Abstract

Most of the destructive joint disease necessitating arthoplasty is the result of an insidious and protracted process that occurs over the course of many years. However, there are a variety of diseases that may result in a rapid progressive deterioration of a joint. We describe both the common and less common etiologies of rapidly destructive arthropathy that one should consider, with imaging examples, and present discriminative factors when present.
