A neurovascular syndrome associated with compression of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS; SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY; and SUBCLAVIAN VEIN at the superior thoracic outlet. This may result from a variety of anomalies such as a CERVICAL RIB, anomalous fascial bands, and abnormalities of the origin or insertion of the anterior or medial scalene muscles. Clinical features may include pain in the shoulder and neck region which radiates into the arm, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of brachial plexus innervated muscles, PARESTHESIA, loss of sensation, reduction of arterial pulses in the affected extremity, ISCHEMIA, and EDEMA. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp214-5).
Conditions characterized by pain involving an extremity or other body region, HYPERESTHESIA, and localized autonomic dysfunction following injury to soft tissue or nerve. The pain is usually associated with ERYTHEMA; SKIN TEMPERATURE changes, abnormal sudomotor activity (i.e., changes in sweating due to altered sympathetic innervation) or edema. The degree of pain and other manifestations is out of proportion to that expected from the inciting event. Two subtypes of this condition have been described: type I; (REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY) and type II; (CAUSALGIA). (From Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)

SAPHO syndrome of the temporomandibular joint associated with sudden deafness. (1/31)

We report a case of arthritis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) associated with sclerosing osteomyelitis of the mandible and temporal bone, causing deafness. The presence of a palmoplantar pustulosis established the diagnosis of SAPHO syndrome. SAPHO (an acronym referring to synovitis, acne, palmoplantar pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) syndrome is defined by the association of characteristic osteoarticular and dermatologic manifestations, with diffuse sclerosing osteomyelitis of the mandible being a part of this entity. We review the literature of SAPHO syndrome with mandibular manifestations and discuss the mechanisms of inflammatory spread from the TMJ to the cochlea. To our knowledge, this is the first description of skull base involvement in a patient with SAPHO syndrome leading to sudden deafness.  (+info)

SAPHO syndrome or psoriatic arthritis? A familial case study. (2/31)

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the relationships between SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis) syndrome and the group of spondylarthropathies. METHODS: Few reports of familial SAPHO have been published. We describe three children, two sisters and one brother, whose clinical and radiological presentation was in accordance with SAPHO syndrome. RESULTS: Two children developed psoriasis, and one child palmoplantar pustulosis. Both sacroiliac and sternoclavicular joints were involved in these three cases. Some features in our observations are also common to psoriatic arthritis. No association was found with HLA antigens, but a history of trauma preceding the onset of symptoms was present in all three children. CONCLUSIONS: We can consider that SAPHO is nosologically related to spondylarthropathies. Psoriatic arthritis could be the missing link between SAPHO and spondylarthropathies. It is likely that both genetic and environmental factors are involved.  (+info)

Diagnostic points and possible origin of osteomyelitis in synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome: a radiographic study of 77 mandibular osteomyelitis cases. (3/31)

OBJECTIVES: To find diagnostic points and to identify the origin of osteomyelitis in synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome. METHODS: Fifty-two patients with mandibular suppurative osteomyelitis and 25 patients with mandibular osteomyelitis in SAPHO syndrome were included in the study. Radiographic patterns of the lesion, types of periosteal reaction and the presence of external bone resorption and bone enlargement were investigated in each case and compared between the two entities. RESULTS: Suppurative osteomyelitis demonstrated an osteolytic pattern and a lamellated type of periosteal reaction, whereas SAPHO syndrome revealed a mixed-pattern, solid-type periosteal reaction, external bone resorption and bone enlargement. CONCLUSIONS: Radiographic examination is suggested to be convenient and a useful diagnostic method of differentiating osteomyelitis in SAPHO syndrome from suppurative osteomyelitis. The periosteum is suspected to be the original site of osteomyelitic lesions in SAPHO syndrome.  (+info)

SAPHO syndrome treated with pamidronate: an open-label study of 10 patients. (4/31)

BACKGROUND: In recent years the SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis) has been encountered more frequently. However, clinical evidence indicating superiority of a specific therapeutic modality is still absent. Pamidronate, a second-generation bisphosphonate, has a pronounced effect on bone metabolism by suppressing bone resorption. We report our clinical experience with intravenous pamidronate in SAPHO syndrome. METHODS: Between the years 1999 and 2003 we treated 10 patients with the SAPHO syndrome who did not respond to NSAIDs, oral corticosteroids, colchicine, methotrexate, sulphasalazine or infliximab. All patients were treated with 60 mg pamidronate, given intravenously within an hour. In cases of no response a subsequent dose was given within a month and if there was a partial response an additional infusion was given after 4 months. The primary endpoint was the disappearance of recurrent bouts of bone pain, osteitis or hyperostosis, or recurrent synovitis. Reduction of the frequency of attacks by 50% was regarded as a partial response. RESULTS: Seven of the patients were females and three were males. The age at diagnosis ranged from 26 to 68 yr. All patients had axial or peripheral arthritis and cutaneous involvement; three had severe acne, eight had pustulosis and two had concomitant psoriasis vulgaris. Hyperostosis of the anterior chest wall involving either sternocostal or sternoclavicular joints, as seen on technetium 99 bone scintigraphy, was detected in all patients. Complete remission was observed following therapy in six patients, three others partially responded and only one patient had no response. Two patients needed four cycles of pamidronate infusion, one patient needed three, six needed two infusions and one patient remitted following a single pamidronate infusion. In all but one patient pamidronate was effective in preventing recurrent bouts of pustulosis. CONCLUSION: Pamidronate seems to be a very effective mode of therapy for patients with the SAPHO syndrome, by promoting remission in all components of the disorder, such as bone, joint and skin involvement, and ceases the bouts that characterize this disorder.  (+info)

