    C. A type of joint inflammation that is limited specifically to synovial joints
    D. A type of join inflammation that can spread through the bloodstream to other joints.
  35. What is a variety o arthritis brought about by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in and around joint capsules, especially in the feet.
