Description

The etiology of arthritis in Hyaenidae has been a subject of conjecture. While osteoarthritis has been considered, the observation of an erosive arthritis prompted a systematic survey of museum specimens to define its nature and frequency. Spondyloarthropathy was a common erosive arthritis present in all species of Hyaenidae. Present at twice the frequency of osteoarthritis, it is a significant health consideration.
