In the occurrence of polyarthritis, infection, impaired immunity and genetic predisposition are of primary importance . It has been established that the socalled reactive polyarthritis in a number of intestinal infections (yersinosis, salmonellosis, possibly brucellosis) are observed mainly in individuals with certain genetic characteristics of the immune system in the presence of the histocompatibility antigen (HLA B27) . This antigen is found much more often than in populations also in ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter’s disease and psoriatic polyarthritis .
