BACKGROUND: MEditerranean FeVer (MEFV) gene encodes for the pyrin protein and a mutated pyrin is associated with a prolonged or augmented inflammation. Hence, various diseases were reported to be associated with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) or carriers of MEFV mutations. However, systematic evaluation of all associated diseases in children with FMF has not been done previously. AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency and type of FMF-associated diseases in children...

Systemic rheumatoid vasculitis (SRV) can develop in rheumatoid arthritis of long duration and high disease activity. It most commonly manifests as cutaneous vasculitis and mononeuritis multiplex. This can involve any organ of the body and carries very high mortality. We report a case of a young male who had rheumatoid arthritis for the past 15 years and became refractory to standard drugs and anti-TNF agents. He subsequently developed SRV, which started as mononeuritis multiplex. Disease progressed to result in gangrene of hands and feet despite receiving intravenous cyclophosphamide...

A 75-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with rapidly deteriorating consciousness disturbance. She had a 7-year history of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), which had been treated with methotrexate (MTX) and prednisolone. Brain T2-weighted MRI showed diffuse high-intensity lesions in the cerebral subcortical and deep white matter, bilateral basal ganglia and thalamus. A cerebrospinal fluid examination revealed elevated protein levels and positive Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA. Human immunodeficiency virus was negative...

BACKGROUND: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) are improving prognosis in advanced stage cancers, but also lead to immune-related adverse events (IRAE). IRAEs targeting many organ systems have been reported, but musculoskeletal and rheumatic IRAE have not been well characterized. We systematically reviewed published literature on musculoskeletal and rheumatic IRAE to better understand prevalence and clinical characteristics. METHODS: Medline and CENTRAL databases were searched for articles reporting rheumatic and musculoskeletal IRAEs secondary to ICI treatment...

Vasculitis has been described in most types of inflammatory arthritis. The best described and most widely recognised form is rheumatoid vasculitis. The incidence of systemic rheumatoid vasculitis has declined significantly following the general early use of methotrexate in the 1990s, and it is now a rare form of vasculitis. Treatment of rheumatoid vasculitis is conventionally with glucocorticoids and cyclophosphamide, but there is an increasing role for rituximab similar to that in other types of vasculitis...

BACKGROUND: In this study, we aimed to clarify both systemic and local prognosis after surgical interventions for critical limb ischaemia (CLI) due to vasculitis or connective tissue related disease, and to search for any risk factors that can worsen the prognosis. METHODS: One hundred and ninety three patients that underwent surgical interventions for CLI between 2005 and 2014 were followed up for a median of 2.7 years. The patients were grouped into a group with vasculitis or connective tissue related disease (V) or with atherosclerosis (control: C)...

Many chronic rheumatic diseases have an inflammatory etiology, leading to accelerated atherosclerosis and increased occurrence of vascular diseases. In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a reduction in cardiovascular (CV) events has been reported under treatments reducing systemic inflammation. Areas covered: Given the central role of tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) in chronic inflammatory conditions and in atherosclerosis, it has been suggested that TNFα-antagonists may reduce CV risk and mortality. Although there are no randomized controlled or head-to-head trials investigating the effect of specific anti-TNF-agents on CV outcomes, observational cohort studies, national registry data, and meta-analyses in RA have reported improved CV outcomes with anti-TNF therapy...

The aim of this study was to determine whether intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) polymorphisms are associated with susceptibility to vasculitis or rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Meta-analyses were performed to assess the associations between K469E and G241R polymorphisms of ICAM-1 and vasculitis or RA. A total of 12 studies on 1,368 patients and 1,922 controls, which comprised 8 vasculitis studies and 4 RA studies, were included in the meta-analysis. We found no significant association between vasculitis and K469E E allele among the various subjects (OR = 1...

Leflunomide is an immunomodulatory drug exhibiting anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative and immunosuppressive effects. It has been widely used for treatment of active rheumatoid arthritis. Despite its good safety profile cutaneous side effects like alopecia, eczema, pruritis and dry skin have been reported with Leflunomide use. Skin ucleration, vasculitis, lichenoid drug rash and Subacute Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (SCLE) have been rarely reported with its use. A rare case of Leflunomide induced SCLE is being reported in a female patient with rheumatoid arthritis...

