Abstract:

Relapsing polychondritis RPC is a rare autoimmune condition of unknown etiology that is characterized by recurrent episodic inflammation that leads to destruction of cartilaginous structures. RPC has been associated with autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Sjogrens syndrome, but rarely ankylosing spondylitis. We describe a young male with ankylosing spondylitis who developed RPC after ear trauma.
