A form of necrotizing non-granulomatous inflammation occurring primarily in medium-sized ARTERIES, often with microaneurysms. It is characterized by muscle, joint, and abdominal pain resulting from arterial infarction and scarring in affected organs. Polyarteritis nodosa with lung involvement is called CHURG-STRAUSS SYNDROME.
Inflammation of any one of the blood vessels, including the ARTERIES; VEINS; and rest of the vasculature system in the body.
INFLAMMATION of any ARTERIES.
Widespread necrotizing angiitis with granulomas. Pulmonary involvement is frequent. Asthma or other respiratory infection may precede evidence of vasculitis. Eosinophilia and lung involvement differentiate this disease from POLYARTERITIS NODOSA.
A multisystemic disease of a complex genetic background. It is characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels (VASCULITIS) leading to damage in any number of organs. The common features include granulomatous inflammation of the RESPIRATORY TRACT and kidneys. Most patients have measurable autoantibodies (ANTINEUTROPHIL CYTOPLASMIC ANTIBODIES) against neutrophil proteinase-3 (WEGENER AUTOANTIGEN).
Skin diseases affecting or involving the cutaneous blood vessels and generally manifested as inflammation, swelling, erythema, or necrosis in the affected area.
A primary systemic vasculitis of small- and some medium-sized vessels. It is characterized by a tropism for kidneys and lungs, positive association with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), and a paucity of immunoglobulin deposits in vessel walls.
A heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by inflammation and necrosis of the blood vessel walls.
Inflammation of the connective and adipose tissues surrounding the KIDNEY.
Administration of high doses of pharmaceuticals over short periods of time.
Autoantibodies directed against cytoplasmic constituents of POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES and/or MONOCYTES. They are used as specific markers for GRANULOMATOSIS WITH POLYANGIITIS and other diseases, though their pathophysiological role is not clear. ANCA are routinely detected by indirect immunofluorescence with three different patterns: c-ANCA (cytoplasmic), p-ANCA (perinuclear), and atypical ANCA.
Death and putrefaction of tissue usually due to a loss of blood supply.
Disorder characterized by a vasculitic syndrome associated with exposure to an antigen such as a drug, infectious agent, or other foreign or endogenous substance. Its pathophysiology includes immune complex deposition and a wide range of skin lesions. Hypersensitivity or allergy is present in some but not all cases.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
Formation of an infarct, which is NECROSIS in tissue due to local ISCHEMIA resulting from obstruction of BLOOD CIRCULATION, most commonly by a THROMBUS or EMBOLUS.
Pathological processes of the TESTIS.
Pathological outpouching or sac-like dilatation in the wall of any blood vessel (ARTERIES or VEINS) or the heart (HEART ANEURYSM). It indicates a thin and weakened area in the wall which may later rupture. Aneurysms are classified by location, etiology, or other characteristics.
A branch of the celiac artery that distributes to the stomach, pancreas, duodenum, liver, gallbladder, and greater omentum.
A condition characterized by the presence of abnormal quantities of CRYOGLOBULINS in the blood. Upon cold exposure, these abnormal proteins precipitate into the microvasculature leading to restricted blood flow in the exposed areas.
A large group of diseases which are characterized by a low prevalence in the population. They frequently are associated with problems in diagnosis and treatment.
The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.
Loose connective tissue lying under the DERMIS, which binds SKIN loosely to subjacent tissues. It may contain a pad of ADIPOCYTES, which vary in number according to the area of the body and vary in size according to the nutritional state.
Diseases of any component of the brain (including the cerebral hemispheres, diencephalon, brain stem, and cerebellum) or the spinal cord.
A glucocorticoid with the general properties of the corticosteroids. It is the drug of choice for all conditions in which routine systemic corticosteroid therapy is indicated, except adrenal deficiency states.
A PREDNISOLONE derivative with similar anti-inflammatory action.
An immunosuppressive agent used in combination with cyclophosphamide and hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), this substance has been listed as a known carcinogen. (Merck Index, 11th ed)
Radiography of blood vessels after injection of a contrast medium.
Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.
Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.

