Conclusion VCE is very useful for confirming gastrointestinal involvement in IgAV and may be used to determine the timing of steroid therapy initiation. We recommend performing VCE when IgAV is suspected in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms. PMID: 30996162 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Cutaneous vasculitis is one of the most common skin findings in systematic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this pathological process remain elusive. Our previous research suggested that anti-galectin-3 antibody was strongly related to the occurrence of cutaneous vasculitis in SLE patients. We here reported that anti-galectin3 antibody isolated from SLE patients induced cutaneous vasculitis in a dose-dependent manner by intradermal injection into mice. This antibody dysregulated the function of endothelial cells by inhibiting cell migration, capillary tubule formation and promoting in...

Conclusions: FMF rarely involves the posterior pole. Visual loss in FMF results from either posterior scleritis or posterior uveitis. A high degree of suspicion of posterior scleritis is warranted in female patients with known FMF presenting with cloudy serous macular detachment.Case Rep Ophthalmol 2019;10:134 –139

Publication date: Available online 17 April 2019Source: IDCasesAuthor(s): Meric Mericliler, Andrew MoracoAbstractLeukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) refers to a histopathological pattern of neutrophil predominant inflammatory process of small vessels associated with fibrinoid necrosis. Cutaneous LCV usually presents as symmetrically distributed palpable purpuric nodules of the lower extremities with or without systemic involvement. Although 50% of LCV cases are idiopathic, it can be secondary to identifiable causes such as malignancy, autoimmune conditions, infections, and medications. Medications have been implicated in up ...

Abstract Vasculitis refers to inflammation of the systemic vessels. Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a medium and small vessel vasculitis characterized by hypereosinophilia, pulmonary infiltrates, difficult to treat asthma and polyneuropathies. Diagnosis can often be challenging. In this article, we present a case of a young lady who was diagnosed ANCA negative EGPA. PMID: 30989049 [PubMed]

Conclusion The m.10191T>C mutation in the mtDNA of the complex I (CI) subunit of MTND3 results in the substitution of a highly conserved amino acid (p.Ser45Pro) within the ND3 protein, leading to CI dysfunction through impaired enzyme catalysis rather than impaired stability or assembly, causing a broad clinical spectrum of disorders (26). Patients with the m.10191T>C mutation are rare. In the present study, we report on a family of patients with the extremely rare adult-onset Leigh-like syndrome with the m.10191T>C mutation. Including the two patients from our reported family, the m.10191T>C mutation has bee...
