Hyperplastic gingivitis is a rare manifestation of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). This gingivitis has a very distinctive clinical appearance (so-called Strawberry gingivitis) and when seen is virtually pathognomic for GPA. Gingivitis often precedes other organ involvement therefore making awareness of this manifestation particularly important to aid early diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, histopathological findings of gingival specimens rarely reveal necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis, which is classically seen at other sites of involvement...

INTRODUCTION: In knee osteoarthritis, local increase and decrease in cartilage thickness has been observed over short time intervals. Hence, averaging cartilage change across large regions may not capture the complexity of structural alterations in disease progression. This study aims to examine the relative performance of different metrics of cartilage thickness change for different clinical studies scenarios. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Metrics for assessing cartilage thickness change were characterized by conventional measures of change versus absolute values (the magnitude) of change, and by different methods of summarizing change over (sub-) regions...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is increasingly prevalent and related to increased risk of several autoimmune diseases, likely via generation of inflammatory adipokines. Prior studies have not evaluated obesity in relation to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) risk. We prospectively evaluated whether obesity was associated with increased SLE risk among women in the U.S. Nurses' Health Study cohorts. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study among 238,130 women in the Nurses' Health Studies (NHS, 1976-2012; NHSII, 1989-2013)...

OBJECTIVES: The ideal goal of treatment for juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is disease remission. However, many sets of remission criteria have been developed and no systematic review of remission in JIA exists. The current systematic review investigated (1) how remission has been defined across JIA clinical cohorts and (2) the frequency of remission overall and within disease categories. METHODS: Studies using prospective inception cohorts published after 1972 were selected if they estimated remission in cohorts of ≥50 patients...

The first step in the diagnosis of a patient with suspected axial spondyloarthritis is to differentiate the signs and symptoms of the disease from other disorders, potentially manifesting with similar clinical and imaging features. This review examines diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, osteitis condensans ilii, and other developmental and metabolic disorders that may mimic axial spondyloarthritis, highlighting the diagnostic caveats and discussing shared and distinguishing aspects of these conditions in order to improve the clinician's ability to set them apart...

OBJECTIVES: The 2010 ACR/EULAR criteria were derived to classify rheumatoid arthritis (RA) earlier in time. Previous studies indeed observed that the 2010 criteria were fulfilled earlier than the 1987 criteria. This study determined whether the 2010 criteria perform equally in early classification of autoantibody-positive and autoantibody-negative RA. METHODS: From the total Leiden-EAC (n = 3448) and ESPOIR (n = 813) RA patients who fulfilled the 1987 RA criteria at 1 year but not at presentation were selected (n = 463 and n = 53, respectively), as these patients were classified with delay with the 1987 criteria...
