This unique characteristic makes it a good proxy for evaluation of local inflammation in chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases. Complete data suggest, in inflammatory ...

Internet-based self-diagnosis of Lyme disease caused death in a young woman with systemic lupus erythematosus
We report a 37-year-old female with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who was repeatedly misdiagnosed for a chronic Lyme disease and treated with tetracycline antibiotics before she developed an acute exacerbation of SLE and finally died due to multi-organ failure.The internet encourages patients to ask physicians for serology testing for Lyme disease and to demand further antibiotic treatment. However, there is clear evidence that positive serology does not indicate infection with B.burgdorferi and most importantly, antibiotic therapy for PTLDS is potentially harmful for patients.It is crucial to follow the recent guidel...

Publication date: January 2019Source: Joint Bone Spine, Volume 86, Issue 1Author(s): Johanna Sigaux, Jérôme Biton, Emma André, Luca Semerano, Marie-Christophe BoissierAbstractPollution has long been incriminated in many cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. More recently, studies evaluated the potential role for particulate pollutants in autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The incidence of RA was found to be higher in urban areas. Living near air pollution emitters was associated with higher risks of developing RA and of producing RA-specific autoantibodies. Nevertheless, no str...

Obesity is an established risk factor for osteoarthritis not only at the knee, but also at the hands. Metabolic syndrome is also a risk factor for osteoarthritis, and a cumulative effect of the various syndrome components combines with an independent effect of each individual component...

This is due to their well-proven capacities in symptom severity and disease activity reduction, in particular when combined with a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug, such as methotrexate. Nevertheless, glucocorticoid administration, in long-term especially, is also seen critically because of its potential adverse conditions.In order to achieve a reduction in treatment-related ...

Singular Case of Osteolytic Lesions Revealing Transformation of Myeloproliferative Syndrome to Acute Leukemia
We report the unusual case of a patient with myeloproliferative syndrome in whom the development of osteolytic lesions revealed transformation to acute leukemia. In 2007, this 82-year-old man with essential thrombocythemia since 1994 developed primary polycythemia with the JAK2 mutation V617 F. In July 2017, he was evaluated for an osteolytic lesion in the right humerus with incipient fracturing. Bone marrow smear results provided only limited information, due to the myelofibrosis, showing 7% of blast cells with no plasmacytosis. No solid malignancies were identified by imaging studies. Examination of a right humera...

Patients affected by calcific tendonitis have chronic shoulder pain and disability. Although the disease is frequent, about 10 to 42% of painful shoulders, mechanisms leading to this pathological mineralization are still largely unknown. Research reported in the 1990s suggested that the formation of calcific deposits is linked to cells looking like chondrocytes ...

No consensus exists about the definition of high BMD, and T-score and/or Z-score cutoffs of ≥ + 2.5 or ≥ + 4 have been suggested. The many disorders that can result in high BMD are usually classified based on whether the BMD changes are focal vs. generalized or acquired vs. constitu...
