Preliminary questions [20026]

21866 there is some evidence that a systemic arthritic disease may be a factor in the development or worsening of the condition under consideration.

20033 the veteran has had a systemic arthritic disease at some time.

38314  a systemic arthritic disease for Achilles tendinopathy and bursitis means ankylosing spondylitis, Behcet syndrome, crystal-induced arthropathy, enteropathic spondyloarthropathy, psoriatic arthropathy, reactive arthropathy, rheumatoid arthritis or undifferentiated spondyloarthropathy.

20039  the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and VEA service for Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

20046 the veteran had the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, at the time of the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.

20040   the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and VEA service for the clinical onset of Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

20042  the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and operational service for the clinical onset of Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

or

20043  the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and eligible service for the clinical onset of Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

or

7334     the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred after the end of the veteran's last period of VEA service.

7335     the condition under consideration permanently worsened.

20048 the veteran had the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, at the time of the clinical worsening of the condition under consideration.

20041   the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and VEA service for the clinical worsening of Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

20044  the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and operational service for the clinical worsening of Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

or

20045  the veteran has established the causal connection between the systemic arthritic disease and eligible service for the clinical worsening of Achilles tendinopathy or bursitis.

Clinical onset and operational service [20042]

20047  the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, is causally related to operational service.

Clinical onset and eligible service [20043]

20049  the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, is causally related to eligible service.

Clinical worsening and operational service [20044]

20047  the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, is causally related to operational service.

20050 the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred prior to that part of operational service to which the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, is causally related.

Clinical worsening and eligible service [20045]

20049  the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, is causally related to eligible service.

20051 the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred prior to that part of eligible service to which the identified illness or injury, a systemic arthritic disease, is causally related.
