Ten-year Nationwide Population-based Survey on the Characteristics of Children with Henoch-Schӧnlein Purpura in Korea. J Korean Med Sci. 2018 Jun 18;33(25):e174 Authors: Shim JO, Han K, Park S, Kim GH, Ko JS, Chung JY Abstract Background: Henoch-Schӧnlein purpura (HSP) is a common vasculitis of childhood. Though HSP is usually self-limiting, severe complications can occur. The management for this condition has not been established yet. Thus, this nationwide study aimed at investigating epidemiological characteristics of children with HSP in Korea. The patterns of clinical practice with regard to the...

We report the clinical and histologic features of 16 cases (excluding 16 cases of immunoglobulin A vasculitis) diagnosed over a 20-year period. Of the 16 patients, 14 presented with symptoms related to the GI vasculopathy (including 2 presenting with a mass on endoscopic examination). The remaining 2 patients presented with incarcerated hernia and invasive adenocarcinoma. The vasculopathy was not associated with systemic disease and appeared limited to the GI tract in 8 patients. Eight had associated systemic disease, but only 6 had a prior diagnosis. The underlying diagnoses in these 6 patients included systemic lupus ery...

Discussion/conclusion High fever flares and digestive involvement starting in early childhood seem to be hallmarks of HA20 clinical features. Response to colchicine is unpredictable and biotherapies like anti-TNFα and anti IL1 appear to be treatments of choice, like for other auto-inflammatory diseases. Prospective description of larger cohort of HA20 cases is needed to understand better when this disease must be looked for and how to treat these patients.

Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is often the presenting manifestation of giant cell arteritis (GCA). Fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan often discloses the presence of large vessel vasculitis (LVV) in PMR patients. We aimed to identify predictive factors of a positive PET/CT scan for LVV in patients classified as having isolated PMR according to well-established criteria.

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis -a primary systemic vasculitis- most frequent manifestations are respiratory. Airway disease can present with stenosis, and although subglottic stenosis (SGS) is well described, narrowing distal to the glottis has been more recently the focus of reporting. Our objectives, therefore, are to describe the frequency, characteristics, and treatment of tracheobronchial stenoses (TBS) in granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) at our institution, a national referral center for respiratory diseases.

Abstract Colchicum autumnale, from which colchicine has been isolated more than 100 years ago, has been used as a treatment for pain and swelling for thousands of years. It is one of the few drugs known from that time period whose use has survived to modernity. Over the past decades, advances in the knowledge of (i) cytoskeletal microtubules (МТ), and (ii) anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic effects of colchicine, a classical MT-disassembling (tubulin-targeting) agent, have led to potential new uses for this very old drug extended beyond acute gouty arthritis and familial Mediterranean fever. Here, in brief, I p...
