ABSTRACT
Pustulotic arthro-osteitis, first described by Sonozaki, is a relatively rare disorder. Its prevalence is however probably underestimated in dermatological literature. Early recognition of the signs can prevent misdiagnosis. We describe a Turkish patient who presented with palmoplantar pustulosis and involvement of the sternoclavicular joint and peripheral oligoarthritis.

Figure 3: Whole-body bone scintigram

Mentions: Laboratory findings showed an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) of 120 mm/h (normal <20 mm/h) and C-reactive protein (CRP) of 6.44 mg/dL (normal<0.8 mg/dL). Serum was negative for rheumatoid factor and antinuclear factor, and anti-dsDNA, anti-Ro, anti-La, and anti-Sm antibodies were not present. HLA typing was negative for HLA-B51, 52, and 27. Biochemical screening showed no abnormality. A technetium-99m diphosphonate-labeled scintigram of bones revealed abnormal focal increases in tracer uptake in the right sternoclavicular and left ankle joints [Figure 3] Although x-ray of the wrist and the sternocostoclavicular region revealed soft tissue swelling, there was no ossification of the sternocostoclavicular region. There were bone erosions on the knees, hands, ankles, and elbows. A computed tomography scan showed sclerosis of the sacroiliac joints
