Shanshan Zhang1, Dongli Yuan2 and Ge Tan1* 1Department of Neurology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China 2The Institute of Medical Information, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China Primary systemic vasculitis can affect every structure in both the central and peripheral nervous system, causing varied neurological manifestations of neurological dysfunction. Early recognition of the underlying causes of the neurological symptoms can facilitate timely treatment and improve the prognosis. This review highlights the clinical manifestations of primary systemic vasc...

CONCLUSION: The visual prognosis of an eye with scleritis varies with the subtype of scleral inflammation. In our cohort, it was found to be poorer in eyes with necrotizing scleritis with inflammation compared to other subtypes. PMID: 30412434 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We carried out microscopic examination of a biopsied specimen suspected of being Wegener’s granulomatosis, IgG4-related disease, or malignant lymphoma. Finally we diagnosed a rheumatoid nodule because his medic...

ObjectiveTo estimate the annual incidence, prevalence, and mortality of antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody (ANCA)–associated vasculitis (AAV) and its subsets, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) (GPA), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA), and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Churg‐Strauss) (EGPA), in a US‐based adult population. MethodsAll medical records of patients with a diagnosis of, or suspicion of having, AAV in Olmsted County, Minnesota from January 1, 1996 to December 31, 2015 were reviewed. AAV incidence rates were age‐ and sex‐adjusted to the 2010 US white population. Age‐ a...

Authors: Cao Y, Zhang W, Wu J, Zhang H, Zhou H Abstract Peripheral ulcerative keratitis (PUK) is type of crescent-shaped inflammatory damage that occurs in the limbal region of the cornea. PUK is always combined with an epithelial defect and the destruction of the peripheral corneal stroma. PUK may have a connection to systemic conditions, such as long-standing rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Wegener granulomatosis (WG), relapsing polychondritis, classic polyarteritis nodosa and its variants, microscopic polyangiitis, and Churg-Strauss syndrome. However, the most common connection is ...

ObjectiveWe investigated the relationships between glucocorticoid use, disease activity, and changes in body mass index (BMI) in patients with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody–associated vasculitis (AAV). MethodsWe analyzed AAV patients enrolled in the Rituximab in AAV trial. Glucocorticoid use, BMI, and disease activity were measured regularly during the trial period. We performed mixed‐effects regressions to examine the associations of time‐dependent cumulative average glucocorticoid use and disease activity with changes in BMI over time, while adjusting for potential confounders. ResultsThe mean &plu...

Authors: Rose C, Holl-Ulrich K Abstract A particular diagnostic situation in the classification of a granulomatous dermatitis results when no circumscribed granulomas but instead a diffuse interstitial histiocytic inflammatory infiltrate, a granulomatous vasculitis or a neoplastic lymphocytic infiltrate is found. Interstitial granulomatous dermatitis was originally described in patients with arthritis. Later, it was recognized that there are also associations with other usually immunological diseases. Differentiating between interstitial granulomatous dermatitis and the interstitial form of...

ObjectiveTo characterize the early disease course in childhood‐onset antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)–associated vasculitis (AAV) and the 12‐month outcomes in children with AAV. MethodsEligible subjects were children entered into the Pediatric Vasculitis Initiative study who were diagnosed before their eighteenth birthday as having granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's), microscopic polyangiitis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Churg‐Strauss), or ANCA‐positive pauci‐immune glomerulonephritis. The primary outcome measure was achievement of disease remission (Pediatric Vasculiti...
