REVIEW
A Rubbert-Roth, J T Bittenbring, G Assmann
Various systemic inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Sjögren's syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are associated with an increased risk for the development of lymphomas. Studies on patients with RA and Sjögren's syndrome have shown that there is a clear association of the incidence of lymphoma with the severity and activity of the disease and lymphomas in particular are diseases which preferentially occur in immunosuppressed patients; therefore, knowledge of the different lymphoma subtypes, their prognosis and treatment options are important for rheumatologists...

Lupus pneumonitis carries high mortality and is a rare manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, it is difficult to diagnose and is often mistaken as pneumonia, alveolar haemorrhage, or organizing pneumonia. Previous studies demonstrated that serum anti-Ro antibodies are elevated more frequently in SLE patients with pneumonitis than in those without. We report a 21-year-old female who was newly diagnosed as having SLE with nephritis and who suddenly developed right lung opacity and rapidly progressed to severe hypoxaemia despite the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics...

Pregnancy in women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) remains a high risk. We successfully managed a pregnancy in a patient with SLE-PAH. A 31-year-old pregnant woman with SLE-PAH had worsening PAH and SLE flare-up during pregnancy and a sudden increase in pulmonary arterial pressure after delivery. SLE-PAH was controlled by continuous intravenous epoprostenol and inhaled nitric oxide therapy combined with high-dose corticosteroids under close hemodynamic monitoring...

Objective We assessed publication bias in the field of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) by conducting a search of randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) on SLE therapies that had been published over the past 45 years. Our aim was to assess a potential publication bias by determining whether RCTs reporting positive results, RCTs with placebo arms, biologics RCTs, and industry-funded RCTs are more likely to be published in journals with higher impact factors (IFs). Methods We conducted a systematic review of all RCTs registered in PubMed between 1 January 1975 and 1 November 2016...

Despite high-dose corticosteroids alone or with immunosuppressive agents as the standard therapy in lupus myocarditis (LM), an immune complex-mediated critical setting, such management is still associated with resistant disease and even mortality. A retrospective study was performed for the refractory LM patients treated with rituximab (RTX), a very limited experience in English literatures. A retrospective review of the myocarditis manifestation was carried out in hospitalized Han Chinese patients with SLE from February 2007 to January 2017...

A 63-year-old man with occupational exposure to silica presented with cutaneous ulcer, pleuritic pain, and a fever. Laboratory data showed lymphopenia and positive serum antinuclear and anti-DNA antibodies. Computed tomography of the chest showed egg shell-like calcification of the hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes without pulmonary parenchymal involvement of silicosis. A surgical biopsy showed silicotic nodules with surrounding infiltration of lymphocytes and plasma cells in the parietal pleura. With a diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic corticosteroid therapy was given, which led to the resolution of symptoms and laboratory abnormalities...

Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is a life-threatening complication of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Although infrequent, its mortality is very high. While there are no established therapeutic guidelines, DAH has been traditionally managed with high-dose intravenous (IV) corticosteroids, cyclophosphamide, and plasma exchange. The efficacy of alternative therapies such as rituximab has been described only in a few cases. Herein, we report a 25-year-old Hispanic man who presented with acute-onset SLE manifested by polyarthralgia, nephritis, seizures, pancytopenia, severe hypocomplementemia, and elevated anti-dsDNA antibodies...

BACKGROUND: Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are at an increased risk of acquiring infections due to the disease itself and the immunosuppressive therapy. Furthermore, infections largely contribute to overall SLE mortality. Vaccinations against preventable diseases are therefore of particular importance for these patients. AIMS: To estimate vaccination frequencies among patients with SLE, we studied patients in a survey and calculated vaccination rates based on their vaccination documents...
