In our study, the normality of the contralateral sacroiliac joint
was an important argument for the sensitivity of signs we described.
Resting Thickness of Latissimus Dorsi of Healthy Control was 13.04+-2.25mm, among Sacroiliac Joint
Dysfunction Ipsilateral was 12.12+-1.67mm and opposite thickness was 8.69+-1.13mm.
If there are no neurological signs or symptoms in patients of sciatica or radicular pain, other sources of pain such as sacroiliac joint

The radiographic exam of the pelvis pointed out a condensation of the right sacroiliac joint
reflecting unilateral sacroiliitis (Figure 1).
The patient was provisionally diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis at the age of 39 years during a routine x-ray which showed changes in the spine and the sacroiliac joint
. He had no peripheral signs of the illness such a uveitis, skin rashes, any gastrointestinal illness, or joint pain other than that at the sacroiliac joint
The first issue that is progression of sacroiliac joint
damage and osteoproliferation has already been discussed in a section above ("Inherent Difficulties in the Early Diagnosis of AS").
The incidence of Sacroiliac joint
(SI joint) dysfunction in patients with back pain may range from 15 to 30%  and lumbar facet joints may account for 15 to 40% of back pain .