Familial Mediterranean fever--renal involvement by diseases other than amyloid. (1/205)

BACKGROUND: In patients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) renal involvement is usually in the form of AA amyloidosis. There is increasing evidence that renal involvement may be due to diseases other than amyloid as well. METHODS: Amongst 302 children with FMF we observed and followed 28 with typical clinical and laboratory features of vasculitis. The diagnosis of FMF was established according to the Tel Hashomer criteria. RESULTS: Polyarteritis nodosa, protracted febrile attacks and Henoch-Schonlein purpura were diagnosed in 4, 13, and 11 patients, respectively. The presentation was often difficult to distinguish from FMF attacks, but protracted febrile attacks lasting several weeks, hypertension, thrombocytosis, and dramatic responses to corticosteroid therapy that were observed in many cases were different from what is observed in classical FMF. CONCLUSIONS: We suggest that FMF, perhaps as a consequence of impaired control of inflammatory responses, predisposes to vasculitis with renal involvement.  (+info)

Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in patients with connective tissue diseases: the role of hospital experience in diagnosis and mortality. (2/205)

OBJECTIVE: Pneumonia due to Pneumocystis carinii has been increasingly reported in patients with connective tissue diseases, but the frequency of this complication is not known. We sought to determine the frequency of P carinii pneumonia (PCP) in patients with connective tissue diseases, and to determine the role that a hospital's acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related experience may have in the diagnosis of PCP in these patients. METHODS: We used a state hospitalization registry to identify all patients with PCP and either rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Wegener's granulomatosis, polymyositis, dermatomyositis, polyarteritis nodosa, or scleroderma who had an emergent or urgent hospitalization in California from 1983 to 1994. We compared patient and hospital characteristics between these patients and patients with connective tissue diseases hospitalized with other types of pneumonia. RESULTS: Two hundred twenty-three patients with connective tissue diseases were diagnosed with PCP in the 12-year study period. The frequency of PCP ranged from 89 cases/10,000 hospitalizations/year in patients with Wegener's granulomatosis to 2 cases/10,000 hospitalizations/year in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Compared with 5,457 patients with connective tissue diseases and pneumonia due to other organisms, patients with PCP were more likely to be younger, to be male, to have private medical insurance, and to have systemic lupus erythematosus, Wegener's granulomatosis, inflammatory myopathy, or polyarteritis nodosa rather than rheumatoid arthritis, and were less likely to be African American. Hospital size, teaching status, urban/rural location, proportion of admissions due to AIDS or PCP, and proportion of patients with pneumonia undergoing bronchoscopy were each associated with the likelihood of diagnosis of PCP in univariate analyses, but only the number of patients with PCP being treated at a hospital (odds ratio [OR] 1.03 for each additional 10 cases/year, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.01-1.05) was associated with the likelihood of diagnosis of PCP in multivariate analyses. Patients were also somewhat more likely to be diagnosed with PCP if there had previously been a case of PCP in a patient with a connective tissue disease at the same hospital (OR 135, 95% CI 0.98-1.85). In-hospital mortality was 45.7%, and was unrelated to hospital characteristics. CONCLUSION: PCP is an uncommon, but often fatal, occurrence in patients with connective tissue disease. A hospital's prior experience with patients with PCP is associated with the likelihood that this condition is diagnosed in patients with connective tissue diseases who present with pneumonia, suggesting that diagnostic suspicion is an important factor in the correct identification of affected patients.  (+info)

Prevalence of antibodies to human parvovirus B19 nonstructural protein in persons with various clinical outcomes following B19 infection. (3/205)

Persistent infections with human parvovirus B19 (B19) associated with debilitating chronic disease have been described, although evidence linking B19 to these more unusual clinical outcomes has been inconclusive. Recent reports have suggested that the development of antibodies to the B19 nonstructural protein (NS1) following B19 infection might be linked to development of severe arthropathy and chronic infection. To confirm these findings, the C-terminal region of the NS1 protein was expressed for use in Western blot assays for detection of anti-NS1 IgG antibodies in human serum. Among 91 persons tested, 0 of 20 not previously infected with B19, 9(36%) of 25 with past B19 infection, and 5 (12.5%) of 40 with recent B19 infection, had detectable anti-NS1 antibodies. Of 6 persons with chronic B19 infection, 2 had detectable antibodies to NS1. The presence of anti-NS1 antibodies did not appear to correlate with unusual clinical outcomes or chronic B19 infection.  (+info)

