dc.description.abstractPart 2 of the article. Bone marrow oedema may be seen alone or surrounding bone erosions and is considered to be a potentially reversible phenomenon. Histologic studies of joint replacement specimens have shown that bone marrow oedema corresponds to inflammatory cellular infiltrates in the bone marrow, representing osteitis. Bone marrow oedema is considered to be a very early marker of inflammation, given that its presence correlates with increased levels of acute phase reactants (erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein) and the clinical stage of disease activity. Bone marrow oedema is also closely related to the degree of synovitis and has been associated with subsequent erosive damage; as a result, it is currently considered to be a ‘forerunner’ of erosions.en_GB
