Association of the inflammatory state in active juvenile rheumatoid arthritis with hypo-high-density lipoproteinemia and reduced lipoprotein-associated platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activity. (1/962)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between the quantitative and qualitative abnormalities of apolipoprotein B (Apo B)- and Apo A-I-containing lipoproteins and between lipoprotein-associated platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) activity in patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) as a function of the inflammatory state. METHODS: Twenty-six JRA patients and 22 age- and sex-matched control subjects with normal lipid levels participated in the study. Fourteen patients had active disease, and 12 had inactive disease. Plasma lipoproteins were fractionated by gradient ultracentrifugation into 9 subfractions, and their chemical composition and mass were determined. The PAF-AH activity associated with lipoprotein subfractions and the activity in plasma were also measured. RESULTS: Patients with active JRA had significantly lower plasma total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels as compared with controls, due to the decrease in the mass of both the HDL2 and HDL3 subfractions. Patients with active JRA also had higher plasma triglyceride levels, mainly due to the higher triglyceride content of the very low-density lipoprotein plus the intermediate-density lipoprotein subfraction. The plasma PAF-AH activity in patients with active JRA was lower than that in controls, mainly due to the decrease in PAF-AH activity associated with the intermediate and dense low-density lipoprotein subclasses. The lipid abnormalities and the reduction in plasma PAF-AH activity were significantly correlated with plasma C-reactive protein levels and were not observed in patients with inactive JRA. CONCLUSION: This is the first study to show that patients with active JRA exhibit low levels of HDL2 and HDL3 and are deficient in plasma PAF-AH activity. These alterations suggest that active JRA is associated with partial loss of the antiinflammatory activity of plasma Apo B- and Apo A-I-containing lipoproteins.  (+info)

Modular variations of the human major histocompatibility complex class III genes for serine/threonine kinase RP, complement component C4, steroid 21-hydroxylase CYP21, and tenascin TNX (the RCCX module). A mechanism for gene deletions and disease associations. (2/962)

The frequent variations of human complement component C4 gene size and gene numbers, plus the extensive polymorphism of the proteins, render C4 an excellent marker for major histocompatibility complex disease associations. As shown by definitive RFLPs, the tandemly arranged genes RP, C4, CYP21, and TNX are duplicated together as a discrete genetic unit termed the RCCX module. Duplications of the RCCX modules occurred by the addition of genomic fragments containing a long (L) or a short (S) C4 gene, a CYP21A or a CYP21B gene, and the gene fragments TNXA and RP2. Four major RCCX structures with bimodular L-L, bimodular L-S, monomodular L, and monomodular S are present in the Caucasian population. These modules are readily detectable by TaqI RFLPs. The RCCX modular variations appear to be a root cause for the acquisition of deleterious mutations from pseudogenes or gene segments in the RCCX to their corresponding functional genes. In a patient with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, we discovered a TNXB-TNXA recombinant with the deletion of RP2-C4B-CYP21B. Elucidation of the DNA sequence for the recombination breakpoint region and sequence analyses yielded definitive proof for an unequal crossover between TNXA from a bimodular chromosome and TNXB from a monomodular chromosome.  (+info)

Assessment of bone mineral density in adults with a history of juvenile chronic arthritis: a cross-sectional long-term followup study. (3/962)

OBJECTIVE: To assess bone mineral density (BMD) and bone turnover in adults with a history of juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) or persistent JCA, and to identify predictors of reduced BMD. METHODS: Sixty-five white patients (mean age 32.2 years) with a history of JCA and 65 age-, sex-, height-, and weight-matched healthy control subjects participated in the study. Densitometry of the left hip and the lumbar spine was performed, and osteocalcin (bone formation marker) and crosslinks (bone resorption marker) were measured. In addition, bone-related clinical parameters were assessed in the JCA group. RESULTS: BMD in the hip and lumbar spine was significantly lower in the JCA group than in the controls. Levels of osteocalcin and crosslinks were significantly increased in the JCA group. According to WHO definitions, significantly more subjects in the JCA group had "osteopenia" and "osteoporosis" than would be expected in a normal population sample. Active disease at the time of the study (1996-1997), baseline erosions evaluated in 1979, Steinbrocker functional class in 1996-1997, polyarticular course of JCA, and history of systemic steroid treatment for more than 1 year were significantly associated with reduced BMD. In linear regression analysis including both the JCA and control groups, presence of JCA proved to be the factor most strongly associated with reduced BMD, explaining approximately 20% of its variation. CONCLUSION: Reduced BMD and evidence of increased bone turnover suggest that JCA patients may be at risk of developing premature osteoporosis and associated fractures later in life. The data are consistent with the concept that BMD in JCA is determined by many factors.  (+info)