No association between neutrophil FcgammaRIIa allelic polymorphism and anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-positive systemic vasculitis. (4/205)

ANCA, implicated as having a pathogenic role in systemic vasculitis, can activate tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)-primed neutrophils by cross-linking surface-expressed ANCA antigens with neutrophil FcgammaRIIa receptors to release reactive oxygen species. The FcgammaRIIa receptor exists as polymorphic variants, R131 and H131, which differ in their ability to ligate human IgG2 and IgG3. Neutrophils homozygous for the FcgammaRIIa-H131 allotype bind more efficiently to IgG3 than the FcgammaRIIa-R131 allotype and are the only human FcgammaR which bind IgG2. Our aim was to determine whether the homozygous FcgammaRIIa-H131 individuals are more susceptible to developing ANCA-associated systemic vasculitis and nephritis due to differential IgG binding and activation. FcgammaRIIa allotype was determined by both allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Southern blotting with allele-specific oligonucleotide probes end-labelled with 32P-gammaATP, after PCR amplification of genomic FcgammaRIIa DNA in 107 Caucasian patients with ANCA+ vasculitis (of whom 89 had renal disease) and 100 ethnically matched controls. Phenotyping of neutrophil FcgammaRIIa alleles was confirmed in some patients by quantitative flow cytometry using murine MoAbs 41H16 and IV.3. Of the patients with ANCA+ systemic vasculitis, 75 had ANCA with specificity for proteinase 3 and 32 with specificity for myeloperoxidase. Overall, no skewing in FcgammaRIIa allotypes was seen in patients compared with controls. No significant increase of the FcgammaRIIa-H131 allotype was found amongst patients irrespective of ANCA specificity, and no association between the FcgammaRIIa allotype and nephritis was found. Our data suggest that the FcgammaRIIa receptor allotype is not a major factor predisposing to the development of ANCA+ systemic vasculitis, or to nephritis.  (+info)

Polyangiitis overlap syndrome with eosinophilia associated with an elevated serum level of major basic protein. (5/205)

Polyangiitis overlap syndrome is a new disease entity and the reported cases in the literature are still limited. We describe a female patient presenting with finger ulcers, skin eruptions, pleural effusion, interstitial pneumonia and eosinophilia. Skin biopsy showed systemic small-sized angiitis and thrombosis. She was diagnosed as having polyangiitis overlap syndrome and was successfully then treated with corticosteroid. It is also of interest that the disease activity was correlated with the number of eosinophils in peripheral blood. The measurement of the serum level of major basic protein released from eosinophils functioning as a coagulant indicated the possible association of eosinophilia with thrombosis and polyangiitis.  (+info)

The incidence and development of periarteritis nodosa in testicular arterioles and mesenteric arteries of spontaneously hypertensive rats. (6/205)

We sought to clarify the incidence, vessel-size and age distribution of periarteritis nodosa in rats occurring as a vascular lesion in malignant hypertension. Stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive and stroke-resistant spontaneously hypertensive rat strains were studied, as well as Wistar-Kyoto control rats. Mesenteric arteries and testicular arteries were examined histologically. Additionally, electron microscopy investigation was carried out on one stroke-prone hypertensive rat and one control. Periarteritis nodosa lesions were present in testicular arterioles in 57.1%, and mesenteric arteries in 28.6%, of stroke-prone hypertensive rats aged 9.5 mo. Lesion incidence at these sites was 100% and 60% respectively in 10 stroke-prone rats aged 15.5 mo, and 42.9% and 28.6% in stroke-resistant hypertensive rats aged 22.5 mo. In contrast, the incidence rate was 0% at both sites in stroke-resistant hypertensive rats aged 8 or 14.5 mo, and in control rats aged 9.5 or 25 mo. In stroke-prone rats, arteritis lesion counts (mean+/-SD) in testicular sections were 11.6+/-17 at age 9.5 mo and 96.3+/-60.9 at age 15.5 mo. In individual lesion scoring, arteritis was more severe in mesenteric arteries than in testicular arterioles. For arteriolar lesion distribution patterns in testicular sections, partial peripheral, partial peripheral plus central, and circumferential patterns were all noted. In conclusion, periarteritis nodosa in hypertensive stroke-prone rats occurs earlier in testicular arterioles, but attains greater severity in the mesenteric artery.  (+info)

