OBJECTIVE: Describe malignancy rates in childhood onset and adult onset systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) by proportional meta-analysis. METHODS: Two reviewers screened data from PubMed (1966-2015), EMBASE (1980-2015), and LILACS (1982-2015) for SLE-associated malignancy. Proportional meta-analysis with a random-effects model and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated according to SLE onset age and mean follow-up time. Statistical difference was defined by 95% CI overlap...

We describe six patients with cutaneous lupus erythematosus (cLE) during immunoglobulin G (IgG) treatment. Five patients were diagnosed with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and one patient with possible CIDP. Five patients received intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) and one patient subcutaneous immunoglobulin (SCIg). Skin lesions were systematically assessed by a dermatologist including skin biopsies. Patients showed disseminated erythematous plaques on several parts of the body with predominance of the chest and face...

Introduction Lupus nephritis (LN) is one of the most common complications of systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) responsible for an increase in mortality and morbidity. This study was conducted to evaluate the outcome for LN patients and factors that correlate with their outcome. Materials and methods We included 80 patients with proved LN and more than three-years follow up at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. We prepared a data gathering sheet for each patient and extracted the data from patients' file records which existed in the hospital...

Degos disease, also referred to as malignant atrophic papulosis, was first described in 1941 by Köhlmeier and was independently described by Degos in 1942. Degos disease is characterized by diffuse, papular skin eruptions with porcelain-white centers and slightly raised erythematous telangiectatic rims associated with bowel infarction. Although the etiology of Degos disease is unknown, autoimmune diseases, coagulation disorders, and vasculitis have all been considered as underlying pathogenic mechanisms. Approximately 15% of Degos disease have a benign course limited to the skin and no history of gastrointestinal or central nervous system (CNS) involvement...

Seizures are one of the most serious neuropsychiatric manifestations of systemic lupus erythematous (SLE). This descriptive and retrospective study aims at describing clinical and paraclinical features and therapeutic approach of seizures in patients with SLE. The characteristics of the seizure group was compared to those of a control group (patients with LES who had not presented seizures). A total of 177 patients were included in these analyses. Among them, 14 (8 %) developed seizures before, at or after the SLE diagnosis...

Systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) is a chronic inflammatory disease with an unknown etiology and an autoimmune pathogenesis, and its clinical manifestations can involve multiple organs through polymorphic biological changes. Nowadays, pregnancy is possible for most patients with SLE, and good outcomes can be expected for both mother and child. This became possible as a consequence of increasingly better monitoring and treatment of pregnant women with SLE. The following article outlines the problems associated with fertility, course of pregnancy, and breastfeeding in women with SLE...

Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) is a well-defined subtype of lupus erythematosus, characterised by photosensitivity, annular and/or psoriasiform lesions, variable systemic involvement and presence of circulating SSA/anti-Ro antibodies. SCLE may be idiopathic or drug-induced. Both the idiopathic and drug-induced forms of SCLE are analogous in their clinical, serological and histological features. Drug-induced SCLE has been reported with various oral agents, but to our knowledge this is the first reported case due to a topical medication...

Systemic lupus erythematous is a multi-organ autoimmune disease in which the patient has "lost" self- tolerance and developed immune-complexes containing self-antigen that cause disease through tissue inflammation and multi-organ damage. Patients often have unpredictable flares in symptoms with poorly identified triggers. However, it has been suggested in other literature that exogenous exposures, including ingested beef, cigarette smoke, UV radiation, metal-complexing agents, and infections can contribute to exacerbations and improvements in SLE symptoms...

We report the case of a 44-year-old woman with a history of Crohn disease treated with infliximab who presented with erythematous papules and plaques on the upper extremities accompanied by fevers. She was subsequently diagnosed with palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatitis (PNGD). Whereas immune-complex mediated diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus are most commonly associated, inflammatory bowel disease deserves increased consideration as one of the systemic diseases that can present with PNGD...

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a primaryimmunodeficiency disorder that affects the phagocyticcells of the innate immune system. It is characterizedby recurrent or persistent infections with granulomaformation. Lupus-like lesions have been reported incarriers of CGD and less frequently, in patients withCGD. Immunological study in these patients areusually negative. We describe the case of an 8-yearoldboy with CGD who developed chronic and acutecutaneous lupus erythematous with angular cheilitis,oral ulcers, Raynaud phenomenon, and positiveserologies for antinuclear, anticentromere, and anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies...

Background. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease with great heterogeneity in pathogenesis and clinical symptoms. Rheumatoid factor (RF) is one key indicator for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) while immunoglobulin E (IgE) is associated with type I hypersensitivity. To better categorize SLE subtypes, we determined the dominant cytokines based on familial SLE patients. Methods. RF, IgE, and multiple cytokines (i.e., IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-17, IFN-γ, IP-10, MCP-1, and MIP-1β) were measured in sera of familial SLE patients (n = 3), noninherited SLE patients (n = 108), and healthy controls (n = 80)...

BACKGROUND: Twenty-five years ago at the Journées Dermatologiques de Paris, Prof. Béatrice Crickx described a new association, "antimicrobial pustulosis and systemic lupus erythematosus", a condition now known as amicrobial pustulosis of the folds (APF). The aim of this study is to analyse the clinical and laboratory characteristics of APF and to outline the gradual advancement of knowledge regarding this disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Based on a case of APF seen in our department, we carried out a review of the literature since 1991 by searching the Medline database for scientific articles using the following keywords: "Amicrobial Pustulosis" or "Pustular Dermatosis" and "Folds"...

INTRODUCTION: Headache is a common neuropsychiatric manifestation of juvenile systemic lupus erythematous (JSLE). Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is an uncommon cause of headache, presenting especially in active JSLE. In this paper, we report a case of missed intractable headache that was eventually diagnosed as PTC and presented as the first manifestation of JSLE. CASE PRESENTATION: A 9-year-old girl with a history of progressive headache for four months, fever, fatigue, myalgia, arthralgia, small-joint arthritis of the hands, and recent diplopia was referred to our clinic...

Cutaneous adverse drug reactions are among the most common noninfectious rashes of childhood. Cutaneous adverse drug reactions are classified as morbilliform, urticarial, bullous, pustular, or psoriasiform. Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common inflammatory cutaneous eruptions, and is characterized by pruritus and flexural distribution. Emollients and topical corticosteroids are first-line therapies. Topical calcineurin inhibitors are second-line, steroid-sparing drugs for certain conditions, such as face and eyelid eczema...

Objective People affected by chronic rheumatic conditions, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), frequently rely on the Internet and search engines to look for terms related to their disease and its possible causes, symptoms and treatments. 'Infodemiology' and 'infoveillance' are two recent terms created to describe a new developing approach for public health, based on Big Data monitoring and data mining. In this study, we aim to investigate trends of Internet research linked to SLE and symptoms associated with the disease, applying a Big Data monitoring approach...
