. The material presented supports the view that `chondrolysis of the hip' is a distinct entity (AU)

The clinical and haematological features of 90 Jamaican patients with haemoglobin SC disease are reviewed. Mean haemoglobin levels indicated mild anaemia although individual haemoglobin levels were often within the normal range. The clinical features were qualitatively similar to those of homozygous sickle cell disease(SS disease) although they were generlly less frequent and of lesser severity. Ocular pathology was an exception, occuring more frequently in SS disease even in age-sex-matched groups. There is some evidence that the higher haemoglobin level in SC disease may be aetiologically related to retinal vascular disease. (AU)

Idiopathic calcification of articular cartilages is described in a Jamaican woman of thirty-one years who had intermittent joint pains for ten years and who had evidence of past gonococcal infection. She was otherwise normal. The etiology of the condition is unknown. Previous literature is reviewed. (Summary)

Little information exists of the incidence of bone and joint disease in the tropics. For this reason the conditions seen tend to be neglected as they behave differently from the same conditions in temperate climes where most of the doctors have been trained. Knowledge of their frequency is essential for teaching purposes and to plan clinical research. This survey has been made by keeping a list of the diagnosis of every new out-patient seen during 1954 and 1955, a total of 4,500 cases. The traumatic cases are not of particular interest and have not been analysed. Although the incidence of rare conditions is perhaps higher than in a general hospital, it is not unduly out of proportion as many such cases have been referred from medical and paediatrics clinics and have not been included. Tuberculosis is common and usually responds well to conservative treatment once the elements of malnutrition is corrected. Yaws seems to be dying out rapidly. Gonococcal arthritis is common. Rheumatoid arthritis, Stills disease and ankylosing spondylitis are fairly common, considerably more so than was at first thought. Osteoarthritis mainly affects synovial membrane and is relatively uncommon in the hip but quite common in the knee. Severe cases are unusual and usually are secondary to some obvious long-standing abnormality. Foot troubles are rare except for club feet which are of similar incidence to other countries. The knee ligaments are frequently strained but a meniscus tear is very unusual. Shoulder degenerative changes are very common. Spondylosis is relatively common and accounts for a proportion of paraplegics, most of which do not present at an Orthopaedic Clinic. Disc lesions in the lumbar region are common, only very few are severe enough to warrant surgery. Certain congenital lesions not seen elsewhere occur particularly around the knee. The ostoechondritis juveniles group is common. Bone lesions of sickle cell disease are common and frequently go undiagnosed. Neoplasms are of a similar incidence to that seen in temperate regions.
