Abstract

This article reviews, through illustrative cases, five rheumatic diseases associated with drug treatments: statins and myopathy, quinolones and tendinopathy, viscosupplementation and pseudoseptic arthritis, diuretics and gout, barbiturates and adhesive capsulitis. Due to the rarity of such cases, we lack validated therapeutic recommendations. Announcement to the adverse drug reaction reporting system is the best way to enhance our knowledge and to improve the public health.