Background. Renal-limited myeloperoxidase vasculitis with simultaneous rheumatoid arthritis is reported as a rare occurrence. Review of literature suggests that most patients had a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis for several years prior to presenting with renal failure from myeloperoxidase vasculitis. Case Presentation. A 58-year-old Caucasian male presented to the hospital experiencing malaise, fevers, decreased oral intake, nausea, and vomiting for one week duration. His past medical history consisted of newly diagnosed but untreated rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus...

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are increasingly studied and used as therapy for a growing number of malignancies. ICIs work by blocking inhibitory pathways of T-cell activation, leading to an immune response directed against tumors. Such nonspecific immunologic activation can lead to immune-related adverse events (IRAEs). Some IRAEs, including inflammatory arthritis, sicca syndrome, myositis, and vasculitis, are of special interest to rheumatologists. As use of ICIs increases, recognition of these IRAEs and developing treatment strategies will become important...

Rheumatoid vasculitis is a rare and late complication of rheumatoid arthritis and may affect small-to-medium-sized vessels. Here, we report a case of a 49-year-old man who presented with amaurosis fugax in the left eye, symmetric polyarthritis, Raynaud's symptoms and paraesthesia in both lower extremities. The patient subsequently experienced right foot drop, nail fold infracts and gangrene of his right second toe. He was found to have a high titre of rheumatoid factor and treatment with rituximab and high dose of corticosteroids led to significant improvement of his symptoms...

A 55-year-old man with rheumatoid arthritis presented hyperkeratotic erythematous papules with crusts or blisters on his limbs and buttocks. A histological study showed acquired reactive perforating collagenosis. Soon, skin lesions changed to umbilicated lesions with black necrosis, and the scar from his skin biopsy ulcerated with induration due to rheumatoid vasculitis. Systemic corticosteroids and tacrolimus administration resolved the rheumatoid arthritis and skin lesions. Rheumatoid vasculitis with acquired reactive perforating collagenosis has not been reported previously...

PURPOSE: Autoimmune diseases are a common cause of delayed wound healing and should be considered in patients with chronic wounds who do not respond to local wound care or who fail skin grafting in the absence of infection. RECENT FINDINGS: Epidemiologic studies have shown that, of patients with chronic wounds evaluated in specialized wound healing clinics, 20-23% have autoimmune etiologies for their wounds including vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, pyoderma gangrenosum and other autoimmune diseases...

A 54 year-old woman with a 3-year history of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) consulted us because of weight loss, fever and skin eruption. On physical examination, erythematous plaques with a pseudo-vesicular appearance were seen on the back of both shoulders. Histological examination was consistent with rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatosis (RND). After three days of prednisone treatment, the skin eruption resolved. RND is a rare cutaneous manifestation of seropositive RA, characterized by asymptomatic, symmetrical erythematous plaques with a pseudo-vesicular appearance...

Basic research is showing new mechanisms involved in early immune responses and Neutrophil Extracellular Trap (NET) formation (or NETosis) is of key importance as first line defense against bacteria, virus and protozoa. Enzymatic modification of arginine in citrulline in histones is the prerequisite of NETosis being it necessary for decondensation and extrusion of DNA from cells; it is conceivable that other post translational modifications may occur during this event. There is consensus in considering that post translational modified proteins may elicit an autoimmune response that leads to the formation of autoantibodies...

OBJECTIVES: Behçet's syndrome (BS) is a systemic vasculitis, which may involve multiple organ systems simultaneously. Clinical findings in BS often fit into well-recognized patterns, such as the association between papulo-pustular skin lesions and arthritis. We have recently observed a distinct pattern, in which a subtype of neuro-Behçet's syndrome (NBS) is often preceded by specific ophthalmic manifestations of the disease process. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the association between the parenchymal subtype of NBS and posterior uveitis (PU)...
