Neonatal lupus erythematosus presenting with rash, thrombocytopenia compounded by cytomegalovirus colonisation: a diagnostic dilemma.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Jun 11;13(6). Epub 2020 Jun 11.

Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology, Cloudnine Hospital, Gurgaon, Haryana, India.

Neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE) should be considered when a newborn develops atrioventricular heart block along with the presence of autoantibodies to Sjogren's syndrome autoantigens in the maternal serum. NLE can also present with features such as cutaneous lesions, hepatic dysfunction or haematological abnormalities. Differential diagnosis usually includes congenital infections as there is a significant overlap of symptoms with NLE. Read More

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

J Autoimmun 2020 Feb 31;107:102354. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

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

Mothers giving birth to children with manifestations of neonatal lupus (NL) represent a unique population at risk for the development of clinically evident pathologic autoimmunity since many are asymptomatic and only become aware of anti-SSA/Ro positivity (anti-Ro+) based on heart block in their fetus. Accordingly, we hypothesized that the microbiome in saliva is associated with the development of autoreactivity and in some cases the progression in health status from benign to overt clinical disease including Sjögren's syndrome (SS) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The study comprised a clinical spectrum of anti-Ro+ mothers, all of whom gave birth to a child with NL: 9 were asymptomatic or had an undifferentiated autoimmune disease (Asym/UAS) and 16 fulfilled criteria for SS and/or SLE.

Ro60 and Y RNAs: structure, functions, and roles in autoimmunity.

Crit Rev Biochem Mol Biol 2019 04 14;54(2):133-152. Epub 2019 May 14.

a RNA Biology Laboratory, Center for Cancer Research , National Cancer Institute , Frederick , MD , USA.

Ro60, also known as SS-A or TROVE2, is an evolutionarily conserved RNA-binding protein that is found in most animal cells, approximately 5% of sequenced prokaryotic genomes and some archaea. Ro60 is present in cells as both a free protein and as a component of a ribonucleoprotein complex, where its best-known partners are members of a class of noncoding RNAs called Y RNAs. Structural and biochemical analyses have revealed that Ro60 is a ring-shaped protein that binds Y RNAs on its outer surface. Read More

Benefits of fetal echocardiographic surveillance in pregnancies at risk of congenital heart block: single-center study of 212 anti-Ro52-positive pregnancies.

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2019 Jul 7;54(1):87-95. Epub 2019 Jun 7.

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

Objectives: Assuming that autoimmune congenital heart block (CHB) is a progressive disease amenable to therapeutic modulation, we introduced a surveillance program for at-risk pregnancies with the dual aim of investigating if fetal atrioventricular block (AVB) could be detected and treated before becoming complete and irreversible, and to establish the incidence of AVB I, II and III in a large prospective cohort.

Methods: This was a prospective study of 212 anti-Ro52 antibody-exposed pregnancies at risk of fetal AVB that were followed weekly between 18 and 24 weeks' gestation at our tertiary fetal cardiology center from 2000 to 2015. A 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) was recorded within 1 week after birth. Read More

Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology and Allergiology Clinic, PAGNI, Herakleion, Crete, Greece.

Pregnancy in women with SLE (Systematic Lupus Erythematosus) is considered of "high risk" since it has been related with adverse events both in the mother and the foetus. Many studies have reported relapse of the disease during the pregnancy and the first trimester post-labour, while others have found no difference in terms of frequency and type of relapses. Moreover, adverse obstetrical events like recurrent pregnancy loss, preeclampsia, prematurity, intrauterine growth restriction and neonatal lupus syndrome tend to occur more often in patents with SLE.

Children's Heart Institute, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Objective: Maternal anti-Ro/SSA and anti-La/SSB antibodies can lead to fetal complete heart block (CHB). Current guidelines recommend weekly echocardiographic screening between 16 and 28 weeks gestation. Given the cost of screening and the rarity of conduction abnormalities in fetuses of mothers with low anti-Ro levels (<50 U/mL), we sought to identify a strategy that optimizes resource utilization.

Introduction: Pulmonary involvement is relatively frequent in adult and juvenile patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), but its occurrence in newborns with Neonatal Lupus Erythematosus (NLE) is exceedingly rare.

Case Report: A mother with SLE and positive anti-SSA/Ro and anti-SSB/La delivered a preterm newborn with third-degree heart block and positive anti-SSA/Ro confirmed postnatally. A temporary pacemaker was placed at D3 and a definitive pacemaker only at D15 due to sepsis with concurrent mild respiratory failure. Read More

Two case reports of neonatal autoantibody-associated congenital heart block.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(45):e13185

Department of Pediatrics, Affiliated Hangzhou First People's Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, China.

Rationale: Neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE) is an infrequent disease caused by transplacental maternal autoantibodies. The most common effects of NLE include cutaneous involvement and congenital heart block (CHB), although it might involve multiple organs, such as the liver, lungs, blood, and nervous or digestive systems. Izmirly PM1 and Tonello et al recently reported cutaneous manifestations of neonatal lupus and risk of subsequent CHB. Read More

Effect of in utero hydroxychloroquine exposure on the development of cutaneous neonatal lupus erythematosus.

Ann Rheum Dis 2018 12 8;77(12):1742-1749. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Division of Rheumatology, New York University School of Medicine, New York City, New York, USA.

Objective: Cutaneous neonatal lupus (cNL) occurs in possibly 5%-16% of anti-Ro±anti-La antibody-exposed infants. Data suggest in utero exposure to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) may prevent cardiac NL. The aim was to assess whether in utero exposure to HCQ decreases the risk of cNL and/or delays onset. Read More

Hydroxychloroquine for the prevention of fetal growth restriction and prematurity in lupus pregnancy: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Joint Bone Spine 2018 12 6;85(6):663-668. Epub 2018 Apr 6.

Division of Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, 33604 Pessac, France. Electronic address:

Objectives: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that primarily affects women of childbearing age. While the impact of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) on SLE activity and neonatal lupus occurrence has been evaluated in several studies, its role on prematurity and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) remains uncertain. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of HCQ exposure on prematurity and IUGR during pregnancy in women with SLE. Read More

NOTCH4 is a possible novel susceptibility gene for dilated cardiomyopathy in the Chinese population: A case-control study.

J Clin Lab Anal 2018 Jul 26;32(6):e22436. Epub 2018 Mar 26.

Department of Clinical Laboratory, Key Laboratory of Laboratory Medicine of Henan Province, The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou, Henan, China.

Background: The incidence of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) has increased in recent years, and many studies have sought to further improve the general understanding of this condition. Previous studies have demonstrated that some single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with systemic lupus erythematosus also affect susceptibility to DCM, suggesting that immune-related diseases may share similar genetic susceptibility. Recent large-scale and genome-wide association studies have identified NCR3, NOTCH4, CYP1A2, ITGA1, OPRM1, ST8SIA2, and LINC00704 as genetic risk factors associated with cardiac manifestations of neonatal lupus.
