Reactive arthritis - view of the feet

Reactive arthritis is a disease which classically consists of inflammation of the joints (arthritis), urethra (urethritis), and eye. Reactive arthritis frequently includes skin manifestations and is thought to be triggered in some people by an infection. This is a fairly typical rash on the feet associated with Reiter syndrome. This type of rash may also appear on the hands.
