Urticarial vasculitis is a rare disorder that principally manifests with recurrent urticarial, sometimes hemorrhagic, skin lesions and/or angioedema. Its clinical presentation is not always limited to cutaneous lesions and it can potentially affect other organs, such as the joints, lungs, kidneys, and eyes. Systemic involvement can either be present at the onset of disease or develop over time. In cases with systemic manifestations, urticarial vasculitis is more likely to be associated with a low complement level...

Flavobacterium psychrophilum is the etiologic agent of bacterial coldwater disease (BCWD) and rainbow trout fry syndrome (RTFS), which cause significant worldwide losses in aquaculture. Juvenile rainbow trout are particularly susceptible to F. psychrophilum infection, the main external clinical signs of which are extensive necrotic myositis and ulcerative lesions. Despite the economic relevance of this pathogen in aquaculture, little is known about the molecular mechanisms underlying F. psychrophilum infection and pathogenesis...

CLINICAL ISSUE: Inflammatory muscle diseases are quite heterogeneous and frequently a specific diagnosis is not easy. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is best suited to demonstrate pattern and size of inflamed muscles. PERFORMANCE: Sensitivity of MRI in showing inflamed muscles is nearly 100%. Specificity, however, is much lower. PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS: In cases of suspected bacterial myositis, sonography may be used to exclude abscess formation prior to MRI for more precise information about inflamed muscles...

BACKGROUND: Dysphagia is common in inflammatory myopathies and usually responds to corticosteroids. Severe dysphagia requiring feeding by percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is associated with significant morbidity and high mortality. CLINICAL CASE: A 56-year old African Black woman initially presented with systemic sclerosis (SSC) - myositis overlap and interstitial lung disease. She responded to high dose corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide followed by azathioprine, with improvement in her lung function and regression of the skin changes...

Chikungunya virus (CHIKV)-induced myositis is an emerging affliction with high incidence globally. Given the essential regulatory role of protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor 6 (PTPN6) in virus-induced myositis, the expression of the PTPN6 and TNF-α genes in a CHIKV-infected muscle cell line was examined by quantitative PCR, and the expression of PTPN6 and STAT 3 was examined by immunoblotting. In addition, the effect of PTPN6 siRNA treatment on TNF-α gene expression was assessed. Increased higher expression of PTPN6 and TNF-α, and significant upregulation of TNF-α upon PTPN6 siRNA treatment were observed, suggesting that CHIKV has the ability to induce host PTPN6 gene expression, which may lead to a decreased pro-inflammatory immune response in the host...

Subacute myelo-optico-neuropathy (SMON) is a neurodegenerative disease that may be caused by overdose or prolonged oral administration of clioquinol. Recently, dysphagia has attracted attention as a complication of SMON. To investigate lingual control in SMON, we examined patients with SMON using assessments of maximum tongue pressure, compared with dysphagia-related diseases, such as sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and healthy volunteer. The mean maximum tongue pressure (Pmax) in patients with SMON was 14...

Several antineoplastic treatments have been responsible for thyroid dysfunction and thyroid eye disease. Min, Vaidya, and Becker (2011) reported a case of euthyroid Graves orbitopathy after treatment with ipilimumab with the patient displaying proptosis and myositis in the setting of normal thyroid function tests and elevated thyroid antibodies. The authors report a case of a 76-year-old woman who developed right upper lid retraction and proptosis after 2.5 years of treatment with lenalidomide for multiple myeloma...

Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is associated with multiple clinical syndromes in pigs, known as porcine circovirus diseases. This work describes an outbreak of porcine circovirus diseases with severe lesions affecting the skeletal muscle. Ninety-two pigs had apathy, weight loss, and diarrhea over a clinical course of 7 to 10 days. Approximately 30 of the pigs had stiff gait, muscle weakness, hind limb paresis, and recumbency. Twelve of the 92 pigs were necropsied, and 4 had pale discoloration of skeletal muscles with microscopic lesions of granulomatous necrotizing myositis...

Recent studies have revealed the clinical, histological, and pathophysiological characteristics in a group of inflammatory myopathies with selected autoantibodies. We retrospectively compared the clinical manifestations and histological features between 8 anti-mitochondrial (anti-M2) antibody-positive and 33 antibody-negative patients. Patients with anti-M2 antibodies have been previously reported to have delayed diagnostic confirmation and frequent cardiopulmonary complications in comparison to those without the antibodies...

Muscular involvement is common during systemic vasculitides, such as polyarteritis nodosa. However, in rare cases, muscular involvement can be the only clinically evident feature of the disease. The clinical pattern of isolated muscular vasculitis may mimic several other inflammatory muscle disorders, such as idiopathic inflammatory myositis, and may represent a challenge in differential diagnosis. Herewith, we present two clinical cases as examples of peculiar clinical and histopathological characteristics of isolated muscular vasculitis...

INTRODUCTION: Assessing disease activity in patients suffering from autoimmune diseases is complex. Symptoms are multiple, often subjective and there are no reliable biomarkers. Many activity scores have been implemented to compare treatment efficacy in clinical trials. Their use in clinical practice is largely unknown. We performed a practical survey to analyze the use of activity scores in clinical practice to consider treatment response and to assess the determinants of their use. METHODS: A sample of French internists answered a questionnaire about activity scores of systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren's syndrome, autoimmune myositis and necrotizing vasculitis of small vessels...

Immunotherapy drugs work by stimulating the patient's own immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells. This subclass of drugs is increasingly administered to patients with advanced melanoma. They are also commonly incorporated into other cancer therapies such as non-small cell lung cancer, renal cancer, head and neck cancers and Hodgkin lymphoma. The most commonly administered immunotherapeutic agents in the treatment of melanoma include programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) inhibitors, cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4) inhibitors and a subclass of cytokines...

Prognostication of quadriceps contusion is based on the patient's active knee flexion after the injury. Unlike ultrasonography, clinical grading does not define the extent of soft tissue injury and may provide inaccurate time for return to play. The purposes of this report are to describe the ultrasound findings of the different clinical grading of quadriceps contusion and document the return to play of each case. Seven patients were evaluated in this series. Results showed discrepancies in the disability time between clinical grading and ultrasound findings...