Molecular fingerprinting reveals non-overlapping T cell oligoclonality between an inflamed site and peripheral blood. (4/962)

We have demonstrated a stable expansion of CD8+ T cells in the peripheral blood of a child with chronic arthritis. The expanded TCRBV family (TCRBV14) was enriched for CD57hiCD28- T cells. Sequencing of the TCRBV14 amplification products showed a TCR sequence which contributed 32% of the total TCR in the CD8+TCRBV14 population. Using the modified heteroduplex technique, the CD8+TCRBV14 cells showed a clonal pattern and these bands were restricted to the CD28- population. This method also detected multiple other clones within the CD8+ population but few in the CD4+ cells. The dominant TCRBV14+ clone was not detectable in synovial fluid T cells from two inflamed joints by CDR3 length analysis or heteroduplex probing, suggesting that this long-lived clone is excluded from inflammatory sites. Synovial fluid T cells showed an unexpected discordance of the CD28 and CD57 phenotype compared to peripheral blood mononuclear cells. T cells from both inflamed joints both showed marked oligoclonality in all TCR families and had almost identical heteroduplex patterns. Taken together these data suggest that some clones are actively excluded from inflamed sites in juvenile chronic arthritis, yet the pattern of restricted T cell expansion is shared between sites of inflammation.  (+info)

Absence of association between interleukin 1 alpha and oligoarticular juvenile chronic arthritis in UK patients. (5/962)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether interleukin 1 alpha (IL-1alpha) polymorphisms are associated with UK oligoarticular juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA). PATIENTS AND CONTROLS: A well-characterized population of 164 UK Caucasian oligo-JCA patients and a control panel of 173 unrelated healthy UK Caucasian individuals. METHODS: The IL-1alpha promoter mutation at -889 was examined using a polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) assay. The cases and controls were also genotyped for an IL-1alpha intronic microsatellite repeat. RESULTS: No association was observed between IL-1alpha polymorphisms and UK oligoarticular JCA patients. In particular, no association between IL-1alpha polymorphisms and chronic anterior uveitis was found. CONCLUSIONS: IL-1alpha is not associated with oligoarticular JCA in UK patients. This differs markedly to findings for IL-1alpha in Norwegian JCA patients.  (+info)

Responsiveness of outcome measures in juvenile chronic arthritis. Italian Pediatric Rheumatology Study Group. (6/962)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the responsiveness of the disease activity measures more commonly used in juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) clinical trials. METHODS: Data were obtained from an open-label, non-controlled, multicentre trial designed to investigate the efficacy of methotrexate (MTX) in children with JCA. Outcome measures, including physician and parent global assessments, functional ability measures, articular variables, and laboratory indicators of systemic inflammation, were assessed at baseline and after 6 months of MTX treatment in 132 patients. Responsiveness of endpoint variables was evaluated by assessing the effect size (ES) and the standardized response median (SRM). RESULTS: Physician and parent global assessments were the more responsive instruments, showing ES and SRM above 1.0. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, functional status measures and articular variables showed intermediate responsiveness. Morning stiffness, haemoglobin and platelet count were the least responsive instruments. CONCLUSION: The results of our analysis indicate that subjective estimations of the disease activity, either by the physician or parents, are the most responsive instruments in the assessment of the therapeutic response in children with JCA. The responsiveness of outcome measures in JCA should be further investigated in prospective controlled studies.  (+info)

