Jill M Ellis
Acute monoarthritis affects a single joint and has many potential underlying causes, including crystal deposition diseases, infection, trauma, and osteoarthritis. A comprehensive health history and physical examination can help narrow the list of differential diagnoses; judicious diagnostic testing can help pinpoint the diagnosis. Clinicians also must be able to recognize which patients require emergency referral to prevent long-term adverse consequences.

This condition most often occurs secondary to laryngopharyngeal reflux. Prognosis generally is good after treatment is initiated; however, often because of a misunderstanding of the clinical course and potential causes, patients with paroxysmal laryngospasm can go untreated. This article describes paroxysmal laryngospasm, similarly presenting diseases, and treatment strategies...
