Abstract

Six cases of Reiter's syndrome are reported. All had severe arthritis and keratosis blennorrhagica unsuccessfully managed by penicillin, antimalarials, and/or systemic corticoids. Folic acid antagonists proved effective in controlling the cutaneous manifestations. The joint symptoms, however, proved more recalcitrant in some of the cases.
