Within the last few years, the study of ankylosing spondylitis has produced some of the more remarkable new developments in the field of the rheumatic diseases. In modern days the disease has been described in Germany by Strümpell and in France by Marie. As a result, in Germany it is known as Strümpell's disease and in France as Marie's disease. Physicians in the United States and England, to be fair, call it Marie-Strümpell disease. It should be emphasized at this point that ankylosing spondylitis is not a variant of rheumatoid arthritis as it had been considered for a number of years. The term rheumatoid spondylitis is still occasionally used but should be completely abandoned.