Primary renal vasculitis in Norfolk--increasing incidence or increasing recognition? (7/205)

BACKGROUND: The incidence of renal vasculitis has previously been estimated using histological definitions or only a single clinical diagnosis, e.g. Wegener's Granulomatosis (WG). Our hospital is the single referral centre for the former Norwich Health Authority (NHA) which encompasses a stable, homogeneous, well-defined and studied population. We estimated the overall incidence of primary renal vasculitis and the incidence within individual clinical disease classifications. METHODS: All cases of primary renal vasculitis diagnosed within the NHA over 66 months (1992-1997) were identified by review of renal biopsies, the Norfolk Vasculitis Register, hospital discharge summaries and plasmapheresis records. Patients were classified using the 1990 American College of Rheumatology criteria for Polyarteritis Nodosa (PAN), Churg Strauss Syndrome (CSS) and Henoch-Schonlein Purpura; the Chapel Hill Consensus Conference Definitions for Microscopic Polyangiitis (mPA) and the Lanham criteria for CSS. Incidence figures were calculated using the NHA adult population of 413747 (1994). Ninety-five per cent confidence intervals (C.I.) were calculated using the poisson distribution. RESULTS: The overall annual incidence for primary renal vasculitis was 18/million (C.I. 12.9-24.4). The annual incidence of renal involvement of individual diseases was as follows: WG 7.9/million (95% C.I. 4.7-12.5); mPA 7.5/million (95% C. I. 4.4-12.0); PAN 7.0/million (95% C.I. 4.0-11.4); HSP 3.1/million (95% C.I. 1.2-6.3); CSS 1.3/million (95% C.I. 0.3-3.9). CONCLUSIONS: The annual incidence for primary renal vasculitis overall and the individual subtypes in Norfolk is much higher than previous European estimates. This may reflect an increasing incidence in primary renal vasculitis with time or underestimation in previous studies. However the incidence of renal vasculitis in our population is markedly lower than reported in Kuwait. There may therefore be true variation in incidence between populations which could have implications for the aetiology of primary vasculitis.  (+info)

A prospective study of vasculitis patients collected in a five year period: evaluation of the Chapel Hill nomenclature. (8/205)

OBJECTIVE: To test the usefulness of the Chapel Hill nomenclature, supplemented with surrogate parameters, as diagnostic criteria for primary vasculitides. METHODS: To prospectively evaluate vasculitis patients according to a standardised clinical and para-clinical programme. In accordance with the Chapel Hill publication surrogate parameters were used: proteinuria, haematuria and red blood cell casts (glomerulonephritis), angiographic or ultrasonic demonstration of aneurysms or stenoses (arteritis), radiological lung infiltrates or cavitations of more than one month's duration (granuloma in the lungs), bloody nasal discharge or crusts, chronic sinusitis, otitis and/or mastoiditis, bone and/or cartilage destruction, and acute hearing loss (granuloma in upper airways). RESULTS: The following entities were diagnosed: giant cell arteritis (n=14), Takayasu arteritis (n=1), polyarteritis nodosa (n=2), Wegener's granulomatosis (n=27), Churg-Strauss syndrome (n=2), microscopic polyangiitis (n=12), Henoch-Schonlein purpura (n=2), cutaneous leucocytoclastic angiitis (n=37), and secondary vasculitis (n=21). Giant cell arteritis and cutaneous leucocytoclastic angiitis were in all cases diagnosed by biopsy. Using the Chapel Hill nomenclature supplemented with surrogate parameters, only 8 of 27 patients were diagnosed with Wegener's granulomatosis, and 3 of 12 cases with microscopic polyangiitis. The number of patients in the remaining diagnostic entities were considered to few to evaluate. CONCLUSIONS: The Chapel Hill nomenclature, supplemented with surrogate parameters, failed to act as diagnostic criteria in Wegener's granulomatosis and microscopic polyangiitis. The following diagnostic criteria are proposed for Wegener's granulomatosis: (1) Biopsy or surrogate parameter for granulomatous inflammation in the respiratory system and (2) Biopsy verified necrotising vasculitis in small to medium sized vessels or biopsy/surrogate parameter for glomerulonephritis or positive PR3-ANCA test and (3) Lack of eosinophilia in blood and biopsy samples. The following diagnostic criteria are proposed for microscopic polyangiitis: (1) Biopsy verified necrotising vasculitis in small vessels and/or glomerulonephritis with few or no immune deposits and (2) Involvement of more than one organ system as indicated by biopsy verified vasculitis in small to medium sized vessels or surrogate parameter for glomerulonephritis and (3) Lack of biopsy and surrogate parameter for granulomatous inflammation in the respiratory system. Using these criteria all Wegener's patients and 9 of 12 patients with microscopic polyangiitis could be diagnosed.  (+info)

