Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic form of arthritis that affects 1 in 200 adults (over 1 million sufferers in the USA alone). AS can affect the spine, shoulders, hips and knees, and is prevalent in young men. Though its cause is not yet fully known, it is considered to be (in most cases) genetically inherited. No cure has yet been found for the disease, however, early diagnosis and proper medical management can be important in reducing the risk of disability and deformity.

Ankylosing spondilitis is a chronic form of arthritis known to affect around 1 in 200 people (over 1 million sufferers in the USA alone). No cure has yet been found for the disease, however, early diagnosis and proper medical management can be important in reducing the risk of disability and deformity. Ankylosing spondilitis: the facts is the first mass market book to be published on this important disease. It provides clear and accessible information on treatment, diagnosis, genetic counselling, and daily life with this illness. Professor Khan is one of the leading experts in the world on AS, while also suffering from it. This combination of scientific knowledge and personal experience of a debilitating disorder results in a unique book which will prove invaluable for sufferers wishing to know more about their condition, and those that share their lives.
