Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a rare inflammatory disorder that remains poorly understood. Its pathophysiology is yet to be completely elucidated, but is known to consist mainly on a cytokine cascade, responsible for the systemic manifestations. AOSD diagnosis is usually difficult and delayed, with physicians having to rule out several other conditions, including cancer or infectious diseases. Prognosis is heterogeneous and difficult to establish, ranging from benign outcome to chronic destructive polyarthritis and/or life-threatening events...

Hemophagocytic lymphopcytosis (HLH) is a life-threatening condition. It can occur either as primary form with genetic defects or secondary to other conditions, such as hematological or autoimmune diseases. Certain triggering factors can predispose individuals to the development of HLH. We report the case of a 25-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with HLH in the context of adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) during a primary infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). During therapy with anakinra and dexamethasone, he was still symptomatic with high-spiking fevers, arthralgia, and sore throat...

OBJECTIVE: Liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS)-based comprehensive analysis of metabolic profiles with metabolomics approach has potential diagnostic and predictive implications. However, no metabolomics data have been reported in adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). This study investigated the metabolomic profiles in AOSD patients and examined their association with clinical characteristics and disease outcome. METHODS: Serum metabolite profiles were determined on 32 AOSD patients and 30 healthy controls (HC) using ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC)/MS analysis, and the differentially expressed metabolites were quantified using multiple reactions monitoring (MRM)/MS analysis in 44 patients and 42 HC...

Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is an uncommon inflammatory condition of unknown origin. In chronic disease, joint involvement is often predominant and erosions are noted in one third of patients. Therapeutic strategies derive from observational data. Corticosteroids are usually the first-line treatment. With inadequate response to corticosteroids, methotrexate appears the best choice to control disease activity and allow for tapering of steroid use. For refractory disease, biological therapy seems the most promising...

Background/Aims: 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) has been suggested as a reliable imaging technique for monitoring of disease activity in patients with adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). Therefore, we investigated the clinical significance of 18F-FDG PET/CT in Korean AOSD patients. Methods: Thirteen AOSD patients were included in the study. The PET/CT images were evaluated with visual and semiquantitative method using standardized uptake values (SUVs)...

BACKGROUND: Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is rare inflammatory disease of unknown etiology that usually affects young adults. The more common clinical manifestations are spiking fevers, arthritis, evanescent rash, elevated liver enzymes, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, and serositis. The multi-visceral involvement of the disease and the different complications, such as macrophage activation syndrome, may strongly decrease the life expectancy of AOSD patients. METHODS: This study aimed to identify the positive and negative features correlated with the outcome of patients...

 Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a rare systemic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. There is not currently any specific serological markers for AOSD , and  diagnosis still relying on the exclusion of other likely diagnoses. Yamaguchi's criteria are used as a diagnostic criterion which contains negative serologic markers for other collagen vascular diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. Here we report a 28-year-old woman with arthralgia, fever, rash, leukocytosis, lymphadenopathy, sore throat, abnormal liver function and negative rheumatoid factor and ANA but  seropositive for anti-CCP, anti-dsDNA, and C-ANCA...

Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a rare systemic inflammatory disorder mainly characterized by persistent high spiking fevers, evanescent rash, and joint involvement. The pathogenesis of AOSD is only partially known, but pro-inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, IL-18, and IFN-γ seem to play a major role in this disorder. AOSD is at the crossroad of auto-inflammatory syndromes and autoimmune diseases. It is diagnosed by exclusion to determine the presence of high serum ferritin levels, which is usually >1000 μg/L...

Adult Onset Still's Disease (AOSD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder that can be associated with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), a rare but potentially fatal disease of overactive histiocytes and lymphocytes. We present a unique case of AOSD complicated by Mycoplasma pneumonia infection and HLH. A 28-year-old female developed joint pains followed by a diffuse, erythematous, pruritic skin rash that quickly spread throughout the body. The patient deteriorated and developed fever, chills, cough, and dyspnea and had to be intubated...

A 72-year-old woman presented 9 months ago with skin rash on her bilateral forearms, which was followed by intermittent high fever, and stiffness and swelling of her bilateral fingers. She was diagnosed with seronegative rheumatoid arthritis (RA). She had a past history of breast cancer and had undergone breast preservation surgery 13 years previously. During admission in our hospital, she developed high fever and leukocytosis with a relapsing skin rash, sore throat, polyarthralgia and increased levels of serum ALT/AST and ferritin, all of which fulfilled Yamaguchi's criteria for adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD)...

Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) - a multi-systemic inflammatory condition characterized by high fevers, polyarthritis, an evanescent rash, and pharyngitis - has been a challenging condition to diagnose expediently and treat effectively. Questions remain regarding the underlying pathophysiology and etiology of AOSD. Pathognomonic diagnostic tests and reliable biomarkers remain undiscovered. Over the past decade, important progress has been made. Diagnostic criteria employing glycosylated ferritin have improved specificity...

Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder involving multiple systems. The symptoms mimic those of lymphomas, therefore, the diagnosis of lymphoma needs to be excluded prior to establishing the diagnosis of AOSD. Another similar condition is dermatopathic lymphadenopathy (DL). In DL, the histopathological appearance of lymph node biopsy may also mimic AOSD. The DL is associated with several systemic pathologies, such as malignant lymphomas, and rarely AOSD. We present a case of a 43-year-old male presented with 3 months history of fatigue, fever, and lymphadenopathy...

BACKGROUND: Some adult patients presenting with unexplained pyrexia, serositis, skin rashes, arthralgia, myalgia, and other symptoms commonly found in autoinflammatory disorders may not fit a specific diagnosis, either because their clinical phenotype is nondiagnostic or genetic tests are negative. We used the term undifferentiated systemic autoinflammatory disorder (uSAID) to describe such cases. Given that well-defined autoinflammatory diseases show responses to IL-1 blockade, we evaluated whether anakinra was useful for both diagnosing and treating uSAID patients...

We report the case of a 71-year-old Japanese woman with adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) in whom macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) developed despite therapy with oral high-dose prednisolone and intravenous methylprednisolone pulse therapy twice. She was successfully treated with tocilizumab (TCZ). Soon afterward, her fever ceased and high levels of both ferritin and C-reactive protein levels decreased. Her course was complicated by disseminated intravascular coagulation, cytomegalovirus infection, and Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia...

OBJECTIVE: IL-18 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine of the IL-1 family that is naturally inhibited by IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP). High levels of IL-18 have been described in the serum of adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) patients, but only total IL-18 levels (including inactive IL-18 bound to IL-18BP) have been measured. With a specific immunoassay, we aimed to measure free IL-18 serum levels in AOSD patients and other rheumatic diseases. METHODS: An ELISA was developed to measure free IL-18...

Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a rare multisystemic immune-mediated disease of unknown etiology with quotidian spiking fever, evanescent rash, arthralgia, and multiple organ involvement. The few AOSD cases that have been reported developed Purtscher's-like retinopathy associated with thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA). Here, we report Purtscher's-like retinopathy without TMA in a patient with AOSD. A 29-year-old-man who presented for evaluation of blurred vision was diagnosed with AOSD based on Yamaguchi criteria...

Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder characterized by rash, leukocytosis, fever and arthralgia/arthritis. The most common pulmonary manifestations associated with AOSD are pulmonary infiltrates and pleural effusion. The present study describes a 40-year-old male with AOSD who developed fever, sore throat and shortness of breath. Difficulty breathing promptly developed, and the patient was diagnosed with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The patient did not respond to antibiotics, including imipenem, vancomycin, fluconazole, moxifloxacin, penicillin, doxycycline and meropenem, but was sensitive to glucocorticoid treatment, including methylprednisolone sodium succinate...

S100A8/A9 has been suggested as a marker of disease activity in patients with adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). We evaluated the clinical significance of S100A8/A9 as a biomarker and its pathogenic role in AOSD. Blood samples were collected prospectively from 20 AOSD patients and 20 healthy controls (HCs). Furthermore, skin and lymph node biopsy specimens of AOSD patients were investigated for S100A8/A9 expression levels via immunohistochemistry. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of active AOSD patients and HCs were investigated for S100A8/A9 cell signals...

Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a rare disease, and large epidemiological studies of this disease are limited. Furthermore, it has been difficult to show the incidence and characteristics of severe AOSD complications due to the rarity of this disease. The aim of our study was to describe the demographics of AOSD and the incidence and characteristics of severe complications. Using a large Japanese administrative database, we identified hospitalized patients with AOSD and described the demographics. We also calculated the incidence of severe complications (i...
