Care atlas rheumatology : Approaches and concepts for improving care in outpatient rheumatology
Z Rheumatol. 2021 Sep 17. doi: 10.1007/s00393-021-01072-6. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInflammatory rheumatic diseases affect 1.5 million adults and an estimated 20,000 children and adolescents throughout Germany. The successful treatment of these patients is largely based on the availability of high-quality medical care. To be able to provide sufficient care and prevent long waiting times even though the number of rheumatologists is below demand, efficient practice structures and approaches that go beyond standard care play an important role. The present study takes a look at the current state of rheumatological outpati...

State of the art: fertility and pregnancy in rheumatic diseases
Z Rheumatol. 2021 Sep 17. doi: 10.1007/s00393-021-01073-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInflammatory rheumatic diseases often affect women of childbearing age, for whom pregnancy is still associated with increased risks. At the same time, we are gaining more and more insights into risk factors and preventive strategies, enabling almost all women to have successful pregnancies with few adverse outcomes. The cornerstones are planning of the pregnancy under effective disease control and the modification of individual risk factors. Hydroxychloroquine is once again coming into focus as a compound with multiple positive effects...

New aspects of rare rheumatic diseases during pregnancy
This article attempts to present the data known so far and to derive and supplement some treatment recommendations from the data. A stable disease situation before the pregnancy drastically reduces the risk of complications for mother and child; therefore, an appropriate and timely adjustment of treatment in consultation with patients and gynecologists is important.PMID:34535819 | DOI:10.1007/s00393-021-01074-4 (Source: Zeitschrift fur Rheumatologie)

Insights into pregnancy and breastfeeding in inflammatory rheumatic diseases through observational data
Z Rheumatol. 2021 Sep 17. doi: 10.1007/s00393-021-01082-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInformation on pregnancy and breastfeeding in women with chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases is relevant for a successful pregnancy and also for maternal and child health. In general, pregnant and breastfeeding women are excluded from randomized clinical trials and therefore evidence for clinical care and counselling has to be generated from observational studies. In the past decades, various data collections have been established for this purpose in addition to the existing spontaneous reporting systems initiated by drug authoriti...

Are SARS-CoV-2 reactive T  cells detectable and potentially protective in patients under anti-CD20 treatment with an impaired humoral response?
Z Rheumatol. 2021 Sep 16:1-5. doi: 10.1007/s00393-021-01083-3. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe pandemic attributable to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has greatly changed life in most countries of the world for more than 1.5 years now. The spread could be more or less well-controlled and fatalities could partly be avoided by obligatory wearing of masks, contact restrictions and since the beginning of the year by vaccinations. Patients with chronic inflammatory diseases and organ transplant patients under immunosuppression, are somewhat more at risk to become ill with coronavirus disease 2019...

Treatment of lung fibrosis in systemic rheumatic diseases (new treatment)
Z Rheumatol. 2021 Sep 10:1-12. doi: 10.1007/s00393-021-01067-3.

In 10% of the cases pulmonary fibrosis even results in an underlying systemic disease. The CTD-ILDs are frequently associated with a poor prognosis. Therefore, it is important to test patients with systemic rheumatic diseases timely and regularly for the presence of an ILD.

Rescued from desperation: adult-onset Still's disease with life-threatening interstitial lung disease and macrophage activation : Successful treatment by Tocilizumab
This article presents a case of fulminant interstitial lung disease (ILD) with macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) as a rare complication of adult-onset Still's disease in a 43-year-old male patient. Initial presentation showed severe ILD. Early treatment focused on high-dose corticosteroids; however, disease remission could not be achieved. After an additional inflammatory focus and underlying malignancy were excluded, the triad of pancytopenia, fever, and high ferritin levels indicated MAS; bone marrow biopsy confirmed secondary hemophagocytic histiocytosis. Treatment with tocilizumab induced fast and effective therapeu...
