Abstract

The ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a systemic and chronic inflammatory osteoarticular disease of unknown etiology. Depending of its activity and gravity, the AS modifies patient's quality of life, leading to different levels of physical, social, economic and/or physicological incapacity. Consequently, it is difficulty to quantify and assess the disease, basing only on clinical or laboratorial parameters. Since the beginning of 90's various instruments to verify the different problems showed by patients with AS have been described, contributing to quantify the disease. We present a review of these different instruments of clinical measurement.
