#1
Julien Schemoul, Cécile Poulain, Pascal Claudepierre
The therapeutic management of psoriatic arthritis has seen major changes over the last few years, as illustrated by the recent updates of the GRAPPA and EULAR recommendations. These changes were driven by new studies establishing important benefits from early management and tight control of disease activity. The concepts underlying the treatment of psoriatic arthritis must be reappraised in the light of these new data. The objectives of this review are to discuss new concepts, to describe and assess the new drug classes introduced for psoriatic arthritis and, whenever possible, to define the specific indications of each class based on the rheumatic disease phenotype and presence of extraarticular manifestations...

David Petrover, Pascal Richette
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common nerve entrapment syndrome. The majority of cases are due to compression or irritation of the median nerve in the carpal canal. It is diagnosed clinically, often being confirmed by an electromyogram, while ultrasonography criteria have become increasingly useful for the diagnosis. Ultrasonography is better tolerated, less expensive, yet just as effective as other diagnostic methods. It provides a good indication of the severity of the condition and it allows anatomical variants to be discerned...

Damien Sène
Small fiber neuropathy, which affects the sensory A≏ and C fibers, is now a major diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Nearly 7% of the general population have chronic neuropathic pain responsible for severe quality-of-life impairments. Awareness must therefore be raised among clinicians of the somatosensory and autonomic symptoms that can reveal small fiber neuropathy, appropriate diagnostic investigations, most common causes, and best treatment options for each patient profile. To help achieve this goal, the present review article discusses the clinical presentation of neuropathic pain and paresthesia and/or autonomic dysfunction due to involvement of nerves supplying exocrine glands and smooth muscle; normal findings from standard electrophysiological investigations; most informative diagnostic tests (epidermal nerve fiber density in a skin biopsy, laser-evoked potentials, heat- and cold-detection thresholds, electrochemical skin conductance); main causes, which consist chiefly of metabolic diseases (diabetes mellitus, glucose intolerance), dysimmunity syndromes (Sjögren's syndrome, sarcoidosis, monoclonal gammopathy), and genetic abnormalities (familial amyloidosis due to a transthyretin mutation, Fabry disease, sodium channel diseases); and the available symptomatic and etiological treatments...

OBJECTIVE: To explore acceptance and retention rate of biosimilar CT-P13 after switching from originator infliximab (OI) in patients with various rheumatic diseases. METHODS: Patients with stable rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) or psoriatic arthritis (PsA) under OI were proposed to switch to CT-P13 at the same regimen. A prospective cohort of infliximab-naïve patients beginning CT-P13 and a retrospective cohort of patients treated with OI were used as controls...

OBJECTIVE: Catastrophizing is known to be associated with lower analgesia and results in total knee arthroplasty justifying its evaluation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the correlation between the functional status and the catastrophizing in patients with knee osteoarthritis. METHODS: We included patients consulting for knee osteoarthritis one of the three general practitioners participating in the study or a rheumatologist at University Hospital of Besançon...

OBJECTIVE: Epidemiological and experimental studies have suggested that lipid disorders might be involved in the pathophysiology of knee osteoarthritis (OA). Studies assessing the effect of statins on knee OA progression have shown conflicting results. We investigated the impact of statin use on radiological progression in patients with radiological and symptomatic knee OA. METHODS: 336 patients from the placebo arm of SEKOIA trial completed the 3-year follow-up and were included in this post-hoc analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) cause major functional, psychological, social and occupational repercussions for patients and has important economic consequences for society. The principal objective of this work was to determine the economic pertinence of a staff nurse specialised in preventive management for these patients. METHODS: The COMEDRA multicentre randomised controlled clinical trial, conducted from March 2011 to June 2012, showed the effectiveness of a nurse-led programme dedicated to the management of comorbidities trough the promotion of 11 preventive procedures...

OBJECTIVE: Ultrasound (US) seems a useful tool for diagnosis of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) deposition (CPPD). We aimed to compare the performance of US and conventional radiography of the wrist for diagnosis of CPPD. METHODS: Patients with CPP crystals identified in synovial fluid (SF) (knee, hip, shoulder, ankle or wrist) were consecutively included and compared to patients without CPP crystals in synovial fluid considered as controls. As recommended, we used the term chondrocalcinosis (CC) to assess imaging features suggesting CPPD...

OBJECTIVES: To design a transitional care checklist to be used by and facilitate the work of health professionals in providing transitional care for children with a chronic rheumatologic disease and their families. METHODS: A Delphi-like study among an international expert panel was carried out in four steps: 1)a working group of 6 specialists established a draft; 2)a web-survey among a panel of international experts evaluated it; 3)a 2-day consensus conference with an expert panel discussed items not reaching agreement; 4)a web-survey among the panel of international experts with the list of reformulated items...

Jean-Marie Berthelot, Xavier Puéchal
Whipple's disease can mimic spondyloarthritis (SpA) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for many years and, in a few cases, induces the development of antibodies to cyclic citrullinated peptides. The causative agent Tropheryma whipplei can smolder within cells, including macrophages, by suppressing the xenophagic process, a type of selective autophagy that targets pathogens. Other inflammatory joint diseases may also stem from impaired xenophagy with persistence of bacteria or viruses that can eventually migrate from the mucous membranes to the joints and entheses, where they may exert adverse effects on immune responses, even if they fail to replicate...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate the existence of an association between hidrosadenitis suppurativa and spondyloarthritis. METHODS: We performed a single-centre, cross-sectional study in patients with hidrosadenitis suppurativa followed in a tertiary care center, and in healthy volunteers without dermatological disease, matched for age (±5 years) and gender. For each subject included, clinical examinations, HLA-B27 testing and sacro-iliac MRI were performed in order to diagnose spondyloarthritis according to the Assessment of SpondyloArthritis international Society (ASAS) criteria...

OBJECTIVES: Septic polyarthritis is rarer than septic monoarthritis, but associated with higher mortality. Septic polyarthritis may be difficult to distinguish clinically from noninfectious inflammatory arthritis. We describe one of the largest samples of septic polyarthritis with the aim of distinguishing septic monoarthritis from polyarthritis. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of adults admitted to tertiary care with septic monoarthritis and polyarthritis...