Assessment of mutilans-like hand deformities in chronic inflammatory joint diseases. A radiographic study of 52 patients. (7/962)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate patients with mutilans-like hand deformities in chronic inflammatory joint diseases and to determine radiographic scoring systems for arthritis mutilans (AM). METHODS: A total of 52 patients with severe hand deformities were collected during 1997. A Larsen hand score of 0-110 was formed to describe destruction of the hand joints. Secondly, each ray of the hand was assessed individually by summing the Larsen grade of the wrist and the grades of the MCP and PIP joints. When the sum of these grades was > or = 13, the finger was considered to be mutilated. A mutilans hand score of 0-10 was formed according to the number of mutilans fingers. Surgical treatment and spontaneous fusions were recorded. RESULTS: The study consisted of 22 patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA), nine with rheumatoid factor (RF) positive and 13 with RF negative arthritis, 27 patients with RF positive RA, and three adult patients with other diagnoses. The mean age of patients with adult rheumatic diseases was 27 years at the onset of arthritis. The mean disease duration in all patients was 30 years. The mean Larsen hand score was 93. Four patients had no mutilans fingers and in 15 patients all 10 fingers were mutilated. The Larsen hand score of 0-110 and the mutilans hand score of 0-10 correlated well (rs = 0.90). Fourteen patients showed spontaneous fusions in the peripheral joints. A total of 457 operations were performed on 48 patients. CONCLUSION: Both the Larsen hand score of 0-110 and the mutilans hand score of 0-10 improve accuracy in evaluating mutilans-like hand deformities, but in unevenly distributed hand deformities the mutilans hand score is better in describing deformation of individual fingers.  (+info)

Polymorphic haplotypes of the interleukin-10 5' flanking region determine variable interleukin-10 transcription and are associated with particular phenotypes of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. (8/962)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the distribution of the interleukin-10 (IL-10) 5' flanking region haplotypes in children with arthritis and in controls, and to investigate the functional significance of each haplotype. METHODS: Sequence-specific oligonucleotide probing was used to determine haplotype frequency. Transient transfection studies were used to investigate the transcription of reporter genes driven by each haplotype. Whole blood cultures were performed to assess IL-10 production by each genotype. RESULTS: Patients with arthritis involving >4 joints were more likely to have a genotype with an ATA haplotype than those whose arthritis remained restricted to <4 joints. This ATA haplotype was associated with lower transcriptional activity than the GCC haplotype (P = 0.02), and the ATA/ATA genotype was associated with lower IL-10 production under lipopolysaccharide stimulation than other genotypes (P < 0.02). CONCLUSION: The results of this study demonstrate the functional significance of the ATA haplotype and reveal a significant association of genotypes containing this haplotype with extended oligoarthritis.  (+info)

Hip replacement is often performed in patients with juvenile arthritis when their joints have been severely damaged by the disease. A study at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) finds that the procedure is an excellent option to alleviate pain and improve function in juvenile arthritis patients under age 35 when conservative treatments fail to provide relief. The study, to be presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting on March 24, found that total hip replacement (THR) lasted at least 10 years in 85 percent of patients, and 20 years in 50 percent of patients. When the implant wears out or is no longer viable, juvenile arthritis patients generally have a revision surgery, or second hip replacement. An estimated 300,000 children in the United States have been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis, technically known as juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) or juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The disease is diagnosed before age 16 and often persists into adulthood. It ...

From Ethan Berkovitz. My name is Ethan Berkovitz, I am a 16-year-old high school sophomore and my favorite sports are soccer and futsal, a type of indoor soccer with five players per team. I play on the U.S. Youth Futsal 16-and-under National Team, and this summer I got to compete and represent our country in Costa Rica. I have been playing soccer since I was 3 years old - and I have juvenile arthritis.. I didnt always have juvenile arthritis. It all started when I was 8 years old, when I started having pain in my legs, hands and wrists. I thought I was having growing pains, but it got worse and worse in just a few short months. I couldnt even walk down the stairs, or to the bus stop, so my dad had to carry me. Sometimes, I didnt make it to school because I didnt feel very well and I would get fevers, so I felt really sick. I loved playing all kinds of sports back then with my friends and I was on lots of different teams. I also would ride my bike, skateboard, rollerblade and much ...
Pediatric patients with systemic‑onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SOJIA) may be treated with tacrolimus. However, the therapeutic range for tacrolimus is narrow with considerable inter‑ and intra‑individual variability, making it difficult to formulate an ideal dosage regimen for personalized treatment. The purpose of the present study was to set up a population pharmacokinetics (PPK) model of tacrolimus treatment for SOJIA to determine the optimal initial dosage. Patients with SOJIA were analyzed using non‑linear mixed‑effects modeling. Different regimens were analyzed using Monte Carlo simulation with concentration profiles. A first‑order absorption and elimination one‑compartment model was selected as the most appropriate model for SOJIA. Based on initial dosage recommendations, the regimen of 0.5 mg every 24 h (q24h) appeared to be most suitable for subjects with a body weight of 5 kg, while the 0.5 mg q12h regimen was most suitable for subjects with a body weight of ...

