SOUSA, Ana Elisabete Simões de et al. Reiter's syndrome: a case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.3, pp. 323-330. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962003000300009.

A case of Reiter's disease is reported in a young male showing typical dermatological lesions and positive finding for the HLA-B27 antigen histocompatibility complex. The condition arose following enteric infection with Salmonella enteritidis. Remission followed treatment with tetracycline, prednisone and indomethacin. The relapse of disease was treated with methotrexate. A review of clinical, physiopathologic and laboratory findings of Reiter's syndrome are presented.

Keywords : Reiter Disease; Salmonella enteritidis.
