CONCLUSIONS: As the present study was the first investigation on the coagulation status in patients with AA, elevated D-dimer levels in alopecia areata may suggest a deficient coagulation in these patients that may contribute to an increase in the risk of thrombosis. Further studies are needed to evaluate this hypothesis using a larger sample size. PMID: 33034439 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive autoimmune inflammatory disease affecting 1% of the population with three times as many women as men. As many as 86% of patients suffering from RA have cervical spine involvement. Synovial inflammation in the cervical spine causes instability and injuries including atlantoaxial subluxation, retroodontoid pannus formation, cranial settling, and subaxial subluxation. While many patients with cervical spine involvement are asymptomatic, symptomatic patients often present with nonspecific symptoms resulting from inflammation and additional secondary symptoms that are due to co...

Abstract Systemic sclerosis is a complex autoimmune connective tissue disease which carries a significant burden of disease-related morbidity including potentially life-threatening complications. Systemic sclerosis can affect all the major organs and therefore, although the disease is uncommon, many hospital-based specialists are involved in patient care. Vascular disease (e.g. Raynaud's phenomenon) is an almost universal symptom in patients with systemic sclerosis and is often the earliest manifestation of the disease. Systemic sclerosis not uncommonly can overlap with other rheumatological conditions (e.g. rheum...
