Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTFor the first time, to our knowledge, we present the case of a child with simultaneous occurrence of a C3-glomerulopathy and an anterior uveitis complicated with severe band keratopathy (BK). In addition, repeated evaluations of uveitis disclosed important differences between slit lamp and laser flare photometry (LFP) results due to BK, making treatment choice difficult.PMID:34074679 | DOI:10.3899/jrheum.200462 (Source: Journal of Rheumatology)

Giant Cell Arteritis: Real-life Experience
J Rheumatol. 2021 Jun 1:jrheum.210334. doi: 10.3899/jrheum.210334. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTGiant cell arteritis (GCA), the most frequent form of vasculitis in the elderly, still poses questions regarding optimal treatment. Because of the risk of permanent vision loss, the revised European League Against Rheumatism recommendation of 2018 stresses that glucocorticoid (GC) therapy should start as soon as a diagnosis of GCA is strongly suspected.1.PMID:34074681 | DOI:10.3899/jrheum.210334 (Source: Journal of Rheumatology)

Overall, a low concordance between these 2 composite indices (κ = 0.29) was found in terms of disease activity categories, despite a moderate correlation between their numerical glo...
