Conclusions: Ozonotherapy had a beneficial influence on the immune response in patients with scleroderma. Balneotherapy may be considered as an additional therapeutic option, but further research is required. PMID: 31320847 [PubMed]
AbstractLung ultrasound (LUS) correlates with chest high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) findings in the diagnosis of interstitial lung disease (ILD) in systemic sclerosis (SSc). The aim of this study is to evaluate the predictive value of LUS in the progression of ILD. At baseline, forty-one SSc patients underwent HRCT, LUS for detection of B-lines, and pulmonary function test (PFTs). PFTs were performed also after 12 months to evaluate pulmonary function deterioration. In multiple regression analysis, positive correlation exists between the number of B-lines and HRCT score (r = 0.51,p

ConclusionCrouzon syndrome in this three ‐generation family was caused by c.799T>CFGFR2, and the patient showed a different phenotypic appearance from other Crouzon patients with c.799T>CFGFR2.
AbstractIntroduction/objectivesNeutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), monocyte-to-lymphocyte ratio (MLR), mean platelet volume (MPV), and red cell distribution width (RDW) may potentially reflect inflammatory status in systemic autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study is to investigate the association between these proposed markers and disease manifestations, activity, and severity in systemic sclerosis (SSc).MethodWe conducted a cross-sectional study of 69 systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients and 50 healthy volunteers in a single center. Adult patients with SSc and healthy controls were compared in terms of NLR, MLR, MPV, R...

Authors: Didier K, Robbins A, Antonicelli F, Pham BN, Giusti D, Servettaz A Abstract Systemic sclerosis is a rare connective tissue disease characterized by skin and several internal organ fibrosis, systemic vasculopathy and immune abnormalities. Even if fibroblasts and endothelial cells dysfunction, as well as lymphocytes and other immune cells implication are now well described, the exact origin and chronology of the disease pathogenesis remain unclear. Oxidative stress, influenced by genetic and environmental factors, seems to play a key role. Indeed, it seems to be implicated in the early phases of fibrosis dev...

Conclusion Trochlear pain (trochleodynia) is becoming recognized as a set of disorders that can present in isolation or concomitantly with co-existing migraines, tension-type headaches, or other headache disorders, possibly explaining subpar symptom control in a small but significant number of individuals globally. Trochleodynia features unilateral periocular pain that may involve the ipsilateral hemicranium. Pain exacerbation occurs with trochlear palpation and supraduction of the affected eye especially in the adducted position. Trochleodynia may respond to oral NSAIDs if symptoms are mild and of recent onset. While ora...
