In brief: Arthritic condition
Ankylosing spondylitis is a severe disorder that causes fusion of the vertebrae in the spine.
The bones are brittle and easily broken. Commonly called "bamboo spine", the spine is prone to fracture.

In brief: Inflammatory spine
Ankylosing spondylitis (as) is an inflammatory form of arthritis that tends to strike the low back and sometimes the hips.
In severe or long-duration cases, the vertebrae in the spine can begin to fuse together. Some patients are very significantly helped by medication.
