Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


SAPHO syndrome is a chronic rheumatologic disorder that involves the skin, bone, and joints. The name SAPHO is an acronym for the primary manifestations associated with this disorder: Synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis. It is listed by the National Institutes of Health as a rare disease, but it is an important one for physicians to include in their differential diagnosis for acne as it is often misdiagnosed and under-recognized.
