Can Anti-Thyroid Antibodies Influence the Outcome of Primary Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia in Children?

CONCLUSION: The results of our bibliographic research demonstrated that: a) pediatric patients with chronic ITP tend to have a statistically significant prevalence of anti-thyroid antibodies positivity respect to general pediatric population; b) there are no clear data about the role of autoimmune thyroiditis as prognostic factor for chronic course of ITP in pediatric age.

We report an adolescent girl with SLE, autoimmune thyroiditis and distal RTA who subsequently developed autoimmune hemolytic anemia. During a follow up of almost 7 years the girl never developed any proteinuria while the RTA persisted. Also during this period her mother was also diagnosed with SLE manifesting as thrombocytopenia.

Roser Calvo* Patient Safety, Safety Science, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, Gaithersburg, MD, United States Immune-related hematological adverse events are amongst the rare but potentially life-threatening complications of immune checkpoint inhibitors. The spectrum of these toxicities is broadening as the number of patients exposed to these agents is increasing. Yet, they are still relatively unknown to many clinicians, possibly due to a lack of specific diagnostic criteria, which poses a challenge for their recognition and proper reporting, and partly due to their low incidence, often too low to be noted in most c...

Conclusion: Some patients with psychiatric syndromes and increased ANA titers may suffer from psychiatric variants of SLE, even if the American College of Rheumatology criteria for SLE are not met. Whether the psychiatric symptoms in our patient represent a prodromal stage with the later manifestation of full-blown SLE or a subtype of SLE with isolated CNS involvement remains unclear. Regardless, early diagnosis and initiation of immunosuppressive treatment are essential steps in preventing further disease progression and organ damage. Intrathecal ANAs with extractable nuclear antigen differentiation may be a more sensitiv...

CONCLUSION: Our study shows the diagnostic value of auto antibodies in AIDs. It would be interesting to carry out prospective studies on each pathology separately, in order to fill the classic vagaries of the retrospective study and objectively estimate the prevalence in different AIDs. These data on the prevalence of each autoimmune disease are valuable for the public health system. PMID: 30807792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Introduction: Chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is defined as isolated thrombocytopenia lasting longer than 12 months. Rheumatologic diseases, immunodeficiencies and thyroid diseases may coexist with chronic ITP due to possible immune dysregulation.Aim: To evaluate the accompanying autoimmune diseases in children with chronic ITP.Materials-Methods: A total of 154 children with chronic ITP (F /M: 1) diagnosed between 1995 and 2018 were included. Patients were evaluated with immunoglobulin levels, ANA, anti dsDNA, C3, C4, anti TPO, anti TG, T4, TSH, tissue transglutaminase IgA and Ig G.Results: Of the 154 patients, 79 we...

There is a known association between Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and autoimmune disorders with several case reports and case series describing diseases such as immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) in patients with HL, as well as population studies depicting a link between these phenomena. The following case report describes a patient initially presenting with ITP and subsequently being diagnosed with HL as well as primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and Hashimoto ’s thyroiditis. This case is unique as it is one of only a few case reports describing multiple autoimmune conditions in one patient with HL and in this scenario, the thromb...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a drug-induced, immunoglobulin G medicated autoimmune disorder associated with several negative clinical outcomes including increased morbidity, mortality, and increased medical costs. Previous studies have shown associations between comorbid autoimmune diseases, but there is little known about associations between HIT and autoimmunity. PURPOSE: To provide clinical data to suggest an association between HIT and autoimmunity. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 59 cases with a diagnosis of HIT and 251 matched controls without a HIT diagnosi...

There are four types of APS; however, variable clinical course often makes the proper APS-type diagnosis difficult. In this paper, we would like to present 3 patients with APS, whose diagnosis has changed over time. The first patient was a girl with alopecia and normocyti...

Celiac disease is a multisystem immune-mediated disorder caused by exposure to dietary gluten in genetically predisposed individuals. The clinical presentation is characterized by a multitude and diversity of symptoms and complications. The coexistence of celiac disease with other autoimmune disorders has been established, most frequently with type 1 diabetes mellitus and autoimmune thyroiditis. The association of celiac disease with immune-mediated hematologic conditions has been rarely reported.
