these consist of disease processes of the GI tract as well as forms of arthritis.

reactive arthritis, Irritable bowel disease, Crohn's disease, psoriatic arthritis are all part of the enteropathic arthtropathies. Please note the Differentials also contain disease processes which present with uveitis. msb

three additional genes besides the HLA B27 gene are implicated in Crohn's disease.
