The natural history of Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), the chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause which mainly affects the axis skeleton, includes the progressive stiffening of the spine with ankylosis (fusion) of some or all the spinal articulations. It occurs in approximately two thirds of all patients a few years after of the beginning of illness (1.1; 2.1).
