It is a long standing inflammatory autoimmune disease. Mostly severe, chronic pain, and in more advanced cases, spine fusion can cause. The cells of Immune system and natural cytokines have been suggested to be critical in the pathogenesis of AS, especially in the human leukocyte antigen and the interleukin axis. The pathogenesis of this ankylosing spondylitis disease is not found clearly. In all over India around half percent of patients which is affected by these disease they shows the bowel inflammation in bowel and hence it is confirmed that the real origin of the disease could be in these stomach of our body.
