A 54-year-old Japanese man noticed painful swelling and redness of his left leg. He was admitted for treatment of cellulitis, which was accompanied with increased anti-streptolysin O and anti-streptokinase titers in his clinical course. After Piperacillin/Tazobactam administration, the skin lesion resolved. However, the patient then developed arthritis, palpable purpura, and intermittent abdominal pain, later found to be secondary to a severe duodenal ulcer. He was diagnosed with cellulitis-associated anaphylactoid purpura and was given prednisolone, which dramatically improved his symptoms...

BACKGROUND: An anaphylactoid purpura affects small capillaries in the skin and other organs. Although two cases of anaphylactoid purpura exacerbated by cellulitis have been reported in Japanese literatures, its prognosis remains still unclear. Because cellulitis exacerbates various cutaneous inflammations, it has been speculated that cellulitis might also exacerbate cutaneous inflammation, such as vasculitis. FINDINGS: In this article, we report that 78-year-old woman exhibited anaphylactoid purpura, following cellulitis...

Little attention has been so far paid to familial cases of Henoch-Schönlein syndrome. We performed a search of the Medical Subject Headings terms (Henoch or Schönlein OR anaphylactoid purpura OR IgA nephropathy OR Berger nephropathy) AND (family OR familial). We identified no more than 19 reports including 47 families with a total of 100 affected cases: their ages ranged from 1.3 to 51 years (median, 11 years), with a male-to-female ratio of 1.4. Familial cases developed simultaneously in 45% and nonsimultaneously in 55% of the families...

BACKGROUND: As the morphological and immunohistochemical manifestations of immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy and Henoch-Schonlein purpura nephritis (HSPN) are very similar, they are considered to share a common pathogenesis. Although HSPN usually develops after the appearance of anaphylactoid purpura, we have encountered patients whose renal symptoms preceded purpura. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical courses of patients who were first diagnosed with IgA nephropathy, but developed purpura later, at the National Center for Child Health and Development in Tokyo, Japan...

Anaphylactoid purpura, also known as Henoch-Schönleinpurpura (HSP), is an IgA-mediated vasculitis that tends to be a benign disease of childhood. Up to 50% of cases are preceded by an upper tract respiratory infection caused by group-A beta-hemolytic streptococcus and present with the common tetrad of abdominal pain, arthritis, purpuric rash, and renal involvement. The majority of patients recover completely. Here we document a rare case of anaphylactoid purpura which manifested with skin lesions in the form of palpable purpura following about of acute gastroenteritis with severe dehydration; it was treated with a short regimen of steroid therapy, which resulted in the complete remission of the disease...

This retrospective single-center study assessed the incidence and clinical features of immune manifestations of refractory cytopenia of childhood (RCC) and childhood aplastic anemia (AA). We evaluated 72 children with RCC and 123 with AA between February 2008 and March 2013. RCC was associated with autoimmune disease in 4 children, including 1 case each with autoimmune hemolytic anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and anaphylactoid purpura. No children with AA were diagnosed with autoimmune diseases...

Increasing evidence shows that TIM-1 and TIM-3 in-fluence chronic autoimmune diseases, and their expression levels in immune cells from nephritic patients are still unknown. Real-time transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis was used to deter-mine expression levels of TIM-1 and TIM-3 mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from 36 patients with minimal change glo-merulopathy (MCG), 65 patients with lupus nephritis (LN), 78 patients with IgA nephropathy (IgAN), 55 patients with membranous nephropa-thy (MN), 22 patients with crescentic glomerulonephritis (CGN), 26 patients with anaphylactoid purpura nephritis (APN), and 63 healthy controls...

Hippocrates of Kos is well known in medicine, but his contributions to pediatric dermatology have not previously been examined. A systematic study of Corpus Hippocraticum was undertaken to document references of clinical and historical importance of pediatric dermatology. In Corpus Hippocraticum, a variety of skin diseases are described, along with proposed treatments. Hippocrates rejected the theory of the punishment of the Greek gods and supported the concept that dermatologic diseases resulted from a loss of balance in the body humors...

BACKGROUND: Adoptive immune cell transfer such as cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells has become an important adjuvant approach in patients with tumours. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyse the adverse events (AEs) that occur during the transfusion of autologous CIK cells and to identify the risk factors associated with these AEs. METHODS: Cell infusion-associated AEs were evaluated according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Chronic abdominal pain is one of the most common chief complaints, but the underlying pathophysiology often remains unknown after routine clinical evaluation. Capsule endoscopy (CE) is a new technique for the visualization of the entire small bowel. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of CE in patients with chronic abdominal pain of obscure origin. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two hundred forty three patients with chronic abdominal pain with no significant lesions were enrolled in this study...

Cases of Henoch-Schönlein purpura and purpura nephritis accompanied by pulmonary hemorrhage are rare. Mild cases are easily ignored due to a lack of evident bleeding, and severe cases may be fatal. We have only treated one patient with Henoch-Schönlein nephritis (HSPN), a female child. The clinical manifestations were not evident, however, the imaging manifestations were clear. Finally, the patient was definitively diagnosed with HSPN accompanied by pulmonary hemorrhage. Following treatment with antiinflammatory and steroidal agents, tripterygium glycosides and traditional Chinese medicine, the patient recovered...

Reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome (RPLS) is a recently identified clinical and radiologic entity. The characteristic radiologic findings are bilateral gray and white matter edema in the posterior regions of the cerebral hemispheres. The typical clinical syndrome includes headache, confusion, visual symptoms, and seizures. RPLS most often occurs in the setting of hypertensive crisis, preeclampsia, or with cytotoxic immunosuppressive therapy, but many other clinical settings are described, such as cryoglobulinemia, hemolytic uremic syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, and use of erythropoietin...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the living donor selection, donor hepatectomy technique, and surgical complication in living donor liver transplantation. METHODS: From June 2007 to July 2008, 74 consecutive cases living donor hepatectomy were performed by the same surgical team. Seventy-four donors (64 males and 10 females) with a mean age of 29.2 years old passed the donor liver assessment and evaluation program successfully. The hepatectomy procedure types contained right liver resection (n = 72), of which 27 cases harvested the middle hepatic vein and 45 cases not, left liver resection contain middle hepatic vein (n = 1) and left lateral resection (n = 1)...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the effect of composite salvia injection (CSI) on platelet parameters in children with anaphylactoid purpura (AP) and its clinical significance. METHODS: One hundred and fifty children with AP were assigned to two groups, 80 in Group A and 70 in Group B. They were treated, respectively, with conventional therapy only or conventional therapy combined with CSI. Their platelet parameters, including blood platelet count (BPC), mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW) and plateletcrit (PCT) were determined at the acute stage and convalescent stage, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence of mite sensitivity in patients with urticaria or other skin rashes, and to observe the clinical efficacy of a specific immunotherapy (SIT) by the Injection dermatophagoides farinae for the patients. METHODS: In 7-year period (1998-2005), skin prick test (SPT) with a dust mite (Df) allergen was carried out to detect the prevalence of mite sensitivity in OPD patients suffering from skin rashes. Among the patients sensitive to mite with SPT > or =++ response, 3 groups were established...
