BACKGROUND: Juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) is a rare idiopathic inflammatory childhood myopathy of uncertain aetiology. The demographic and clinical presentation of JDM may differ by race and geographic regions. Few studies have described the characteristics of JDM patients from Africa. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective observational study to determine clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients satisfying the Bohan and Peter criteria for probable JDM seen between 2004 and 2013 in three hospitals in Cape Town, South Africa...

OBJECTIVE: Juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) is the most common form of idiopathic inflammatory myopathy in children. While outcomes are generally thought to be good, persistence of skin rash is a common problem. The goal of this study was to describe the development of clinical treatment plans (CTP) for children with JDM characterized by persistent skin rash despite complete resolution of muscle involvement. METHODS: The Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance, a North American consortium of pediatric rheumatologists and other healthcare providers, used a combination of Delphi surveys and nominal group consensus meetings to develop CTP that reflected consensus on typical treatments for patients with JDM with persistent skin rash...

INTRODUCTION: Multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica (NMO) are demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system. Autoimmunity in patients with demyelinating disease and in their families has been broadly investigated and discussed. Recent studies show a higher incidence of rheumatic autoimmune diseases among adult patients with MS or NMO and their families, but there are no studies in the pediatric population. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate an association of MS and NMO with autoimmune rheumatic diseases in pediatric patients...

BACKGROUND: High-dose intravenous immune globulins (IVIg) are frequently used in refractory juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) but are often poorly tolerated. High-dose recombinant human hyaluronidase-facilitated subcutaneous immune globulins (fSCIg) allow the administration of much higher doses of immune globulins than conventional subcutaneous immune globulin therapy and may be an alternative to IVIg. The safety and efficacy of fSCIg therapy in JDM is unknown. CASE PRESENTATION: In this retrospective case series, five patients with steroid-refractory severe JDM were treated with high-dose fSCIg due to IVIg adverse effects (severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, difficult venous access)...

Calcinosis is rarely observed in juvenile-onset amyopathic dermatomyositis in contrast to juvenile-onset dermatomyositis. A 6-year-old female presented with several 0.5 to 2 cm-sized painless grouped masses on both knees for 3 years. The patient also presented with multiple erythematous scaly patches and plaques on both elbows, knuckles, buttock, ankles and cheeks. Her mother had similar skin lesions which were erythematous scaly patches on the knuckles and elbows, since her childhood. When skin biopsy was performed from a left knee nodule, liquid chalky discharge was observed...

Clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM) is an extremely rare entity in childhood and only 75 cases have been described in the literature. These patients present mild or no muscle involvement, while skin involvement is similar to that seen in classic dermatomyositis (DM). Systemic inflammatory vasculopathy is a hallmark of juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM), especially affecting the microcirculation. Nailfold capillaroscopy (NFC) is a non-invasive method that allows direct visualization of nailfold capillary loops around the proximal edge of the finger nails...

We aimed to evaluate the fraction of exhaled nitric oxide (FENO50) and deaerated exhaled breath condensate pH (dEBCpH) as non-invasive markers of subclinical airway inflammation in pediatric patients with rheumatologic disorders. We determined FENO50 and dEBCpH in a prospective study spanning at least 12 months, comprising 85 pediatric patients with rheumatologic disorders, including juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA, n  =  63), chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO, n  =  6), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, n  =  3), juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM, n  =  1) and other rheumatic disorders (n  =  12)...

REVIEW
Adam M Huber, Leanne M Ward
Childhood rheumatic diseases are associated with negative impacts on the skeleton, related to both the underlying illness and complications of therapy. The effects of medications like corticosteroids are well recognized, leading to reductions in bone mineral density and bone strength and concomitant increases in bone fragility and fracture risk. The impact of factors directly attributable to the underlying disease is not as well recognized. In this article, we review relevant literature to identify data which can contribute to an understanding of the impact of childhood rheumatic disease on the skeleton...

