    Department of Rheumatology and Metabolic Bone Diseases. Hospital de Santa Maria. Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte. Lisbon. Portugal.
    The adult onset Still's Disease is an uncommon entity characterized by multiple clinical manifestations. Pneumonitis, less often considered, deserves particular emphasis given the need for differential diagnosis and because it can progress to severe respiratory failure. With the aim to highlight the pulmonary parenchyma involvement in patients with adult onset Still's Disease, we present a case report which progresses with pneumonitis.

    Adult onset Still's disease is uncommon in middle-aged and elderly individuals and can rarely present with shock; shock is usually associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation, multiorgan dysfunction syndrome or acute respiratory distress syndrome. We report a post-menopausal woman with arthritis, fever, pneumonitis and hypotension which was managed as septic shock. Steroids were inadvertently missed during the second day of hospitalization in the intensive care unit. Read More

    Cardiopulmonary involvement in adult-onset Still's disease is not as common as cutaneous and articular involvement. Pleuropericarditis is the most frequent thoracic manifestation. Although difficult, diagnosis of other thoracic manifestations, which may reveal the disease, is crucial, due to the high risk to life and the efficacy of new immunosuppressive agents. Read More
