OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to describe and compare clinical features, treatment, and renal outcomes of children with membranous lupus nephritis (MLN), through analysis of a national multicenter registry. METHODS: Patients with pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and MLN from the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) Legacy Registry were included. Demographic, disease and medication-related data were collected between 2010 and 2014 from 59 CARRA Legacy Registry sites...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Current clinical guidelines do not consider patients with rheumatic conditions to be at high risk for celiac disease (CD) despite numerous reported associations between the two in adults and children. The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of CD among patients presenting for pediatric rheumatology evaluation. METHODS: A total of 2125 patients presenting for initial evaluation by the Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at the Hospital for Special Surgery between June 2006 and December 2013 were screened for CD as a part of the standard initial serologic evaluation...

OBJECTIVE: To create a pediatric rheumatology Top 5 list as part of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation's Choosing Wisely campaign. METHODS: Delphi surveys of a core group of representative pediatric rheumatology providers from across North America generated candidate Top 5 items. Items with high content agreement and perceived to be of prevalent use and of high impact were included in a survey of all American College of Rheumatology (ACR) members who identified themselves as providing care to pediatric patients...

OBJECTIVE: To formulate consensus treatment plans (CTPs) for induction therapy of newly diagnosed proliferative lupus nephritis (LN) in juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: A structured consensus formation process was employed by the members of the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance after considering the existing medical evidence and current treatment approaches. RESULTS: After an initial Delphi survey (response rate = 70%), a 2-day consensus conference, and 2 followup Delphi surveys (response rates = 63-79%), consensus was achieved for a limited set of CTPs addressing the induction therapy of proliferative LN...

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is a chronic rheumatic disease associated with pain and maladjustment. This study investigated whether pain, acceptance of pain, and psychological inflexibility uniquely predicted functional disability, anxiety, general quality of life (QOL), and health-related quality of life (HQOL) among adolescents with JIA. Twenty-three adolescents with JIA and pain were recruited from a pediatric rheumatology clinic. Participants completed self-report measures pertaining to the key study variables...

OBJECTIVE: Pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic fluctuating disease that significantly impacts quality of life (QOL). There is no pediatric SLE-specific health-related QOL (HRQOL) scale. Our objective was to develop and validate a new pediatric SLE-specific HRQOL scale. METHODS: We developed the Simple Measure of the Impact of Lupus Erythematosus in Youngsters (SMILEY) based on results of qualitative research of children with SLE and their parents...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in children is a chronic multi-system disease with wide ranging effects on their quality of life (QOL). While SLE's impact on different arenas of life and well-being has been extensively examined in the adult population, its effect on children has not received adequate attention. This paper briefly discusses the multidimensional aspect of QOL, the biopsychosocial implications of SLE, factors complicating QOL measurement in the affected population, and the different generic and disease-specific scales used for measuring QOL and related constructs, and it also highlights the need for SLE-specific pediatric QOL instruments...

Paediatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is associated with significant morbidity and has biopsychosocial implications resulting from the disease and its treatment. The aim of this study was to identify domains of quality of life (QOL) impacted by SLE in children. Children with SLE and their parents were asked a single open-ended question related to lupus. Themes derived from children's responses focused primarily on coping and maintaining control of their life despite SLE. Themes from the parents' responses were twofold: a) efforts to cope with their child having SLE; and b) appreciation/sadness in connection with their children's coping process...