Families often seek multiple medical opinions and post on social media about their frustrations. This linguistic analysis observed the changing language patterns and social media posting behaviors of parents in the time leading to, during, and after SJIA diagnosis. Methods:
Juvenile arthritis comprises a variety of chronic inflammatory diseases causing erosive arthritis in children, often progressing to disability. These children experience functional impairment due to joint and back pain, heel pain, swelling of joints and morning stiffness, contractures, pain, and anterior uveitis leading to blindness. As children who have juvenile arthritis reach adulthood, they face possible continuing disease activity, medication-associated morbidity, and life-long disability and risk for emotional and social dysfunction. In this article we will review the burden of juvenile arthritis for the patient and society and focus on the following areas: patient disability; visual outcome; other medical complications; physical activity; impact on HRQOL; emotional impact; pain and coping; ambulatory visits, hospitalizations and mortality; economic impact; burden on caregivers; transition issues; educational occupational outcomes, and sexuality.

lymphadenopathy), liver (hepatomegaly), or spleen (splenomegaly).. Oligoarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (also known as oligoarthritis) is marked by the occurrence of arthritis in four or fewer joints in the first 6 months of the disease. It is divided into two subtypes depending on the course of disease. If the arthritis is confined to four or fewer joints after 6 months, then the condition is classified as persistent oligoarthritis. If more than four joints are affected after 6 months, this condition is classified as extended oligoarthritis. Individuals with oligoarthritis are at increased risk of developing inflammation of the eye (uveitis).. Rheumatoid factor positive polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (also known as polyarthritis, rheumatoid factor positive) causes inflammation in five or more joints within the first 6 months of the disease. Individuals with this condition also have a positive blood test for proteins called rheumatoid factors. This type of arthritis closely ...

Neutrophils from onset sJIA patients showed an activated phenotype, reflected by higher ex vivo cell membraneexpression of FC-gamma receptors (CD32 and CD64), markers of secretory vesicles (CD35) and specific granules (CD66b). ROS production and degranulation were also enhanced in onset sJIA. Neutrophil phenotypenormalized when patients were in remission. In contrast to the hyperactivated status of neutrophils in active sJIA, PBMCs from these patients produced less Il-1b, IL-18, IL-6 and TNF-a upon TLR-stimulation compared to PBMCs from remission patients or HDs, suggesting tolerance after exposure to high TLR4 stimulating S100-levels in vivo. ...
Objective: A Th1 biased immune response in synovial fluid has been reported in children with polyarticular and extended oligoarticular-type juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). We investigated T cell phenotypes including Th1, Th2, Th17, and Treg with emphasis on Th17 and Treg, in order to differentiate cytokines in the enthesitis-related arthritis (ERA) form of JIA. Methods: The frequencies of Th1, Th2, Th17, and Treg cells were determined by flow cytometry in peripheral blood (PB) and synovial fluid from patients with ERA and healthy subjects. Levels of interleukin 1β (IL-1β ), IL-6, IL-21, IL-23, and transforming growth factor β (TGF-β ), cytokines that influence Th17 lineage cells, were measured in paired plasma and synovial fluid (SF) samples by ELISA. Frequencies are expressed as percentages and cytokine levels as pg/ml. Results: There were no differences in blood samples in the frequency of Th1, Th2, Th17, and Treg cells between patients and controls. In paired samples, the median ...
Researchers report in Nature Genetics that they have increased the number of confirmed genes linked to juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) from 3 to 17 - a finding that will clarify how JIA fits into the spectrum of autoimmune disorders and help identify potential treatment targets. Published online on April 21, 2013, the study involves an international research team that analyzed 2,816 JIA cases recruited from more than 40 pediatric rheumatology clinics. It was the largest collaborative patient population of JIA to date, including patient DNA samples from across the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom, according to Susan Thompson, Ph.D., a researcher in the Division of Rheumatology at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center who was a leader for the study. These findings will help us understand how the long suspected genetic contributions to JIA are driving the disease process, with the ultimate goal being earlier and improved diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Thompson said. JIA is ...
Children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) have a higher risk of cancer than children without JIA. The increased risk does not appear to be due to arthritis medications, but additional research is warranted. These results were published in Arthritis and Rheumatism.. Similar to adults with arthritis, children with JIA experience joint pain, swelling, tenderness, and stiffness. The condition affects an estimated 294,000USchildren under the age of 17.. Drugs known as TNF inhibitors may be used to treat arthritis in children and adults, but these drugs have been linked with a possible increase in the risk of certain types of cancer.. To explore cancer risk among children with JIA, researchers used US Medicaid records to identify 7,812 children with JIA. The cancer risk in these children was compared with the cancer risk in a large group of children without JIA. The children without JIA were selected from among children with either asthma or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.. For the ...