OBJECTIVE: To study for the first time in a randomized controlled trial the feasibility, safety and efficacy of an exercise training programme in children and adolescents with JDM. METHODS: Patients were randomly assigned to the Intervention Group (IG; n = 14) or Waiting Control Group (WCG; n = 12). The intervention comprised an individually tailored 12-week home-based exercise programme of treadmill interval training and strength exercises. The efficacy of the IG over usual care (WCG) was examined with mixed linear regression (intention-to-treat)...

BACKGROUND: Clinically distinct autoimmune phenotypes share genetic susceptibility factors. We investigated the prevalence of familial autoimmunity among subjects with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), childhood systemic lupus erythematosus (cSLE) and juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) in the CARRA Registry, the largest multicenter observational Registry for pediatric rheumatic disease. METHODS: Children with JIA, cSLE and JDM enrolled in the CARRA Registry between May 2010 and May 2012 were investigated for differences in proportion of subjects who had first-degree relatives (FDR) with autoimmunity...

OBJECTIVE: To identify differentially expressed microRNA (miRNA) in muscle biopsies (MBx) from 15 untreated children with juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) compared with 5 controls. METHODS: Following MBx miRNA profiling, differentially expressed miRNA and their protein targets were validated by quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) and immunological assay. The association of miRNA-10a and miRNA-10b with clinical data was evaluated, including Disease Activity Score (DAS), von Willebrand factor antigen (vWF:Ag), nailfold capillary end row loops, duration of untreated disease, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α-308A allele...

Juvenile dermatomyositis and juvenile scleroderma are rare multisystem autoimmune disorders. Although they share some pathognomonic hallmarks with adult onset myositis or scleroderma, there are significant differences in presentation, characteristics and associated features when the diseases present in childhood. In view of this, and the rarity of the conditions, it is important for care to be led by teams with expertise in pediatric rheumatology conditions. Prognosis has improved significantly in the West; likely due to early diagnosis and aggressive treatment with immunosuppressive medications...

OBJECTIVE: Autoantibodies to the dense fine speckled 70 kDa antigen (DFS70) are reported to be more common in individuals who do not have an antinuclear antibody (ANA)-associated rheumatic disease (AARD) than in patients with AARD. The frequency of anti-DFS70 antibodies has been thoroughly studied in adult but not in pediatric populations. The primary objective of this observational study was to determine the frequency of anti-DFS70 in pediatric AARD and reference cohorts. METHODS: Sera from 743 children with AARD and related conditions, and 345 samples from reference cohorts (healthy children and those being investigated for AARD) were studied for anti-DFS70 autoantibodies as measured by a chemiluminescence immunoassay...

OBJECTIVE: Outcome of JDM is highly heterogeneous. Our objective was to determine clinical and muscle biopsy features associated with poor outcome and response to treatment. METHODS: Clinical data and muscle biopsy were obtained from a monocentric cohort of 29 patients. Clinical subgroups were defined by latent class model analysis of initial and follow-up parameters. Myopathological features were analysed using validated scores. Capillary loss was determined on reconstructions of transversal sections and assessed in the different age groups to take into account variations of muscle capillarization during post-natal development...

Association of Kocher-Debré-Semelaigne syndrome-a myopathy of hypothyroidism in childhood characterized by muscular hypertrophy, with rhabdomyolysis is very rare. We present a case of Kocher-Debré-Semelaigne syndrome with rhabdomyolysis secondary to Hashimoto's thyroiditis. He had muscular symptoms simulating poly/dermatomyositis, massively elevated creatine kinase (CK) levels and high creatinine levels. All of the findings reversed on treatment of hypothyroidism. The response to the therapy strongly suggested that Kocher-Debré-Semelaigne (KDS) syndrome was the underlying etiology...

INTRODUCTION: We explored the use of quantitative muscle ultrasonography (QMUS) for follow-up of juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM). METHODS: Seven JDM patients were evaluated at diagnosis and 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 months using the Childhood Myositis Assessment Scale (CMAS) and QMUS. Muscle thickness (MT) and quantitative muscle echo intensity (EI) were assessed with QMUS in 4 muscles. RESULTS: Six patients experienced a monocyclic course. At diagnosis EI was slightly increased, and MT was relatively normal...
