Retroperitoneal fibrosis is an uncommon inflammatory condition in which the retroperitoneal tissue is transformed into a tight sheet of fibrous tissue. It can occur in association with various diseases, including rheumatic conditions. We report a new case in a 66-year-old man with spondyloarthropathy. Nine similar cases have been reported. Axial manifestations predominated, and half the patients carried the HLA-B27 antigen. The relation between retroperitoneal fibrosis and spondyloarthropathy remains controversial.
