An arthropathy is a disease of a joint. Although the terms "arthropathy" and arthritis have very similar meanings, the former is traditionally used to describe the following conditions:

  • Enteropathic arthropathy (M07) is caused by colitis and related conditions.
  • Diabetic arthropathy (M14.2, E10-E14) is caused by diabetes.
  • Neuropathic arthropathy (M14.6) is associated with a loss of sensation.
