Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Abortusequi is frequently reported as a cause of abortion in mares and neonatal septicemia and polyarthritis in Asian and African countries, but only sporadically in Europe and the United States. We report an outbreak of S. Abortusequi in foals in Italy, characterized by high mortality. In a herd of Murgese horses, 10 of 34 newborns died at birth and a further 7 died, after developing severe clinical signs, during the first 10 d of life. Tissue specimens from different organs of 2 dead foals, synovial fluids from 4 sick foals, and vaginal and rectal swabs from their dams were cultured...

Psoriasis is a chronic, papulosquamous, and an inflammatory skin disease. It has been found that between 5% and 24% of patients develop psoriatic arthritis (PA) at the same time after or even prior to skin findings. The involvement of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a rare condition. In this report, a-46-year-old male patient was referred to our clinic with the complaint of pain in the bilateral TMJs, and a limited jaw movement. Medical anamnesis revealed he had psoriasis for the last 21 years, and developed a seronegative polyarthritis with destructive changes for 8 years...

BACKGROUND Fitz-Hugh-Curtis (FHC) syndrome is a perihepatitis linked to inflammatory pelvic disease. It can be caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydia trachomatis infections. FHC syndrome usually presents with pain in the right hypochondrium and fever, associated with symptoms and signs of pelvic infection in women. CASE REPORT We present the case of a 22-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) who presented with polyarthritis, cutaneous lesions, and abdominal pain. The diagnosis of FHC syndrome was based on the findings of abdominal computerized tomography (CT) and the isolation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) in blood cultures...

REVIEW
Toshiyuki Yamamoto, Akira Kawada
To determine the characteristics and current status of Japanese patients with psoriatic arthritis, the Japanese Society for Psoriasis Research have started to conduct retrospective questionnaire surveys. The results collected from over a thousand patients with psoriatic arthritis have revealed several characteristics. The newly visited psoriatic arthritis patients accounted for approximately 10% of all new psoriatic patients who visited the dermatology department in many referral centers. The prevalence was nearly 15% of psoriatic patients, which was similar to a recent rheumatology and dermatology study in Japan with a large cohort...

Pachydermoperiostosis or primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy, also known as Touraine-Solente-Gole syndrome, is a rare process, frequently inherited. In its complete form it is characterized by pachydermia (thickening of the skin), skeletal changes (periostosis) and acropachia (digital clubbing). Diagnosis can be made considering the typical clinical features and the histological feature. We report a patient of 25-year old man presented with joint pain involving in multiple joints for last 7 years and progressive enlargement of his hands and feet with profuse sweating of palms and soles for last 4 years...

OBJECTIVE: In our region in Quebec, Canada, access to rheumatologists is very limited. Sharing followup of stable patients with their primary care physicians (PCP) could increase access to rheumatologists. In our study, we assessed the feasibility and potential benefits of sharing followup of inflammatory arthritis (IA) patients with their PCP. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical records of 300 patients with peripheral arthritis who presented at our rheumatology outpatient clinic between July and October 2015...

Rat-bite fever (RBF) is a disease that usually presents with fever, arthralgia and skin rash. Streptobacillus moniliformis was considered the main cause of RBF among the genus Streptobacillus. Although with similar clinical presentation, RBF due to Streptobacillus notomytis is unusual in humans. To the best of our knowledge, we present a case involving the first isolate of S. notomytis in humans. A 63-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with fever, rash and polyarthritis. She recalled being bitten by a rat on her finger 5 days before presentation...

Chlamydia pecorum is a globally recognised livestock pathogen due to the significant clinical and economic impact it poses to livestock producers. Routine serological diagnosis is through a complement fixation test (CFT), which is often criticised for cross-reactivity, poor sensitivity and specificity. Although serology remains the preferred method in veterinary diagnostic laboratories, serological assays based on surface antigens of C. pecorum have not been established until now. In this study, we evaluated the use of two chlamydial recombinant protein antigens (PmpG and MOMP-G) by a direct IgG ELISA method for detection of ovine anti-chlamydial antibodies...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic polyarthritis of unknown etiology. To unravel the molecular mechanisms in RA, we performed targeted DNA sequencing analysis of patients with RA. This analysis identified a variant of the death receptor 3 (DR3) gene, a member of the family of apoptosis-inducing Fas genes, that contains four single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and a 14-nucleotide deletion within exon 5 and intron 5. We found that the deletion causes the binding of splicing regulatory proteins to DR3 pre-mRNA intron 5, resulting in a portion of intron 5 becoming part of the coding sequence, thereby generating a premature stop codon...

Introduction The antisynthetase syndrome is a rare autoimmune disease described by the presence of inflammatory myositis, interstitial lung disease and antibodies against aminoacyl-transfer RNA synthetases. Interstitial lung disease can be the only manifestation in the absence of an inflammatory myositis. Other clinical signs are Raynaud phenomenon, hyperkeratotic skin lesions, fever and inflammatory polyarthritis. Case presentation We report the case of a 64-year old woman who complained of a dry cough, progressive dyspnea and arthralgia since 2 years, with no other systemic symptoms...

The pancreatitis, panniculitis and polyarthritis (PPP) syndrome is a rare condition caused by pancreatic diseases, such as acute or chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic carcinoma. We report the first case of PPP syndrome caused by metastatic acinar cell carcinoma from an ectopic pancreas. The symptoms were successfully managed by the treatment of the metastatic carcinoma. Pancreatic cytosteatonecrosis should be always considered in a patient who is showing symptoms of panniculitis and polyarthritis.

Bone scintigraphy is a nuclear scanning test used to find abnormalities in the skeleton. Certain abnormal processes involving soft tissues can also cause skeletal accumulation of radiotracer during bone scintigraphy. We present a case of periarticular knee soft tissue (99m)Tc methylene diphosphonate uptake in a patient with asymmetric polyarthritis. A 33-year-old patient with asymmetric polyarthritis, skin lesions and joint pain underwent bone scintigraphy. Total body examination showed an extra-osseous uptake in periarticular soft tissue of knees joints...

BACKGROUND: Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an emerging mosquito-borne disease that causes acute febrile polyarthralgia and arthritis. CHIKV has spread rapidly to the Americas and, in Brazil, autochthonous cases are increasingly been reported. Solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients who travel to or live in CHIKV endemic areas are under high risk of acquiring the disease. Few data exist regarding the clinical characteristics of CHIKV infections in this population. We report the first case series of CHIKV infection in SOT recipients...

BACKGROUND: Current studies demonstrate encouraging short-term results after primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) suture anchor repair. However, earlier studies reported deterioration of knee function at 5-year follow-up following good clinical short-term recovery. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate clinical long-term results after primary ACL repair at a minimum 5-year follow-up. METHODS: In a retrospective study, 13 patients were included between 2009 and 2012...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common, chronic systemic inflammatory disease of unclear aetiology leading to synovial hypertrophy and joint inflammation. It typically presents with symmetrical polyarthritis of small joints of the hands or feet, but can also involve larger joints, and have associated extra-articular manifestations. Diagnosis is based on duration of symptoms, joint distribution, level of inflammatory markers and autoantibodies i.e. rheumatoid factor(RhF) and anty-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies...

In systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the most commonly encountered finding related to platelets is thrombocytopenia whereas thrombocytosis is rarely reported. Our aim here was to reveal the type and the frequency of thrombocytosis in SLE patients along with its causes. Data of patients were evaluated retrospectively. Patients who had a platelet count of > 450,000/mm3 (> 450 × 109/L) in at least two subsequent counts and lasting more than 6 months during the follow-up were considered to have "persistent thrombocytosis"...