At the center of the comic book is Alex. His story is that of a typical young boy, about how he spent time with his friends and the adventures they shared throughout their childhood. Alex, however, was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) at 14 years old. In my case, besides the inherent challenges of being a teenager, the biggest one in mine and my familys life was being diagnosed with this disease, says Alex. We were all surprised and as a family experienced lots of different emotions - denial, frustration, worry and anxiety - because it was something unknown, because we had no idea how to react, because we couldnt believe that our lives were going to change for ever. At first, I wasnt able to do any sports, and later on, I was unable to walk.. Born out of a collaboration between the Autoimmune Diseases Patient Association (APAA) and Roche Pharma Romania, a comic book was developed to educate and inspire other children with JIA and their families. It has been distributed ...
COPENHAGEN -- Children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis continued to respond to abatacept (Orencia) for up to 30 months, researchers said here.
The aim was to develop prediction rules that may guide early treatment decisions based on baseline clinical predictors of long-term unfavorable outcome in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). In the Nordic JIA cohort, we assessed baseline disease characteristics as predictors of the following outcomes 8 years after disease onset. Non-achievement of remission off medication according to the preliminary Wallace criteria, functional disability assessed by Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire (CHAQ) and Physical Summary Score (PhS) of the Child Health Questionnaire, and articular damage assessed by the Juvenile Arthritis Damage Index-Articular (JADI-A). Multivariable models were constructed, and cross-validations were performed by repeated partitioning of the cohort into training sets for developing prediction models and validation sets to test predictive ability. The total cohort constituted 423 children. Remission status was available in 410 children: 244 (59.5%) of these did not achieve remission

