AIM: To determine the scope of acute hypoglycemic effects for certain anti-rheumatic medications in a large retrospective observational study. METHODS: Patients enrolled in the Veterans Affairs Rheumatoid Arthritis (VARA) registry were selected who, during follow-up, initiated treatment with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFi's, including etanercept, adalimumab, infliximab, golimumab, or certolizumab), prednisone, or conventional disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), and for whom proximate random blood glucose (RBG) measurements were available within a window 2-wk prior to, and 6 mo following, medication initiation...

OBJECT: Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α inhibitors are effective at treating certain inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. They are generally safe; potential adverse events include infections (bacterial, fungal, and viral), congestive heart failure exacerbations, and the potential for demyelinating diseases and possibly certain malignancies. We present the first documented case of fungal internal carotid artery (ICA) mycotic aneurysm in a patient being treated with a TNF-α inhibitor...

All primary vasculitides can target the heart, but this complication is more frequent in TAK, PAN, and EGPA. Although pericarditis is seen in virtually all forms of vasculitis, it rarely becomes a significant clinical problem. Myocarditis is more prevalent in EGPA and TAK, and coronary angiitis is most common in TAK, PAN, and BD. In addition, AI is a classic complication of TAK-induced aortitis, and intracavitary cardiac thrombus formation mainly affects patients with BD. Myocarditis, coronary arteritis, and valvular disease can lead to congestive heart failure and represent poor prognostic factors that require aggressive therapy...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence and persistence of new-onset clinical remission in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. METHODS: The Consortium of Rheumatology Researchers of North America (CORRONA) cohort was used to examine the prevalence of remission and associated comorbidities and RA therapies according to the 2011 American College of Rheumatology (ACR)/European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) remission criteria. Factors influencing the likelihood of remaining in remission were identified by logistic regression with generalized estimating equations...

OBJECTIVE: To present the long-term follow-up of children hospitalised for severe rheumatic carditis who were treated with corticosteroids. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of the outcome of 242 patients with severe rheumatic carditis after discharge from two public hospitals in Niteroi, Brazil. We followed up 118 patients for 4 years or more, with an average of 7.7 years. They were treated with antibiotics to accomplish bacterial eradication and either intravenous methylprednisolone - 40 cases - or oral prednisone - 78 patients - to treat carditis...

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) related vanishing bile duct syndrome (VBDS) is a rare condition that often leads to liver failure and death. A 64-year-old man with history of rheumatic heart disease complicated by steno-aortic insufficiency, mild mitral stenosis, atrial fibrillation, left kidney damage, bilateral glaucoma, left internal jugular vein thrombosis, bronchopneumonia, NHL type B (stage IV) treated with chemo and radiotherapy was admitted to our department for jaundice with predominantly cholestatic component...

The incidence of acute rheumatic fever has seen a dramatic decline over the last 15 to 20 years in most developed countries and treatment of this disease has changed little since. The ease of travel and immigration and the cosmopolitan nature of many cities mean that occasionally the disease will come to the attention of clinicians not familiar with its presentation, resulting in delayed diagnosis and treatment. We present a case of recurrent acute rheumatic fever in a patient who was initially thought to be suffering from acute bacterial endocarditis on her previously diseased rheumatic aortic valve...

We recently encountered a 49-year-old female who developed fever due to group A streptococcal (GAS) bacteriaemia spreading to an abscess in the iliac muscle and a bacterial monarthritis of the right knee with a sterile arthritis of her left knee. Treatment was started with a six-week course of intravenous penicillin. She developed a mitral valve insufficiency and pericarditis on the tenth day of admission. In the third week heart failure developed with, on echocardiograph, a high output left ventricular failure without signs of valvulitis or myocarditis...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the short-term prognosis of patients with severe acute rheumatic carditis when treated with an intravenous pulse of methylprednisolone in comparison with conventional treatment using oral prednisone. METHODS: We designed a randomized clinical trial in the setting of a university general hospital in Brazil. We randomly allocated 18 patients with the diagnosis of severe acute rheumatic carditis and congestive heart failure to receive an intravenous pulse as opposed to oral prednisolone...

A case of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) associated with fever, heart failure, and left ventricular (LV) aneurysm is reported. A diagnosis of SLE was suspected owing to the presence of active lymphocytic myocarditis and fibrinous endocarditis at LV endomyocardial biopsy and was confirmed by identification of 4 of the 11 criteria proposed by the American Rheumatism Association for the definition of SLE. A 2-month period of steroid therapy was followed by a remarkable recovery of LV function and progression of endomyocarditis to a healed phase at control LV biopsy...

A 14-year-old boy developed severe respiratory failure during the course of acute rheumatic fever. The results of all microbiological studies were normal. Rheumatic carditis or left ventricular failure was excluded by routine examinations, catheterization of the right side of the heart, and multiple-gated radionuclide ventriculography. The patient recovered completely after a course of high-dose prednisone. To our knowledge, this is the first well-documented case of rheumatic pneumonia in which the lung disease could be attributed to the rheumatic disease and not to a pathologic heart condition...
