Gigantic prepatellar "tumor" in rheumatoid arthritis-a case report
This article reports the case of a 59-year-old patient with longstanding rheumatoid arthritis who presented to the orthopedic rheumatologic consultation with a massive swelling directly ventral to the knee joint. At that point the tumor had already grown very slowly for 5 years. The staged diagnostic process (patient history, clinical, laboratory tests, sonographic examinations, X‑ray, MRI with contrast medium) revealed no trace of malignancy whatsoever. The treatment then consisted of the complete surgical excision in accordance with the recommendations for tumor surgery. Histopathological findings confirmed the diagnos...

Unclassifiable repeated antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) positivity in diseases other than ANCA-associated vasculitis
CONCLUSION: Overall, regardless of category, the common diseases with unclassifiable repeated ANCA were chronic kidney disease followed by interstitial lung disease and vasculitis undetermined. Thus, we carefully suggest that physicians should pay more attention to the development of AAV or vasculitis other than AAV and, furthermore, kidneys and lungs should be monitored regularly and closely in patients with unclassifiable repeated ANCA.PMID:33904985 | DOI:10.1007/s00393-021-00998-1 (Source: Zeitschrift fur Rheumatologie)

A pretravel comprehensive consultation is therefore strongly recommended.

Infected endoprosthesis in patients with rheumatism
Z Rheumatol. 2021 Apr 22. doi: 10.1007/s00393-021-00995-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInfections are a severe complication after an artificial joint replacement. The clinical symptoms are highly variable, particularly in patients with inflammatory rheumatic diseases, which often makes the diagnosis difficult. In addition to clinical and laboratory findings, joint puncture is an essential component of the diagnostics and enables the identification of pathogens. Treatment of periprosthetic infections in patients with rheumatism should be an interdisciplinary cooperation between surgeons, rheumatologists and specialists fo...

Myofasciitis under nivolumab treatment
We report the case of a 73-year-old female patient with malignant melanoma who developed rapidly progressive dermatosclerosis of the arms and legs as well as myalgia and flexion contractures during treatment with the immune checkpoint inhibitor nivolumab. The diagnosis of a myofasciitis was confirmed by imaging and biopsy. Following consultation with the treating dermato-oncologists nivolumab treatment was paused and treatment with methotrexate and prednisolone was initiated. Immune checkpoint inhibitors can induce a variety of immune-mediated side effects and can also imitate symptoms of rheumatological diseases. The occu...

Annual meeting of the German Society for Rheumatology going virtual-successfully defying the pandemic
DISCUSSION: Overall, the participants appreciated the virtual format of the German Rheumatology Congress. Optimization aspects could be shown and these could be considered in the implementation of further (digital) congresses. The results of this work provide suggestions for improvement on how the DGRh can meet and exceed the needs of participants in organizing a virtual or hybrid conference in the future.PMID:33877456 | PMC:PMC8055747 | DOI:10.1007/s00393-021-00997-2 (Source: Zeitschrift fur Rheumatologie)
