Gut dysbiosis and the clinical spectrum in anti-Ro positive mothers of children with neonatal lupus.

Gut Microbes 2022 Jan-Dec;14(1):2081474

Department of Biostatistics and Data Science, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA.

Anti-SSA/Ro antibodies, while strongly linked to fetal cardiac injury and neonatal rash, can associate with a spectrum of disease in the mother, ranging from completely asymptomatic to overt Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) or Sjögren's Syndrome (SS). This study was initiated to test the hypothesis that the microbiome, influenced in part by genetics, contributes to disease state. The stool microbiome of healthy controls (HC) was compared to that of anti-SSA/Ro positive women whose children had neonatal lupus. Read More

Objective: Transplacental passage of maternal anti-SSA and -SSB antibodies, potentially associated with maternal autoimmune diseases, can cause neonatal lupus syndrome. Given the paucity of data in this setting, we report short- and long-term outcomes of mothers of offspring with congenital heart block (CHB).

Methods: This retrospective study included anti-SSA/SSB antibody-positive mothers of fetuses with high-degree CHB and focused on their health status before pregnancy, at CHB diagnosis, and thereafter. Read More

Auxilin is a novel susceptibility gene for congenital heart block which directly impacts fetal heart function.

Ann Rheum Dis 2022 Apr 25. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden

Objective: Neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE) may develop after transplacental transfer of maternal autoantibodies with cardiac manifestations (congenital heart block, CHB) including atrioventricular block, atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, and cardiomyopathies. The association with anti-Ro/SSA antibodies is well established, but a recurrence rate of only 12%-16% despite persisting maternal autoantibodies suggests that additional factors are required for CHB development. Here, we identify fetal genetic variants conferring risk of CHB and elucidate their effects on cardiac function. Read More

Lupus Pneumonitis: Case Report of a Rare Manifestation of Neonatal Lupus.

J Investig Med High Impact Case Rep 2022 Jan-Dec;10:23247096221077815

Neonatology Department, Centro Hospitalar Universitário de São João, Porto, Portugal.

Neonatal lupus is a rare entity, secondary to placental transfer of antibodies from mothers with immune-mediated conditions. While pulmonary involvement is common in lupus, its incidence in neonates is extremely rare, with very few cases being reported in the literature. The authors report a case of a neonate whose mother was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus, with a prenatal diagnosis of third-degree atrioventricular block. Read More

Annular skin lesions in infancy.

Clin Dermatol 2022 Feb 3. Epub 2022 Feb 3.

Department of Dermatology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Electronic address:

Annular skin lesions have a unique morphology, and the dramatic appearance of these skin eruptions in infants can cause concern for parents and clinicians. Annular lesions appearing during infancy (defined here as birth to 1 year of age) lend to a broad differential, ranging from benign cutaneous disorders to severe systemic diseases. This review summarizes the pathogenesis, clinical and histopathologic findings, and management options of possible etiologies for annular skin lesions in infants, including annular erythema of infancy, neonatal lupus erythematosus, dermatophyte infections, hemorrhagic edema of infancy, and urticaria multiforme.

Anti-Ro52 Autoantibody Is Common in Systemic Autoimmune Rheumatic Diseases and Correlating with Worse Outcome when Associated with interstitial lung disease in Systemic Sclerosis and Autoimmune Myositis.

Edward K L Chan

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2022 Jan 18. Epub 2022 Jan 18.

Department of Oral Biology, University of Florida, 1395 Center Drive, Gainesville, FL, 32610-0424, USA.

This review highlights the 30 plus years research progress since the discovery of autoantibody to Ro52/TRIM21 in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and Sjögren's syndrome (SjS). After the initial expression cloning of the Ro52 cDNA, it has taken many years to the current understanding in the interesting biological function of Ro52 as an E3 ubiquitin ligase and its role in innate immune clearance of intracellular IgG-bound complex. Early observations show that anti-Ro52, mostly associated with anti-SS-A/Ro60 and/or anti-SS-B/La, is commonly found in SLE (40-70%), SjS (70-90%), neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE, 75-90%), and subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (50-60%).

Complete heart block in neonatal lupus: a forgotten cause of fetal bradycardia.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Nov 16;14(11). Epub 2021 Nov 16.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Calmette Hospital, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Department of Systemic Connective Tissue Diseases, National Institute of Geriatrics, Rheumatology and Rehabilitation, 02-637 Warsaw, Poland.

Neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE) is a syndrome of clinical symptoms observed in neonates born to mothers with antibodies to soluble antigens of the cell nucleus. The main factors contributing to the pathogenesis of this disease are anti-Sjögren Syndrome A (anti-SS-A) antibodies, known as anti-Ro, and anti-Sjögren Syndrome B (anti-SS-B) antibodies, known as anti-La. Recent publications have also shown the significant role of anti-ribonucleoprotein antibodies (anti-RNP). Read More
