OBJECTIVE: To compare perceptions of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) to those of their families regarding pain and subjective experience of the disease. METHODS: It was a monocentric study, including 120 RA patients (according to the American College of Rheumatology criteria). The questionnaires were developed during meetings of RA patients, rheumatologists, and methodologists while referring to the literature. The patient questionnaire comprised 22 items organized in 4 sections: pain, perceived experience of the disease, activity restrictions, and help received...

Coexistence between two or more immunological-mediated diseases implies a clinical and therapeutic challenge that is uncommon in the clinical field. We report a rare case of a young patient with amyopathic juvenile dermatomyositis and erythrodermic psoriasis, with an excellent response to ustekinumab.

BACKGROUND: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic multisystem connective tissue disorder with detrimental impact on quality of life. Patients with SSc face emotional distress and frequently meet criteria for a psychiatric disorder. However, the pattern of psychiatric manifestations may vary according to socioethnic background. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the prevalence of depressive and anxiety symptoms and examined their association with sociodemographic and clinical factors in Iranian SSc patients...

Nimish Mehta, Lynne Kolton Schneider, Emilie McCardell
The overall goal of therapy for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is to achieve low disease activity or remission and to prevent or control joint damage, prevent loss of function, and decrease pain. However, many patients with RA do not have the disease adequately controlled, and only a minority attain consistent remission. To successfully treat to target, rheumatologists need practical guidance to select monotherapy and combination therapy regimens based on available data. Differences in study design, dosing regimens, and data from defined and specific patient populations pose challenges to clinicians who treat patients with diverse characteristics and needs...

Hydroxychloroquine is the cornerstone of medical therapy in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We report a case of erythema multiforme in association with this medication in a 25-year-old white woman with SLE. We provide a detailed review of the reported cases in the literature of hydroxychloroquine-induced severe cutaneous adverse reactions. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of hydroxychloroquine-induced erythema multiforme in the setting of SLE.

BACKGROUND: Disease Activity Score in 28 Joints (DAS28) is a scoring system to evaluate disease activity and treatment response in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A DAS28 score of greater than 3.2 is a well-described limit for treatment intensification; however, the reliability of DAS28 might be overestimated. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of DAS28 in RA, especially focusing on a subgroup of patients with a DAS28 score of greater than 3...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to compare the levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) in patients with early-onset rheumatoid arthritis (EORA) versus a healthy control group and to assess the association of 25(OH)D deficiency and the BsmI polymorphism of the vitamin D receptor gene with clinical, radiological, and laboratory parameters. METHODS: Early-onset RA Colombian patients were enrolled in a 3-year follow-up study. Vitamin D deficiency was diagnosed for 25(OH)D levels of less than 20 ng/mL...

BACKGROUND: Physical inactivity is a leading risk factor for developing disability. Although randomized clinical trials have demonstrated improving physical activity can reduce this risk in older adults with arthritis, these studies did not specifically evaluate inactive adults. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship of changes in physical activity with disability changes among initially inactive adults with or at high risk of knee osteoarthritis from Osteoarthritis Initiative...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: In addition to increase mortality, comorbidities can increase medical costs for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Healthcare utilization can dramatically increase medical costs. It is essential to better understand the comorbidities that can lead to healthcare utilization, such as emergency department visit and/or hospitalization, for SLE patients. Therefore, the objective of this study was to examine the associations between comorbidities and healthcare utilization and medical charges of patients with SLE...
