Chronic somatic conditions, such as psoriasis, arthritis psoriatica and rheumatoid arthritis, have a large impact on patients' lives. Tailored therapist-guided internet-based cognitive-behavioural therapy (ICBT) has been shown to be effective in improving physical and psychological well-being in these patients. Two cases are presented here, in order to provide an in-depth illustration of the course and content of this novel treatment and to investigate the therapeutic alliance in an online treatment. After face-to-face intakes, both patients received therapist-guided ICBT tailored to their specific problems and treatment goals...

Sonozaki syndrome--pustulotic arthro-osteitis (PAO) is a relatively rare, chronic illness. This disease belongs to the group of psoriatic arthritis (psoriasis arthropatica, artropatia psoriatica) which in turn belongs to the group of seronegative arthritis. Sonozaki syndrome includes palmoplantar pustulosis, PPP as well as arthro-osteitis. Clinically, symmetrically localised pustulae are observed on feet and hands. Effected joints are painful, swollen with a visible inflammation. Here, we describe a case of a woman aged 55 with a diagnosis of Sonozaki syndrome and hyperthyroidism...

Adalimumab is a human, recombinant antibody, which is effective in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis, psoriasis, arthritis psoriatica, spondylitis ankylopoetica, as well as with Crohn-disease. Adalimumab has got a high affinity binding to tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alfa), this way it inhibits the interactions with TNF and its receptors (soluble and membrane associated). It is well tolerated and safe, it improves the the quality of life. Possible side effects can be decreased by the careful observation and usual control of patients...

OBJECTIVE: We undertook an observational study to obtain a complete overview of the long-term effectiveness and safety of etanercept in patients with different juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) subtypes. METHODS: At baseline we collected patient and disease characteristics of all Dutch patients with JIA who started treatment with etanercept. Disease activity was evaluated (at start of the study, after 3 months and then yearly) according to the JIA core set of the American College of Rheumatology paediatric definition for 30, 50 and 70% improvement (ACR Pedi 30, 50 and 70)...

The symptoms ofpsoriatic arthritis vary from arthralgia and enthesitis to chronic erosive and mutilating arthritis, and are seen in 6-39% of all psoriasis patients. Because of increasing awareness of the clinical signs of psoriatic arthritis among both dermatologists and rheumatologists, the diagnosis ofpsoriatic arthritis is made more often; this is important since earlier diagnosis and treatment can avoid irreversible joint destruction. The overlap between the immunological mechanisms in the pathogenesis ofpsoriasis and psoriatic arthritis has led to the identification of common therapeutic targets, of which tumour-necrosis factor (TNF) is the most important...

A 33-year-old man with generalized vulgar psoriasis type I and psoriatic arthritis was admitted to the Naftalan Special Hospital on February 21, 2000. He was immobile and complained of severe pain in all his joints. Since the patient had suffered from the disease for 10 years without showing any improvement after different therapies, his cutaneous and joint lesions gradually worsened and eventually resulted in generalized psoriasis and mutilating arthritis. Nevertheless, the patient was discharged from our hospital in better condition...

Synovitis (inflammatory arthritis), acne (pustulosa), pustulosis (psoriasis, palmoplantar pustulosis), hyperostosis (acquired), and ostitis (bland osteomyelitis) are symptoms forming the acronym SAPHO, which is a syndrome of nosologic heterogeneity. All entities forming the SAPHO syndrome are connected by a non-obligate dermatoskeletal association with an aseptic pustulous character. 86 cases were analyzed clinically, radiologically and by histology/histopathology. 31 adult patients showed the typical triad of pustulosis palmo-plantaris (psoriatica, PPP), sterno-costo-clavicular hyperostosis (SCCH), and "productive" spondylopathy, which we define as entity I...

Clinically the nail organ ist easy to investigate. When estimating dermato-rheumatological diseases, knowledge of important associated nail symptoms is extremely helpful. In some diseases like osteoarthropathia psoriatica and special variants, Reiter's syndrome and connective tissue disease, typical or even characteristic symptoms can be found. In other disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, goal and systemic vasculitis, associated nail disorders are not uncommon, but of less diagnostic specificity. We review data from the literature and from our dermato-rheumatological outpatient clinic...