Pamidronate in the treatment of childhood SAPHO syndrome. (5/31)

BACKGROUND: SAPHO syndrome is increasingly recognized within the paediatric population. Conventional therapeutic approaches have often not been effective. Pamidronate is a second-generation bisphosphonate that affects bone turnover and demonstrates anti-inflammatory properties. In small case series it has given symptomatic relief to adults with this condition. OBJECTIVES: To report the clinical experience with pamidronate in childhood SAPHO syndrome. METHODS: A retrospective observational study of all children with SAPHO syndrome treated with pamidronate between 1996 and 2003 at a tertiary rheumatology centre. The standard dosing regime for pamidronate was 1 mg/kg to a maximum of 30 mg, administered daily for three consecutive days, repeated 3-monthly as required. Response to treatment was determined by clinical observation, patient subjective response and reduction in other treatments RESULTS: Seven girls were treated, with a median (range) age at diagnosis of 11 yr (9-15 yr). All patients demonstrated a beneficial clinical response, with relief of pain, increased activity and improved well-being. Subsequent courses of pamidronate were used in all patients. Other medications including corticosteroids and methotrexate could subsequently be stopped. Transient symptoms were associated with the initial course of pamidronate in some patients. No serious adverse events were reported. CONCLUSIONS: Pamidronate was associated with a marked improvement in function and well-being, and a reduction of pain and use of other medications in all patients, with no significant adverse effects. This study represents preliminary clinical data. A prospective multicentre study is necessary to assess the role and long-term safety of pamidronate in the management of childhood SAPHO syndrome  (+info)

Successful treatment of SAPHO syndrome with zoledronic acid. (6/31)

The SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) is a chronic, relapsing, inflammatory condition with skin and osteoarticular manifestations. Its etiology remains unclear, and various treatment regimens with steroids and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs frequently fail to control the disease, while exposing patients to the side effects of these drugs. Because the SAPHO syndrome manifests as a destructive inflammatory bone disease, use of bisphosphonates that possess antiosteoclastic and probably antiinflammatory properties has been suggested to be helpful. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful treatment with zoledronic acid of SAPHO syndrome that was resistant to conventional treatment.  (+info)

Isolated thoracic spine lesion: is this the presentation of a SAPHO syndrome? A case report. (7/31)

A case of an isolated lesion of the thoracic spine attributed to SAPHO syndrome is presented. A 51-year-old man was referred for inflammatory pain in the thoracic spine. The general examination was normal (especially cutaneous and rheumatologic examinations). Laboratory analysis showed only a mild inflammatory reaction. Standard radiographs showed partial condensation of T8. Computed tomography showed osteolysis of the anterior corner of T8, and MRI revealed an abnormal signal of T8, with enlargement of the prevertebral soft tissue. Percutaneous and thoracoscopic biopsies showed a nonspecific inflammatory process, and cultures were sterile. Initially, several diagnoses were advanced: infectious spondylitis, malignant tumor, lymphomas, Paget disease, seronegative spondyloarthropathies and finally atypical SAPHO syndrome. Three months later, the patient experienced more pain. General examination was still normal. The radiological findings worsened, while the inflammatory blood tests were normal. A new thoracoscopic biopsy revealed a nonspecific inflammatory process. A diagnosis of SAPHO syndrome was made, despite the lack of typical lesions. Dramatically improving with anti-inflammatory therapy, the patient's condition was favorable at 3-year follow-up. This atypical presentation of an isolated lesion in the spine makes the diagnosis of a SAPHO syndrome difficult but possible. Spine surgeons must be aware of this rare entity, to avoid misdiagnosis and unnecessary repeated surgical biopsies.  (+info)

The usefulness of bone remodelling markers in predicting the efficacy of pamidronate treatment in SAPHO syndrome. (8/31)

OBJECTIVES: Pamidronate has recently been used in SAPHO syndrome due to its anti-osteoclastic effect. The aim of this study is to determine the usefulness of bone remodelling markers for determining the efficacy of pamidronate treatment. METHODS: Thirteen patients with SAPHO syndrome were treated with pamidronate. The treatment evaluation was done using a visual analogue scale (VAS) and also erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, serum crosslaps (sCTX) and osteocalcin initially and after 3 months. A relevant clinical response was defined as an improvement in VAS of at least 40%. RESULTS: At 3 months, 7 of 13 patients had a good clinical response, as previously defined. Five of the seven patients maintained the good response over 6 months. Before the first perfusion 6 of the 13 patients had increased sCTX (upper 3250 pmol/l). In this small cohort we tried to analyse whether the increase in bone remodelling markers was associated with a good clinical response. In the responders group the mean levels of sCTX and osteocalcin at baseline were 6783.17 and 24.66, respectively, and in the non-responders group the levels were 2152 and 11.8, respectively. There was a significant difference in sCTX between the responders and the non-responders (P = 0.0044). CONCLUSION: Infusion of pamidronate is effective in SAPHO in some patients. Increased sCTX might be a prognostic marker for a good clinical response but results have to be confirmed in a larger cohort.  (+info)

Synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome is an inflammatory clinical condition with aseptic bone lesions and characteristic skin manifestations. A 63-year-old woman presented with vague musculoskeletal symptoms including chronic buttock pain. The clinical work-up revealed multiple spine and osteoarticular involvement. Multilevel bone marrow edema and cortical erosions involving the spine, asymmetric sacroiliitis, and osteosclerosis of the sternoclavicular joint were consistent with a diagnosis of SAPHO syndrome. Considering SAPHO syndrome in the differential diagnosis, subsequent skin inspection revealed plantar pustulosis. Despite the unique feature of accompanying skin and skeletal lesions, skin lesions could be overlooked if not suspected. ...

Palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) is a chronic recurrent skin condition characterized by the presence of pustules, erythema and hyperkeratosis on palms and soles. PPP can be a severe and disabling disease limiting the ability to walk or work. Although studies on the quality of life of patients with PPP are not available, a recent investigation showed that palmoplantar psoriasis (non pustular) has a more important impact on quality of life than plaque psoriasis. This important impact on quality of life is not surprising as palmoplantar psoriasis as well as palmoplantar pustulosis may limit the ability to work or conduct activities with hands or even impair walking. The disease is sometimes associated with psoriasis elsewhere on the body. Current treatments for PPP include topical corticosteroids, cyclosporine, PUVA therapy, methotrexate and acitretin. Response to topical corticosteroids and PUVA therapy is often disappointing presumably because the thickness of the stratum corneum on palms and soles ...

Recent findings about the pathogenesis of pustulosis palmaris et plantaris (PPP), also known as palmoplantar pustulosis, suggest that IL-17 expression in the acrosyringium as well as infiltration of IL-17 positive cells, e. g. Langerhans cells may play important roles. However, to date, it has not been established whether circulating IL-17 related cytokines are involved in PPP. We studied the circulating IL-17 related cytokines as well as the mRNA levels in lesional skin. IL-17 related cytokine mRNAs were increased in the PPP lesions compared with the control tissues (five patients vs five controls). The serum levels of TNF-alpha, IL-17, IL-22 and IFN-gamma also were significantly increased in PPP, but not IL-23 and IL-8 (48 patients vs 20 controls). Our findings document that not only the serum IL-17 but also tissue IL-17 are elevated in PPP and may be in the pathogenesis of this disorder.. ...

Pustular psoriasis (PP) is a group of inflammatory skin conditions characterized by infiltration of neutrophil granulocytes in the epidermis to such an extent that clinically visible sterile pustules develop. Because of clinical co-incidence, PP is currently grouped with psoriasis vulgaris (PV). However, PP and PV are phenotypically different, respond differently to treatments and seem to be distinct on the genetic level. In contrast to PV, the phenotypes of PP are not well defined. Descriptions of each form of PP are discordant among standard dermatology textbooks [Saurat Dermatologie 2016, Rooks Dermatology 2016, Fitzpatricks 2012 and Braun-Falco 2012], encumbering the collection of phenotypically well-matched groups of patients as well as clinical trials ...

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a form of degenerative arthritis characterized by excessive bone growth along the sides of the vertebrae of the spine. Also known as Forestier disease, DISH causes stiffness in the upper back, and may also affect the neck and lower back. Some people experience DISH-associated inflammation and calcification (bone growth) at other areas of the body where tendons and ligaments attach to bone, such as at the heels, ankles, hips, shoulders, elbows, knees and hands. The exact cause of DISH remains unknown, although risk factors such as age, gender, long-term use of certain medications and chronic health conditions have been identified ...

True drug-induced psoriasis tends to occur in a de-novo fashion in patients with no family or previous history of psoriasis. Practolol is the prototype cardioselective beta blocker, which is no longer available due to the high incidence of cutaneous side effects reported, including psoriasiform eruptions and exacerbations of pre-existing psoriasis. Reports of lithium-provoked psoriasis in the literature include new onset of pustular psoriasis, palmoplantar pustulosis, erythroderma, psoriasiform dermatitis, psoriatic arthropathy, and psoriasis involving the nail and scalp. The refractory period for the development of psoriatic lesions after the initiation of lithium treatment is variable and ranges from a few weeks to several months. It can affect any part of the body, but usually occurs on the scalp, elbows, knees, lower back and genitals, often in the same place on both sides of the body. It can also occur in the fingernails or toenails. Pustular psoriasis is characterized by small pus-filled ...

Did you know the American tobacco companies have a list of 599 additives used to make cigarettes? The big five US cigarette companies (American Tobacco Company, Brown and Williamson, Liggett Group, Inc., Philip Morris Inc. and R.J.