We analyzed the demographic, clinical, laboratory and histologic features of 13 patients who were diagnosed as having polyarteritis nodosa associated with hepatitis B virus infection over a 12-year period, 1974 to 1985. All 13 patients were Yupik Eskimos and resided in southwest Alaska, an area hyperendemic for hepatitis B virus infection. The annual incidence of hepatitis B virus-associated polyarteritis nodosa for this population is 7.7 cases per 100,000 population. All patients presented with multisystem disease, and all had biopsy or angiographic findings consistent with polyarteritis nodosa. All 13 were positive for hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis B e antigen at diagnosis. Two untreated patients and two of five patients who received corticosteroids died, vs. none of six who received corticosteroids plus cyclophosphamide. None of the patients who survived the initial bout of polyarteritis nodosa has relapsed after a mean follow-up of 55 months, but all have become chronic HBsAg ...

Hence, a sequential multidisciplinary diagnostic approach, including thorough dermatologic examination and histologic verification in particular, are warranted in patients suspected of having this condition. The lack of both pathognomonic visceral and/or cutaneous features and specific serologic tests for identifying polyarteritis nodosa explains why making the diagnosis is often delayed. Furthermore, in some patients making the diagnosis is hampered because symptoms are missing or only mildly expressed. We report on a 67-year-old man diagnosed with systemic polyarteritis nodosa whose primary complaints included diplopia, extraordinary muscular pain of the lower extremities, and impaired walking.

Necrotizing vasculitis also called Systemic necrotizing vasculitus (SNV)[1] is a category of vasculitis,[2] comprising vasculitides that present with necrosis.[3] Examples include giant cell arteritis,[4] microscopic polyangiitis, and granulomatosis with polyangiitis. ICD-10 uses the variant necrotizing vasculopathy. ICD-9, while classifying these conditions together, doesnt use a dedicated phrase, instead calling them polyarteritis nodosa and allied conditions. When using the influential classification known as the Chapel Hill Consensus Conference, the terms systemic vasculitis or primary systemic vasculitides are commonly used.[5][6][7] Although the word necrotizing is omitted, the conditions described are largely the same. ...
A 2 year-5 months old girl was referred for intermittent fever and cutaneous erythematous, painful nodular lesions on feet, ankles and pretibial regions. A skin biopsy showed a necrotizing non-granulomatous vasculitis. Diagnosis of cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa was made and treatment with methotrexate (MTX), prednisone and ibuprofen was started. One year later, due to insufficient response, MTX was switched to azathioprine. We obtained a good clinical control in 4 months, thus NSAIDs and steroids were progressively stopped. At an 8 months follow-up, laboratory test were all in the normal range, except for progressive hypogammaglobulinemia (IgA and IgM, 29.4 mg/dl; and 28 mg/dl; IgG= 571 mg/dl). Immunological tests showed: IgG2 deficiency (42 mg/dl) total white count at lower limits, with lymphopenia (21.6%); lymphocyte subpopulations showed deficiency of CD19+ B cells (3%, normal values: 6-25%) and a poor response to protein vaccines. Due to the 1-year persistent remission on therapy, AZA was ...

All patients initially treated with systemic corticosteroids alone: optional IV methylprednisolone pulse (15 mg/kg) at treatment start followed by oral prednisone (1 mg/kg/day) according to a tapering schedule. Treating physicians allowed to treat minor relapses with corticosteroids without referring the patient for randomization, as long as the prednisone dose did not exceed 0.5 mg/kg for 1 month.. Patients in whom prednisone doses could not be tapered below 20 mg, those who failed to enter remission and those who relapsed were randomized to receive either 6 months of oral azathioprine (2mg/kg/day) or 6 cyclophosphamide pulses (0.6g/m2 D1, D15, D30 then every month) ...

