We report the case of a 16-year-old Caucasian girl, who complained of headache, dizziness and paresis of the left side of her body. After physical examination and ancillary tests, she was diagnosed with Behçet's disease with neurological manifestations (neuro-Behçet's disease). She had a good response to treatment. IgG, IgA, IgM and albumin were quantified in serum and cerebrospinal fluid by single radial immunodiffusion. Intrathecal synthesis was found for the three classes of immunoglobulins. This is the first case in which the Reibergram was used to evaluate the neuroimmunological response in a patient wit...

Authors: Keser G, Aksu K, Direskeneli H Abstract Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a challenging chronic, granulomatous, large-vessel systemic vasculitis, mostly due to difficulties in early diagnosis and assessing actual disease activity. Since there are no specific diagnostic laboratory tests, biomarkers, or autoantibodies, many patients experience considerable delay in diagnosis. Remembering the possibility of TAK together with the use of acute phase responses and appropriate imaging studies may be helpful for early diagnosis. Since there may be discrepancies between systemic and vascular wall inflammation, using ...

ConclusionsF-18 FDG PET has a good performance for the detection of active disease status in patients with LVV. Revised criteria for the assessment of disease activity incorporated with F-18 FDG PET or PET/CT should be introduced and validated. Further studies are warranted to determine if PET-based treatment of LVV can improve outcomes.

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical RheumatologyAuthor(s): Elena Csernok, Xavier BossuytAbstractThe diagnosis of systemic vasculitis is challenging. Laboratory testing may provide useful information. Routine laboratory tests include erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP), blood count, serum creatinine, urinalysis, specific autoantibodies, complement, immunoglobulin, cryoglobulin, and Hepatitis B and C serology. Although ESR and CRP are often helpful for the diagnosis of vasculitis, they are nonspecific and do not help in distinguishing betwee...

This study sought to evaluate the occurrence and nature of vasculitis associated with cancer treatment using immune checkpoint inhibition (anti-PD-1, anti-PDL-1, and anti-CTLA4). A systematic review of the medical literature was conducted by searching all available clinical data up to February 2018 in several databases and search engines including Cochrane Library, Embase, Google Scholar, Medline, Scopus, Web of Science, andClinicaltrials.gov. Searches included the following FDA-approved anti-PD1 (nivolumab and pembrolizumab), anti-PDL1 (atezolizumab, avelumab, and durvalumab), and anti-CTLA4 (ipilimumab). The vasculitis c...
