Reunion Island was struck in 2005-2006 by the most severe Chikungunya outbreak (seroprevalence 38% (Gérardin et al., 2013)) in a developed but previously non-immunized country, providing an unique opportunity for studying Chikungunya-related joint symptoms and their long-term evolution. In a previous study, the investigators demonstrated that at least 17/73 patients initially classified as Chikungunya-related inflammatory joint diseases after 40 months still suffered from inflammatory joint symptoms fullfilling validated classification criteria after 13 years (Guillot et al., 2020). However, in this monocentric study, the investigators did not consider the full spectrum of Chikungunya-related rheumatic diseases, the population was not fully representative and the sample size was not sufficient to perform statistical analyses nor identify poor prognosis markers. In the RHUMATOCHIK cohort study, 307 patients were evaluated by 4 rheumatologists 2 months after the infection, 83% and 43% reported persistent joint pain and joint swelling respectively after 32 months in potentially biased telephone interviews (Bouquillard et al., 2018).
In this context, the present study aims at performing a systematic clinical rheumatologic re-evaluation of the RHUMATOCHIK patients after 15 years, in order to precisely describe and classify the full spectrum of persistent Chikungunya-related joint diseases in a larger population.
After a telephone interview and screening questionnaire, these patients will be clinically re-evaluated by a second rheumatologist in a multicenter transversal follow-up study.

- Other: 15 years Follow-up group
Phone recruitment, screening interview and eligibility questionnaire. Patient inclusion during rheumatologic evaluation : questionnaire, examination and data collection in one of the 4 study hospital centers.
- Describe the phenotype of chronic post-Chikungunya rheumatological pictures persisting 15 years after the initial infection [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]The primary outcome is the distribution (%) of rheumatic disease types among the patients with persistent Chikungunya-related rheumatic symptoms after 15 years ie. the percentage of patients fullfilling validated classification criteria of inflammatory rheumatic diseases (Rheumatoid Arthritis (Aletaha et al., 2010), Spondyloarthritis (Dougados et al., 1991; Rudwaleit et al., 2011a), Psoriatic Arthritis (Taylor et al., 2006), RS3PE - or undifferentiated arthritis), or classified in other rheumatic diseases (osteoarthritis, tendinitis, capsulitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, radicular pain, crystal-induced arthritis (Neogi et al., 2015), fibromyalgia (Wolfe et al., 2011)) - at inclusion.
- To describe the phenotype of post-Chikungunya chronic rheumatological pictures that have resolved 15 years after the initial infection. [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]The distribution (%) of rheumatic disease types among the patients with no more Chikungunya-related rheumatic symptoms after 15 years.
- To specify the time of onset in relation to the initial infection of rheumatological pictures initially attributed to Chikungunya. [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]The mean duration (months) of Chikungunya-related rheumatic diseases.
- Timing of onset of rheumatologic symptomatology in relation to CHIKV infection [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]Date of infection, date of onset of rheumatologic symptoms, time between the two (months), average duration (months) of rheumatologic symptomatology attributed to CHIKV infection
- Rheumatological pictures pre-existing the infection [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]Comparison of patients with persistent versus resolving Chikungunya-related rheumatic diseases after 15 years, in order to identify prognostic factors
