Sacroileitis — an inflammation of a sacroiliac joint. Inflammatory process can extend to a synovial membrane (synovitis), mention joint surfaces (osteoarthritis) or all joint (panarthritis).
The acute purulent sacroileitis begins with fervescence, a fever. Quickly heavy intoxication develops, in blood the leukocytosis, increase in SOE is found. The sharp pains in a sacroiliac joint amplifying at a palpation, pressing on wings of ileal bones and overextension of the lower extremity are locally noted. The patient accepts forced situation with the bent legs.

At an osteoarthritis the joint crack, on the contrary, is narrowed, contours of joint surfaces uneven, are indistinct.
At a subacute current of a purulent sacroileitis beginning of a disease erased. Subfebrile body temperature, unsharp increase in SOE, moderate local morbidity in a sacroiliac joint are noted. Radiological changes come to light sometimes in 2 — 3 weeks. Quite often the disease has a chronic current with frequent aggravations.
Heavy complication of a purulent sacroileitis is formation of purulent zatek with break in a rump and especially in a pelvic cavity. In the presence of zatek palpatorno and at a rectal research painful fluctuating elastic education comes to light. Penetration of pus into sacral openings and the vertebral channel is followed by damage of a spinal cord and its covers.
