Synopsis: 
In this study, we evaluated femoral cartilage thicknesses of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Our results indicate that AS patients seem to have thicker femoral cartilage, which could be related to anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) treatment.

The Editor,

Sir,

A 55-year-old man was seen for severe neck pain, numbness in his right upper limb and right shoulder limitation for the last 2-3 weeks. His medical history revealed hyperlipidaemia, smoking (10 packs/year) and diabetes mellitus (DM) Type II. He had also been hospitalized for diabetic ketoacidosis one month ago.
