systematic lupus erythematosis

Hui Jin, Guiying Zhang, Ying Zhou, Christopher Chang, Qianjin Lu
Patients with lupus erythematosus (LE) specific cutaneous manifestations distributed along the lines of Blaschko are seldom encountered in clinic. In this paper, we reported 5 new cases and perform a systematic review of all the published cases in the English and Chinese literature. We provide a comprehensive summary of the clinical manifestations and explore potential etiology and pathogenesis. Sixty-eight published papers (53 English and 15 Chinese) and 93 cases (including 5 cases reported by us) were included in the analysis...

Patients with herpes zoster can develop persistent pain after rash healing, a complication known as postherpetic neuralgia. By preventing zoster through vaccination, the risk of this common complication is reduced. We searched MEDLINE and Embase for studies assessing risk factors for postherpetic neuralgia, with a view to informing vaccination policy. Nineteen prospective studies were identified. Meta-analysis showed significant increases in the risk of postherpetic neuralgia with clinical features of acute zoster including prodromal pain (summary rate ratio 2...

BACKGROUND: Dysregulation of the immune function in autoimmune diseases could potentially lead to cancer development and there is definite evidence linking some autoimmune mechanisms with cancer. We analyzed systematically the occurrence of histology-specific digestive tract cancers in patients diagnosed with 33 different autoimmune diseases in order to address the question of shared susceptibility. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated for subsequent digestive tract cancers up to the year 2008 and in patients hospitalized for autoimmune disease after the year 1964...

BACKGROUND: Rates of labour induction are increasing. OBJECTIVES: To review the evidence supporting indications for induction. SEARCH STRATEGY: We listed indications for labour induction and then reviewed the evidence. We searched MEDLINE and the Cochrane Library between 1980 and April 2008 using several terms and combinations, including induction of labour, premature rupture of membranes, post-term pregnancy, preterm prelabour rupture of membranes (PROM), multiple gestation, suspected macrosomia, diabetes, gestational diabetes mellitus, cardiac disease, fetal anomalies, systemic lupus erythematosis, oligohydramnios, alloimmunization, rhesus disease, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (IHCP), and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)...

We describe the use of intravitreal triamcinolone in the treatment of macular edema associated with systematic lupus erythematosus providing short-term resolution of cystoid macular edema and increase in visual acuity. No side effects from the injection have been seen as yet. We suggest this treatment to be considered in patients for whom laser treatment may be inappropriate or not feasible, or even as an alternative/safer option for all patients.

OBJECTIVE: Systematic lupus erythematosis (SLE) is a severe disease which affects the patient for many years and there is no radical cure for the disease. To explore a possible way to treat children with refractory SLE, the authors treated 2 children with grade III and IV lupus nephropathy for 5 years and 7 years respectively, mainly presented with persistent thrombocytopenia, proteinuria, pleural effusion with CD34(+) autologous peripheral progenitor cells transplantation. METHODS: Mobilized with G-CSF and collected with CS-3000 Cell Separator, passed through the CliniMacs CD34(+) cell selection device, the count of CD34(+) cells obtained reached 1...

Myocardial involvement in lupus erythematosis takes the form of an interstitial myocarditis with cellular infiltration and fibrinoid necrosis. The most lesions are perivascular, and involve the arterioles. The myocardial fibres are involved secondarily to the vascular lesions, or by grossly, damaging sclerosis. The clinical features are variable:--no clinical features, but haemodynamic evidence of abnormal ventricular function, and perhaps sudden death;--arrhythmias and disorders of atrio-ventricular conduction;--cardiac failure, which may be due to a genuine cardiomyopathy (a part may be played by hypertension, pulmonary hypertension, renal failure, constrictive pericarditis or haemodynamically major valve disorders);--abnormalities of the coronary trunk in a certain number of cases...