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a severe hyperinflammatory syndrome induced by activated macrophages and cytotoxic T cells. HLH manifests recurrent fever, cytopenia, liver dysfunction, and a sepsis-like syndrome that may complicated by multiple organ failure. While HLH is rarely genetic (primary) and seen in children; the more frequent secondary (acquired) form is seen adults. The journal Blood, has a review on the diagnosis and management of pediatric and adult patients with HLH.. Secondary HLH is commonly results from infections, malignancies and autoinflammatory/autoimmune disorders, amongst which systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (Stills disease) is the most common cause.. Macrophage activation syndrome (MAS; or MAS-HLH) is HLH arising in autoinflammatory/autoimmune disorders, amongst which systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (Stills disease) is the most common cause.. Criteria for HLH in children may not apply well to adult cases. Another challenge in HLH may be ...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is an uncommon, potentially life threatening, hyper inflammatory syndrome of diverse etiologies. Cardinal signs include prolonged fever, organomegaly, and persistent unexplained cytopenias. In spite of the well known diagnostic criteria put forth by HLH society, this continues to pose great diagnostic challenge in both pediatric and adult intensive care settings. We describe 4 adult (2 males, 2 females, aged 19, 29, 40, and 17 years) and 3 pediatric (2 males, 1 female, aged 1 month, 6 months, and 12 years) patients with secondary HLH who satisfied the HLH-2004 diagnostic criteria. Definite evidence of hemophagocytosis was noted in 4 patients on initial bone marrow examination. The underlying etiologies were as follows: Rickettsia tsutsugamushi (case 1), autoimmune disorder (case 2), systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA) (case 3), unknown bite (possibly a venomous snake) (case 4), Plasmodium vivax (case 5), Cytomegalo virus (case 6), and ...
The objective was to evaluate the clinical and laboratory manifestations and outcomes of the MAS cases in the context of systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SJIA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Kawasaki disease, poly-articular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (PJIA). Twenty consecutive patients diagnosed with MAS between 2005 and 2016 entered the study. The cases were divided into two groups: in the first, MAS emerged in the context of a previously diagnosed rheumatologic disease, while in the second, MAS was the first presentation of a rheumatologic disease. In the other classification, the cases were divided into recurrent and non-recurrent cases. Laboratory data were recorded at three times: before MAS attack, during MAS attack, and 1 month after discharge from hospital. Nineteen cases with the median age of 5.9 (3.6-10) years entered the study. Four cases (21.1%) showed recurrent attacks of MAS. MAS was the first presentation of disease in 10 cases. The median age of the patients in ...
Although the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) may be involved in ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatic arthritis, and Behçets disease and participates in the systemic inflammatory process of arthritis, it is often neglected during routine rheumatologic clinical examinations. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to report etanercept treatment in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) with SCJ involvement. In this study, we describe an unusual case of a child with juvenile idiopathic arthritis with an initial presentation of sternoclavicular mass. The patient (age, 14 years 10 months) presented with an insidious onset atraumatic swelling of the left SCJ and complained of right hip and bilateral ankle tenderness without an apparent cause. Initial ultrasonography indicated a heterogeneous mass in the left SCJ, while computed tomography identified mild swelling of the left SCJ with a thickened synovial lining, mild bone erosion, and some turbid fluid. The patient ultimately underwent left SCJ
Inflammatory eye disease (uveitis) can develop as a complication in children who have juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Children and adults who have JIA can develop cataracts, glaucoma, corneal degeneration (band keratopathy), or vision loss.. The incidence of eye disease is 2 to 34 out of 100 children who have JIA.footnote 1 It is most common in oligoarticular and RF-negative polyarticular forms of the disease. Eye disease associated with JIA often has no symptoms, although blurred vision may be an early sign. To prevent eye problems from progressing to the point that vision loss occurs, regular eye examinations by an ophthalmologist are very important for children who have JIA. Eye disease develops in about 30 out of 100 children who have oligoarticular JIA, particularly children who have a positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) test result.footnote 2. Early detection and treatment of inflammatory eye disease gives a child the best chance of a good outcome. Discuss the appropriate examination ...
Background/Purpose: Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS) is a life-threatening systemic inflammatory syndrome that complicates several rheumatic diseases. Current MAS-related serum biomarkers (ferritin, neopterin, CD163, and CD25) mark active disease but normalize with quiescence and may lack specificity. Serum IL-18 elevation has been associated with many inflammatory and infectious diseases, but extremely high levels have been reported in Stills Disease and Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, particularly in patients with a history of MAS.. Methods: We measured serum levels of several cytokines across a complex cohort of patients with idiopathic or genetically-defined autoinflammatory diseases (NCT00059748). Samples were obtained from healthy adults (24 patients) and children (4), and patients with cryopyrinopathies (Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease/NOMID (18) and Muckle-Wells Syndrome (1)), NLRC4-MAS (2), Non-infectious Osteomyelitis (3), Deficiency of IL-1 Receptor ...

OBJECTIVE: We describe two 3-year-old patients with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SJIA) who developed hepatitis A-associated macrophage activation syndrome (MAS). One patient showed MAS as the presenting manifestation of SJIA, while MAS complicated SJIA during the second year of the disease course in the other child. Both girls presented with fever, jaundice, hepatosplenomegaly, neurological involvement, mucosal hemorrhage, and purpura. Cytopenias, hypofibrinogenemia, and hemophagocytosis confirmed the diagnosis. After aggressive treatment with high-dose corticosteroids and immunosuppressants one patient entered remission while the other one died. Hepatitis A virus may induce severe MAS in SJIA. ...

