The recent treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with hormones has stimulated interest in a group of similar conditions of unknown etiology. Among the latter is Reiter's syndrome, characterized by the occurrence of urethritis, conjunctivitis and arthritis.
During the past five years 23 young adult white males with the clinical picture of Reiter's syndrome have been observed in the Minneapolis Veterans Administration Hospital. Our observations concerning the epidemiology, etiology and therapy of the disease do not agree with many statements in the literature concerning Reiter's syndrome. For that reason the present report has been prepared.