Arthritis psoriatica has been known for over 160 years, however, not long ago it became a separate nosologic unit. In 1964 American Rheumatological Society introduced the name arthritis psoriatica, which is obligatory nowadays. It was thought in the beginning that the inflammation may coexist with psoriasis accidentally only, whereas epidemiological studies, clinical observations and serologic data excluded such a simple relation. Since the international diagnostic criteria were established and also the rheumatoid factor was discovered it has been clear there's a direct relation between arthritis psoriatica and dermatologic changes of a psoriasis type...

Spondarthritis hyperostotica pustulo-psoriatica (Spond.hyp.pp-Schilling), corresponding nosologically to pustulotic arthroosteitis, is a dermato-skeletal "double system" disease of adults. It consists of the triad (a) palmo-plantar pustulosis (Ppp) or, alternatively, Königsbeck-Barber-type psoriasis, (b) sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis (SCCH), and (c) truncal-skeletal changes with syndesmophite-like, hyperostotic and/or parasyndesmophite-like ossifications of layers of the anterior vertebral ligament taken together in the sense of a desmophytal hyperostosis...

Radiological gout manifestations are detectable in the early stage, but also especially in the chronic stage of gout. Whereas in the early stage only soft tissue mutations (bursitis inflammation) and light calcium deposits are usually discernible, chronic gout leads to asymmetrical, diverse forms of osseous destruction, favouring smaller joints, but also affecting larger ones, which are caused by the intra-articular and extra-articular deposit of tophus material, corresponding to the progression and degree of severity of the illness...

Serum levels of sCD44v5 were measured in 134 patients with definite inflammatory rheumatic diseases (IRD) using a sandwich type ELISA. 94 patients suffered from erosive IgM-rheumatoid factor positive rheumatoid arthritis (RA+), 20 with undifferentiated seronegative polyarthritis, 12 with osteoarthropathia psoriatica and psoriasis vulgaris, 3 with systemic lupus erythematosus, 3 with scleroderma and 2 with reactive arthritis. Elevated serum levels (> 58 ng/ml to 221 ng/ml; median: 93 ng/ml) were only detected in 54/94 (57%) patients with RA+, but not in other IRD...

We report two cases of retroperitoneal fibrosis which were found in 38 patients with "spondarthritis hyperostotica pustulo-psoriatica" (spond.hyp.p.-p.). Spond.hyp.p.-p. is associated with sternocosto-clavicular hyperostosis and resembles pustulotic arthroosteitis and SAPHO syndrome. However, as dermatologically and osteo-histopathologically documented, it is an enthesiopathic and hyperostotic form of spondarthritis psoriatica. Both cases show a lumbosacroiliac hyperostosis (LSIH) which is a rare analogue to sternocosto-clavicular hyperostosis (SCCH)...

Pustulotic arthroosteitis is characterized by the association of inflammatory and hyperostotic skeletal changes, primarily of the anterior chest wall, and chronic recurrent skin lesions of the palms and soles known as pustulosis palmaris et plantaris. Since its first description by Sonozaki in 1981 in Japan, it has also been reported by several European authors and become widely accepted as a separate entity within the spectrum of the seronegative spondylarthropathies. In this report, we describe 11 cases seen in our clinic in the years 1985 to 1992...

Although the pathogenesis of psoriasis vulgaris is still unknown, several characteristics point to an immunologically mediated process. Epidermal psoriatic lesions are characterized by a hyperproliferation of keratinocytes and an infiltration of T lymphocytes and granulocytes. Because the former may be mediated in part by lymphokines secreted by T cells, we have focused our interest on the in vivo and in vitro cytokine secretion patterns of T lymphocytes from psoriatic lesions. In five patients T lymphocytes were obtained from epidermal specimens...

A psoriatic osteoarthropathy localized in the left quadrant of a male patient is described. Diagnosis was made on the basis of bone scintigraphy (specific distribution pattern) and histological evaluation of a bone biopsy. There is no indication of psoriasis in the patient's family. Nor is there an association to psoriasis-typical HLA markers. Psoriasis of the skin has not been found. Environmental factors, including a Köbner phenomenon on the skeleton resulting from a trauma 13 years ago (hallux rigidus operation), are discussed in connection with this manifestation...