To the editor: Drs. White and Schambelan (1) reported in the February 1980 issue two cases of hypertension with hyperreninemia complicating systemic necrotizing vasculitis. In one case, hypertension was easily controlled with captopril during the time that evidence of healing of renal vasculitis was obtained, likely due to cyclophosphamide and prednisone. Therefore, the authors advocated the use of captopril as an effective antihypertensive agent in such patients. Because hypertension was present, however, in the initial stages of the disease, some degree of hypertension control related to improvement in the underlying disease process cannot be fully ruled out. Indeed, Fauci and ...

Considerable therapeutic advances for the treatment of vasculitis of the young have been made in the past 10 years, including the development of outcome measures that facilitate clinical trial design. Notably, these include: a recognition that some patients with Kawasaki Disease require corticosteroids as primary treatment combined with IVIG; implementation of rare disease trial design for polyarteritis nodosa to deliver the first randomised controlled trial for children; first clinical trials involving children for anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) vasculitis; and identification of monogenic forms of vasculitis that provide an understanding of pathogenesis, thus facilitating more targeted treatment. Robust randomised controlled trials for Henoch Schönlein Purpura nephritis and Takayasu arteritis are needed; there is also an over-arching need for trials examining new agents that facilitate corticosteroid sparing, of particular importance in the paediatric population since glucocorticoid
Disappointment in the long-term treatment of rheumatic diseases with cortisone and allied steroids has stimulated a search for newer compounds. Two of these compounds are metacortandracin and metacortandralone, which were recently reported as being of value in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis by Bunim et al.1 They recently made preliminary observations on the antirheumatic and anti-inflammatory potency of these synthetic steroids. The structural formula of metacortandracin and metacortandralone and their close relationship to cortisone and hydrocortisone are noted in the figures below. Studies2 indicated that these compounds possessed three times the activity of cortisone and twice the activity of hydrocortisone, ...
The incidence and characteristics of pulmonary haemorrhage in a series of 89 patients with systemic vasculitis were analysed. Pulmonary haemorrhage occurred in 32 of these patients and was associated with haemoptysis in all 32, alveolar shadowing in the chest radiograph in 28, and a significantly raised transfer coefficient in 30. Pulmonary haemorrhage usually resolved with treatment by immunosuppressive drugs but was the cause of death in 11 patients. In contrast with patients with antibasement membrane antibodies there was no correlation between pulmonary haemorrhage and cigarette smoking. Pulmonary haemorrhage is a cause of serious morbidity in patients with systemic vasculitis.
Visual deterioration occurs in two peaks. The first peak manifests as progression of the ongoing flare on an unchanged steroid dose, typically during the first 6 days.25 The second peak occurs after weeks or months of tapering treatment. Relapses increase with reduction of corticosteroid therapy and were seen in 19% of patients within 1 year.26. Reasons for progression of visual loss despite treatment may include hypoperfusion of the optic disc, treatment delay, inadequate steroid dose, quick taper or hypercoagulability with retinal artery infarction, possibly due to steroid therapy. Continuation of arteritis despite adequate corticosteroid dose may be considered part of the spectrum of TA or may even be a separate disease entity.. Differential diagnoses mimicking TA include systemic lupus erythematodes, Sjögrens syndrome, rheumatoid arthritits, Behcets disease, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, polyarteritis nodosa, Churg-Strauss syndrome, Wegeners granulomatosis and other rheumatic ...
Fleuret C, Kupfer-Bessaguet I, Prigent S, Hutin P, Staroz F, Plantin P. Source Service de dermatologie, CHIC de Cornouaille, 29000 Quimper, France. [email protected] Abstract INTRODUCTION: Periarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a form of vasculitis affecting the small and medium-sized arteries. Below, we report a case of cutaneous PAN relapsing in streptococcal infections over a period of 30 years and progressing towards systemic vasculitis. CASE REPORT: A 35-year-old man was hospitalised for a retro-pharyngeal access associated with fever, arthralgia, myalgia and inflammatory subcutaneous nodules. Peripheral neurological signs were also seen with deficiency of the elevator muscles in the right foot. Examination of a biopsy from a nodule showed a characteristic image of PAN. Following drainage of the abscess, a favourable outcome was obtained with antibiotics and systemic corticosteroids. History taking showed that the patient had presented similar episodes since the age of 5 years involving ...
Heart disease responsive to steroids is well described in many disorders, including sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, polyarteritis nodosa, myocarditis and Churg-Strauss syndrome. The underlying disorder is often obvious and the response is usually slow. We describe a woman who had severe left ventricular failure, cardiac dilatation and pericardial effusion which were rapidly rectified by steroid therapy. Steroid withdrawal led to recurrence of signs, which were reversed by recommencing steroids. The aetiology was not determined.