There are many causes of leg length discrepancy. Some include, A broken leg bone may lead to a leg length discrepancy if it heals in a shortened position. This is more likely if the bone was broken in many pieces. It also is more likely if skin and muscle tissue around the bone were severely injured and exposed, as in an open fracture. Broken bones in children sometimes grow faster for several years after healing, causing the injured bone to become longer. A break in a childs bone through the growth center near the end of the bone may cause slower growth, resulting in a shorter leg. Bone infections that occur in children while they are growing may cause a significant leg length discrepancy. This is especially true if the infection happens in infancy. Inflammation of joints during growth may cause unequal leg length. One example is juvenile arthritis. Bone diseases may cause leg length discrepancy, as well. Examples are, Neurofibromatosis, Multiple hereditary exostoses, Ollier disease. Other ...

Introduction. This study aimed to assess the genetic determinants of poor outcome in Portuguese patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Methods. Our study was conducted in Reuma.pt, the Rheumatic Diseases Portuguese Register, which includes patients with JIA. We collected prospectively patient and disease characteristics and a blood sample for DNA analysis. Poor prognosis was defined as CHAQ/HAQ ,0.75 at the last visit and/or the treatment with biological therapy. A selected panel of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with susceptibility was studied to verify if there was association with poor prognosis. Results. Of the 812 patients with JIA registered in Reuma.pt, 267 had a blood sample and registered information used to define poor prognosis. In univariate analysis, we found significant associations with poor prognosis for allele A of TNFA1P3/20 rs6920220, allele G of TRAF1/C5 rs3761847, and allele G of PTPN2 rs7234029. In multivariate models, the associations with ...

Treatment with Actemra can complicate the diagnosis of macrophage activation syndrome in patients with systemic JIA by masking symptoms, a study reports.
Rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic, autoimmune disease, is the most crippling form of arthritis and affects approximately 1.3 million Americans. This chronic disease is characterized by painful and stiff joints on both sides of the body that may become enlarged and deformed. Rheumatoid arthritis affects more women than men (75 percent of persons with rheumatoid arthritis are women). Onset of the disease is usually middle-age, but it does occur in individuals as early as age 20. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis may also have osteoporosis, a progressive deterioration of bone density.. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) is a form of arthritis in children ages 16 or younger that causes inflammation and stiffness of joints for more than six weeks. Unlike adult rheumatoid arthritis, which is chronic and lasts a lifetime, children often outgrow juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. However, the disease can affect bone development in the growing child.. ...
Lymphedema, a well known extraarticular manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis, has been rarely described in children with idiopathic chronic arthritis. We describe 12 cases of lymphedema and idiopathic arthritis of childhood seen at 4 different pediatric rheumatology centers. Eight patients were girls, 4 boys; the age at appearance of lymphedema ranged from 2.3 to 17 years. In all patients except one, lymphedema was localized to the lower limbs. The outcome of lymphedema was variable, but not always related to the arthritis course, and was mostly independent of any specific therapy. Lymphography was performed in only one patient, and revealed lack of lymphatic drainage in the affected leg. We conclude that the association of lymphedema and idiopathic arthritis of childhood is not rare; this association is unlikely to be coincidental, even though the pathogenetic mechanisms are currently not well understood ...

A significant percent of patients with uveitis caused by childhood rheumatic disease continue to suffer from the ocular condition decades later and also exhibited a risk for additional visual problems such as glaucoma and cataracts, a Swedish study presented at the recent ARVO meeting found.. The forty-year follow-up study included patients who had juvenile idiopathic arthritis and were first seen at the Child Rheumatology section of the University Hospital in Lund, Sweden between 1973 and 1982. Of 350 consecutive patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis, 55 developed uveitis (15.7%). The researchers previously conducted follow ups with the original subjects after seven and 24 years.. In the latest arm of the investigation, researchers reviewed the ophthalmic charts of 30 patients from the last three years. They noted 11 people (20%) from the original investigation had died, although they did not include an investigation of cause of death in their study. The average age of the participants ...

Juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) is a systemic autoimmune disease in children and adolescents characterized by a vasculopathy that primarily affects
Dr. George Still first described Stills Disease in 1897. It is a form of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis that has systemic features. Although it is more commonly found in children, the disorder can be present in adults, where it is known as Adult-Onset Stills Disease. The cause is unknown, but a common symptom of Stills Disease is intermittent high fevers. Salmon-colored skin rash that does not itch is also common. Other physical symptoms include joint pain, fatigue and sore throat. The heart, lungs, spleen and lymph glands may become inflamed.
