BACKGROUND: Behcet's disease (BD) is a chronic, multisystem-involved vasculitis and its pathogenesis remains elusive. No specific serological markers for BD diagnosis have been established. Identification of novel diagnostic biomarkers will be helpful in timely diagnostic and treatment for Behcet's disease. OBJECTIVE: To screen novel autoantigens or autoantibodies with potential diagnostic value in circulating immune complexes (CICs) from BD patients. METHODS: A proteomic strategy for immune complexome analysis was developed, in which CICs were separated from serum sample of 10 BD patients and 10 healthy controls and then subjected to Orbitrap mass spectrometry for autoantigen profiling...

Erythema nodosum leprosum (ENL) is characterized by tender erythematous nodules, accompanied by fever, malaise, arthralgia, and systemic complications. Atypical clinical manifestations have been reported such as pustular, bullous, ulceration; livedo reticularis; erythema multiforme-like reaction; and Sweet's syndrome (SS)-like presentation. We reported a case of ENL reaction presenting as SS-like reaction in a borderline lepromatous leprosy patient.

INTRODUCTION: Behçet disease (BD) is a systemic vasculitis involving vessels from any size with various clinical features. Most BD cases are multifactorial and associated with the HLA B51 antigen. In rare and severe early onset cases, dominant Mendelian transmission has been linked to mutations in the TNFAIP3 gene encoding A20. Herein, we propose a systematic review of the literature about the haploinsufficiency A20 (HA20) published cases. SYSTEMATIC REVIEW: Our review of the 45 cases of HA20 from literature highlights the similarities and the differences between this genetic auto-inflammatory disease and classical BD...

Leprosy is a chronic granulomatous disease involving the skin and nerves, leading to a debilitating condition. Leprosy has been controlled in most parts of the world; therefore physicians are not very well versed in the recognition, management and assessment of this disease. The protean manifestations of leprosy often lead to delays in diagnosis and increase the morbidity. We present a case of a 33-year-old male with fever, lymphadenopathy, nodular skin lesions, uveitis and arthritis. Lymphnode, bonemarrow and skin biopsy revealed 3+ AFB smear with negative AFB cultures, leading to the diagnosis of leprosy...

Indications for everolimus and other drugs within the mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor class have recently expanded to include tuberous sclerosis complex. Everolimus is generally well tolerated, but it is important for physicians to identify and manage associated cutaneous adverse effects. We report the first case of a child developing erythema nodosum while undergoing everolimus therapy.

Coexistence of idiopathic granulomatous mastitis and erythema nodosum is very unusual. In this paper, we present a patient with idiopathic granulomatous mastitis accompanied by erythema nodosum to highlight the diagnostic importance of erythema nodosum and its relationship with treatment response of breast lesion. A 39-year-old female with a breast lesion and erythema nodosum was started on treatment with corticosteroids before the results of her histopathological evaluation were obtained. The response to treatment was very quick...

Erythema nodosum is a panniculitis associated with numerous diseases such as infections, inflammatory diseases, tuberculosis or can be idiopathic. We here report a case of a woman with erythema nodosum and reactive arthritis who was subsequently diagnosed with tuberculosis. A high level of suspicion and a thorough clinical and laboratory investigation of the patient presenting with erythema nodosum is required, in order to detect a possible systemic underlying condition.

A 15-year-old girl presented with erythema nodosum and mild abdominal complaints. Her intestinal granulomatous disease was erroneously diagnosed as Crohn's disease despite the fact that the possibility of tuberculosis was considered. The final diagnosis of tuberculosis was made only when an anti-tumour necrosis factor therapy resulted in further deterioration. The patient was treated with isoniazid, rifampin, pyrazinamide and ethambutol, with slow and steady clinical improvement until complete recovery was achieved...

Leprosy patients may present reactional episodes classified as type I or reversal reaction and type II or erythema nodosum leprosum. Early diagnosis of these reactions is hampered by lack of diagnostic tests. This study aimed at evaluating anti-Mycobacterium leprae antibody levels in reactional and nonreactional leprosy patients at the time of diagnosis. Clinical data and serum samples of 224 patients diagnosed between 2009 and 2010 were collected in the municipality of Rondonópolis-MTBR. Quantification of anti-phenolic glycolipid-1 (PGL-1) IgM antibodies of M...

Reactive arthritis after Group A streptococcal infection (poststreptococcal reactive arthritis: PSRA) that does not meet the Jones criteria for acute rheumatic fever (ARF) has been reported as a new entity for over a decade. In Japan there are few reports of PSRA. We encountered four children with arthritis accompanied with Group A streptococcal infection in our department. We investigated our cases and the recent Japanese literature. Japanese cases of PSRA are frequently accompanied with uveitis and erythema nodosum, and tonsillectomy resolved their symptoms in some cases...
