Demographic and methodologic characteristic differences may explain the large variations in reported spondyloarthritis prevalence rates. In this first systemic literature review on the prevalence of spondyloarthritis (SpA), the researchers searched for original research studies that reported primary prevalence data on SpA or its subtypes, ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), SpA related to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD-SpA), reactive arthritis (ReA) and undifferentiated SpA (uSpA). Their search window was between 1975 and 2014.
