A rare mutation in hypophosphatasia: a case report of adult form and review of the literature.

Arch Endocrinol Metab 2019 Feb;63(1):89-93

Emory University School of Medicine, Diabetes and Endocrinology Section, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Hypophosphatasia is a rare inborn error of metabolism characterized by low serum alkaline phosphatase activity due to loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding the tissue-nonspecific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP). Extracellular accumulation of TNSALP substrates leads to dento-osseous and arthritic complications featuring tooth loss, rickets or osteomalacia, and calcific arthopathies. Mild hypophosphatasia usually has autosomal dominant inheritance, severe cases are either autosomal recessive or due to a dominant negative effect. Read More

No vascular calcification on cardiac computed tomography spanning asfotase alfa treatment for an elderly woman with hypophosphatasia.

Bone 2019 Feb 28;122:231-236. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO 63110, USA. Electronic address:

Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is the inborn-error-of-metabolism characterized enzymatically by insufficient activity of the tissue-nonspecific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) and caused by either mono- or bi-allelic loss-of-function mutation(s) of the gene ALPL that encodes this cell surface phosphomonoester phosphohydrolase. In HPP, the natural substrates of TNSALP accumulate extracellularly and include inorganic pyrophosphate (PPi), a potent inhibitor of biomineralization. This PPi excess leads to rickets or osteomalacia in all but the most mild "odonto" form of the disease. Read More

Acute pseudogout - Measure serum magnesium.

Ann Clin Biochem 2019 Feb 27:4563219826169. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

4 Blood Sciences, The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, Wolverhampton, UK.

We report a 49-year-old woman with an acute swollen left knee due to acute pseudogout with chondrocalcinosis as a presenting feature of Gitelman syndrome due a novel homozygous mutation of the SLC12A3 gene. This report highlights the under-recognized importance of excluding metabolic disease, including Gitelman syndrome, in younger patients whose sole presenting feature may be chondrocalcinosis with or without pseudogout, as this may impact on management and risk of further episodes. We also suggest that chondrocalcinosis and hypomagnesaemia with or without hypokalaemia are diagnostic of Gitelman syndrome. Read More

Upper Extremities Department, Schulthess Clinic, Zürich, Switzerland; Research and Development Department, Schulthess Clinic, Zürich, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Hypothesis: We hypothesized that treatment of rotator cuff arthropathy (RCA) with reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) and an additional latissimus dorsi transfer (LDT) in patients with an active external rotation deficit (ERD) would restore external rotation (ER) with concomitant deterioration in internal rotation.

Methods: In our cohort study, 26 RCA patients with an active ERD (ie, positive lag sign and maximum active ER of 0°) underwent RSA between September 2007 and February 2015; LDT was completed in 13 of these patients. In addition, 88 control patients without ERD who underwent only RSA were identified. Read More

Asymptomatic focal calcium pyrophosphate crystal deposition within partially failed repair tissue after matrix-assisted autologous chondrocyte implantation.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2018 Sep 10. Epub 2018 Sep 10.

Center of Experimental Orthopaedics, Saarland University, Homburg/Saar, Germany.

Possible failures of autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI), a cell-based technique for articular cartilage repair, are not always clinically apparent and the underlying mechanisms largely remain unknown. This case report presents the first scenario in the literature highlighting an association of a medium-term partial failure of an advanced ACI procedure (matrix-assisted ACI) in the knee with focal asymptomatic calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease, a common inflammatory pyrophosphate arthropathy. The specific presence of CPPDs, resulting from increased biomechanical stresses in the repair tissue-cartilage and repair tissue-subchondral bone integration sites, together with the absence of cartilage regeneration was identified and possibly contributed to the partial failure.

Efficacy and tolerance of anakinra in acute calcium pyrophosphate crystal arthritis: a retrospective study of 33 cases.

Clin Rheumatol 2019 Feb 25;38(2):425-430. Epub 2018 Aug 25.

Service de Rhumatologie, Hôpital Bichat, APHP, Université Paris Diderot, 46 rue Henri Huchard, 75018, Paris, France.

Calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) deposition is a frequent joint disease with increased prevalence in older people in whom treatment of acute CPP arthritis with conventional therapies such as colchicine or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs could be contraindicated or not used at an optimal dose. As recommended in gout, anakinra might represent an alternative treatment for arthritis. We aimed to analyze the efficacy and safety of anakinra in acute CPP arthritis in a large reported series.

[Update on Gout and Calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD)].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2018 Aug 7;143(16):1157-1166. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

The metabolic diseases gout and calciumpyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) (formerly: chondrocalcinosis/pseudogout) are crystal arthropathies which are caused by crystals in synovial fluid and in the case of gout also in periarticular structures. Today, in particular gout is considered as an auto-inflammatory process since phagocytosis of monosodium urate crystals by monocytes/macrophages results in the activation of the innate immune system by activation of the NRLP3-Inflammasome and consecutive secretion of the key cytokine interleukin-1ß and other pro-inflammatory cytokines. The prevalence of both crystal arthropathies rises with increasing age of patients. Read More

SMOC2 inhibits calcification of osteoprogenitor and endothelial cells.

PLoS One 2018 13;13(6):e0198104. Epub 2018 Jun 13.

Laboratory of Tissue Homeostasis and Disease, Skeletal Biology and Engineering Research Center, Department of Development and Regeneration, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

Tissue calcification is an important physiological process required for the normal structure and function of bone. However, ectopic or excessive calcification contributes to diseases such as chondrocalcinosis, to calcium deposits in the skin or to vascular calcification. SMOC2 is a member of the BM-40/osteonectin family of calcium-binding secreted matricellular proteins. Read More

Disease-Associated Particulates and Joint Inflammation; Mechanistic Insights and Potential Therapeutic Targets.

Front Immunol 2018 28;9:1145. Epub 2018 May 28.

School of Biochemistry and Immunology, School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin, Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, The University of Dublin, Dublin, Ireland.

It is now well established that intra-articular deposition of endogenous particulates, such as osteoarthritis-associated basic calcium phosphate crystals, gout-associated monosodium urate crystals, and calcium deposition disease-associated calcium pyrophosphate crystals, contributes to joint destruction through the production of cartilage-degrading enzymes and pro-inflammatory cytokines. Furthermore, exogenous wear-debris particles, generated from prosthetic implants, drive periprosthetic osteolysis which impacts on the longevity of total joint replacements. Over the last few years, significant insight has been gained into the mechanisms through which these particulates exert their effects. Read More
