Nailfold capillaroscopy for the early diagnosis of the scleroderma spectrum of diseases in patients without Raynaud's phenomenon.

J Scleroderma Relat Disord 2022 Jun 21;7(2):144-150. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.

Background: The utility of nailfold capillaroscopy in the evaluation of patients without Raynaud's phenomenon is unclear.

Objective: This study aims to compare the utility of nailfold capillaroscopy for the early diagnosis of the scleroderma-spectrum of diseases in patients who present with Raynaud's phenomenon, undifferentiated non-Raynaud's phenomenon features and positive systemic sclerosis-associated antibodies without scleroderma-spectrum of disease features.

Methods: Eligible patients were divided into three referral criteria groups: (I) Raynaud's phenomenon; (II) Undifferentiated non-Raynaud's phenomenon features and (III) Positive systemic sclerosis-associated autoantibodies without features to suggest scleroderma-spectrum of diseases. Read More

Calcinosis (hydroxyapatite and calcium phosphate crystal deposition) within the extracellular matrix of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue is a frequent manifestation of adult and pediatric systemic autoimmune rheumatic diseases, specifically systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, mixed connective tissue disease and systemic lupus erythematosus. In this article, we review classification of calcinosis, highlight mechanisms that may contribute to the pathogenesis of calcinosis and summarize the evidence evaluating non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic interventions for the treatment of calcinosis.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus vs. Mixed Connective Tissue Disease Disguised As Scabies.

Cureus 2022 Mar 29;14(3):e23621. Epub 2022 Mar 29.

Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that involves numerous body systems and may initially present as a malar or discoid rash. When there are features of other autoimmune disorders present, such as scleroderma or polymyositis, the term mixed connective tissue disorder (MCTD) may be used. The current literature illustrates that the diagnostic criteria for MCTD are unclear. Read More

Autoimmune diseases after allogeneic stem cell transplantation: a clinician's guide and future outlook.

Expert Rev Clin Immunol 2022 May 12:1-14. Epub 2022 May 12.

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Unit, Department of Hematology-Oncology, IRCSS Istituto G. Gaslini I Istituto GGaslini, Genova, Italy.

Introduction: Autoimmune disease (AD) may occur after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). The autoimmune mechanism seems to be related to an imbalance of the immune regulation effect of T-regulatory lymphocytes on autoreactive T-lymphocytes.

Areas Covered: ADs include hematological ADs (HADs) and nonhematologic ADs (NHADs) involving organs such as thyroid, peripheral and central nervous system, skin, liver, connective tissue, gastrointestinal tract, and kidney. Read More

Introduction: Mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) is a rare autoimmune condition characterized by Scleroderma, Polymyositis, and Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE). Though a possible relationship between COVID-19 and autoimmune diseases has been recently reported, its pathophysiological mechanism behind flares in Lupus Nephritis (LN), a complication of SLE, remains unknown.

Case Presentation: A 22-year-old COVID-19 positive female presented with anemia, bilateral pitting edema, periorbital swelling, and posterior cervical lymphadenitis. Read More

[Basophils and IgE in autoimmunity: Mechanisms and therapeutic targets].

Med Sci (Paris) 2022 Apr 29;38(4):366-373. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Université Paris Cité, Centre de recherche sur l'inflammation, Inserm UMR1149, CNRS ERL8252, Faculté de médecine site Bichat, Paris, France - Université Paris Cité, Laboratoire d'excellence Inflamex, Paris, France.

Understanding the pathophysiology of antibody-driven autoimmune diseases (AAID) represents a major challenge for the biomedical community to develop innovative therapeutic strategies that are still lacking to control these diseases. If the reason why AAID are developing still needs to be defined, loss of tolerance to self-antigens leads to the development of an autoimmune chain reaction in some individuals. However, autoreactive antibodies are present in a large proportion of the general population without any associated pathological condition. Read More

Connective tissue disease-related interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD) and interstitial lung abnormality (ILA): Evolving concept of CT findings, pathology and management.

Eur J Radiol Open 2022 7;9:100419. Epub 2022 Apr 7.

Department of Radiology, Samsung Changwon Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine (SKKU-SOM), ChangWon, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea.

Connective tissue diseases (CTDs) demonstrating features of interstitial lung disease (ILD) include systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic sclerosis (SSc), dermatomyositis (DM) and polymyositis (PM), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), Sjogren syndrome (SS), and mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD). On histopathology of lung biopsy in CTD-related ILDs (CTD-ILDs), multi-compartment involvement is an important clue, and when present, should bring CTD to the top of the list of etiologic differential diagnoses. Diverse histologic patterns including nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP), organizing pneumonia, apical fibrosis, diffuse alveolar damage, and lymphoid interstitial pneumonia can be seen on histology in patients with CTD-ILDs.

Associations between quality of health care and clinical outcomes in patients with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases: a rehabilitation cohort study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Apr 15;23(1):357. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

National Advisory Unit on Rehabilitation in Rheumatology, Division of Rheumatology and Research, Diakonhjemmet Hospital, PO Box 23, Vinderen, N-0319, Oslo, Norway.

Long-term evaluation of pulmonary function and survival of patients with interstitial pneumonia with autoimmune features.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2022 03 30. Epub 2022 Mar 30.

Division of Rheumatology, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC, USA.

Objectives: Interstitial pneumonia with autoimmune features (IPAF) includes patients with interstitial lung disease with autoimmune features who do not meet criteria for a connective tissue disease (CTD). Previous studies showed a wide variation in the radiologic pattern, pulmonary function and prognosis but there is still limited data on longitudinal outcomes. We aim to describe the long-term pulmonary function, radiological patterns, and survival of IPAF patients and explore a classification based on CTD-like subgroups by using clinical/serologic data.

Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Science Center at Permian Basin, Odessa, USA.

Pulmonary manifestations can be present in 20-80% of patients having mixed connective tissue disorder (MCTD) and are usually subacute. MCTD when associated with polymyositis can rarely involve the diaphragm, causing respiratory failure.

Effect of Levosimendan on Acute Decompensated Right Heart Failure in Patients With Connective Tissue Disease-Associated Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2022 4;9:778620. Epub 2022 Mar 4.

Department of Cardiology, 1st Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, Harbin, China.

Aims: Acute decompensated right heart failure (RHF) in chronic precapillary pulmonary hypertension is often typified by a swiftly progressive syndrome involving systemic congestion. This results from the impairment of the right ventricular filling and/or a reduction in the flow output of the right ventricle, which has been linked to a dismal prognosis of short duration. Despite this, there are limited therapeutic data regarding these acute incidents. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Feb 19;15(2). Epub 2022 Feb 19.

Univ Auckland, Hamilton, New Zealand.

Type B insulin resistance syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder affecting glucose homeostasis characterised by the presence of serum autoantibodies to the insulin receptor. Typically, these patients present with severe insulin resistance although a mixed hyperglycaemic and hypoglycaemic phenotype may also occur, as can an exceptionally rare isolated hypoglycaemia presentation. The classic biochemical pattern comprises elevated insulin levels despite significant hypoglycaemia. Read More