RITA brings together the leading European centers with expertise in diagnosis and treatment of rare immunological disorders. GOSH is a key member of RITA, and is involved in all 3 RITA subthemes for children.. Each of these 3 subthemes complement each other. The rationale for this, and the subsequent challenges posed can be summarised using a specific example:. Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare medium vessel vasculitis previously considered a complex disease was likely autoimmune aetiology. Recently, it has been discovered that some patients develop PAN due to recessive or compound heterozygous mutations in CECR1, the gene encoding adenosine deaminase type 2. This mutation causes dysregulation of monocyte biology and excessive proinflammatory cytokine production including excess TNF alpha. It is becoming increasingly apparent that targeting TNF alpha is therapeutically beneficial, but does not address other aspects of the disease including the associated immunodeficiency. Since Gene therapy ...
Deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 (DADA2) is caused by biallelic deleterious mutations in CECR1. DADA2 results in variable autoinflammation and vasculopathy (recurrent fevers, livedo reticularis, polyarteritis nodosa, lacunar ischemic strokes, and intracranial hemorrhages), immunodeficiency and bone marrow failure. Tumor necrosis factor-a blockade is the treatment of choice for the autoinflammation ... read more and vascular manifestations. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) represents a potential definitive treatment. We present a cohort of 14 patients from 6 countries who received HSCT for DADA2. Indication for HSCT was bone marrow dysfunction or immunodeficiency. Six of 14 patients had vasculitis pre-HSCT. The median age at HSCT was 7.5 years. Conditioning regimens were myeloablative (9) and reduced intensity (5). Donors were HLA-matched sibling (n 5 1), HLA-matched unrelated (n 5 9), HLA-mismatched unrelated (n 5 3), and HLA haploidentical sibling (n 5 1). All patients are ...
Researchers have confirmed a powerful association between autoimmune diseases and venous thromboembolism, in a study covering the adult population of Sweden. Adults admitted to hospital with any one of 33 different autoimmune diseases at any time between 1964 and 2008 had a significantly higher risk of pulmonary embolism than the general population in fully adjusted analyses. Risks were highest in the first year after admission and seemed to fall over time, possibly because treatment helped control the inflammatory processes thought to create a procoagulant state, say the authors.. Standardised incidence ratios for pulmonary embolism were highest in the year after admission for immune thrombocytopenic purpura (10.79, 95% CI 7.98 to 14.28), polyarteritis nodosa (13.26, 9.33 to 18.29), polymyositis or dermatomyositis (16.44, 11.57 to 22.69), systemic lupus erythematosus (10.23, 8.31 to 12.45), and ulcerative colitis (10.26, 9.03 to 11.62). Other common autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid ...
Objective: Deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 (DADA2) is an autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disorder associated with ADA2 mutations. We aimed to investigate the characteristics and ADA2 enzyme activities of patients with DADA2 compared to non-DADA2 patients. Methods: This is a descriptive study of 24 patients with DADA2 who were admitted to the Adult and Pediatric Rheumatology, Pediatric Haematology, and Pediatric Immunology Departments of Hacettepe University. All ADA2 exons were screened by Sanger sequencing. Serum ADA2 enzyme activity was measured by modified spectrophotometric method. Results: Twenty-four patients with DADA2 were included: 14 with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN)-like phenotype (Group 1); 9 with Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA)-like features, and 1 with immunodeficiency (Group 2). Fourteen PAN-like DADA2 patients did not have the typical thrombocytosis seen in classic PAN. Inflammatory attacks were evident only in Group 1 patients. Serum ADA2 activity was low in all patients ...
