Although rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are among the most common rheumatic diseases, reports of patients who had a combination of both diseases are rare. There are no one classification criteria to diagnose the coexistence of both. This coexistence is a rare presentation that has an implication on the patient management. We are presenting the case of a 69-year-old male who had an unusual combination of AS and RA manifestations and we reviewed similar cases that previously reported to see what the features of those cases are and how can this combination affect the patient management.
