Clin Exp Rheumatol 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Department of Rheumatology, the Second Hospital of Shanxi Medical University, Taiyuan, Shanxi, China.

Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination is widely practiced around the world to protect against the mycobacterial infection tuberculosis. BCG is also effective against the pathogenic mycobacteria that cause leprosy and Buruli's ulcer. BCG is part of the standard of care for bladder cancer where, when given as an intravesicular irrigant, BCG acts as an immunomodulating agent and lessens the risk of recurrence. Read More

Recurrent auricular inflammation with pain and swelling is due to the composition and environmental exposures experienced by the constituent parts of the ear. A painful, swollen ear may suggest acute perichondritis, subperichondrial hematoma or relapsing polychondritis (RP). Here, we report a case of a 51-year-old Asian man who had an approximately 2-year history of recurrent auricular swelling and was referred for suspected RP. Read More

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Cerrahpasa Medical School, Istanbul University - Cerrahpasa, Cerrahpasa, 34998, Istanbul, Turkey.

Relapsing polychondritis is a systemic inflammatory disease that mainly affects ears, nose, eyes, joints, and large airway. Relapsing polychondritis may also affect cardiac valves and large vessels with the aorta being most frequently involved. We conducted a systematic literature review to delineate the clinical characteristics, treatment, and outcome of relapsing polychondritis patients with aortic involvement including thoracic and abdominal aorta, aortic valve, and coronary arteries.

Relapsing polychondritis is a rare autoimmune condition characterized by episodic and progressive cartilaginous inflammation. Its clinical presentation is vastly divergent and can affect various organs. We report the uncommon case of large airway involvement in a patient presenting with shortness of breath on the background of diagnosed relapsing polychondritis. Read More

Assessment of TNF-α inhibitors in airway involvement of relapsing polychondritis: A systematic review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Nov;98(44):e17768

Department of Respiratory Diseases, Reims University Hospital.

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare immune-mediated disease affecting cartilaginous structures. Respiratory tract manifestations are frequent and constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The present review of the literature was designed to assess the efficacy of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) inhibitors in respiratory tract involvement of RP. Read More

Miscellaneous Ocular Symptoms in a Case of Relapsing Polychondritis.

Ocul Immunol Inflamm 2019 Oct 30:1-3. Epub 2019 Oct 30.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Kochi Medical School, Kochi University, Nankoku City, Kochi, Japan.

Purpose: To report a case of miscellaneous ocular symptoms associated with relapsing polychondritis (RP).

Case Report: A 58-year-old man presented with multiple ocular symptoms including both anterior and posterior scleritis, conjunctivitis, eyelid edema, eye movement disorder, keratitis, and retinopathy. Miscellaneous systemic inflammation in the right auricle as well as nasal and laryngeal cartilage was also evident together with vestibular and auditory nerve disorders. Read More

Reconstructive rhinoplasty with costal cartilage grafting: A case report of relapsing polychondritis.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2019 Oct 20;20(5):341-344. Epub 2019 Oct 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Konkuk University Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare autoimmune disorder of unknown etiology characterized by recurrent episodes of inflammation and the destruction of cartilaginous tissues, primarily involving the ear, nose, and the respiratory tract. Nasal chondritis is present in 24% of patients at the time of diagnosis and develops subsequently in 53% throughout the diseases progress. Progressive destruction of nasal cartilage leads to the characteristic flattening of the nasal bridge, resulting in the saddle nose deformity. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel.

: Mutations in have been mainly associated with X-linked incomplete congenital stationary night blindness (icCSNB). Variable phenotypic expression in females was reported in some families. We report here three non-related Ashkenazi Jewish families originating in Eastern Europe, that included males and a many affected females, initially diagnosed with variable retinal phenotypes.

Imaging of Thoracic Wall Abnormalities.

Korean J Radiol 2019 10;20(10):1441-1453

Department of Radiology, Jewish General Hospital, Montreal, Canada.

Identification of certain abnormalities of the chest wall can be extremely helpful in correctly diagnosing a number of syndromic conditions and systemic diseases. Additionally, chest wall abnormalities may sometimes constitute diagnoses by themselves. In the present pictorial essay, we review a number of such conditions and provide illustrative cases that were retrospectively identified from our clinical imaging database. Read More

Evaluation of computational genotyping of structural variation for clinical diagnoses.

Gigascience 2019 09;8(9)

Human Genome Sequencing Center, Baylor College of Medicine, 1 Baylor Plaza, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Background: Structural variation (SV) plays a pivotal role in genetic disease. The discovery of SVs based on short DNA sequence reads from next-generation DNA sequence methods is error-prone, with low sensitivity and high false discovery rates. These shortcomings can be partially overcome with extensive orthogonal validation methods or use of long reads, but the current cost precludes their application for routine clinical diagnostics.

Ankylosing spondylitis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and relapsing polychondritis are immune-mediated inflammatory diseases with variable involvement of lungs, heart and the chest wall. Ankylosing spondylitis is associated with anterior chest wall pain, restrictive lung disease, obstructive sleep apnea, apical fibrosis, spontaneous pneumothorax, abnormalities of cardiac valves and conduction system, and aortitis. Patients with IBD can develop necrobiotic lung nodules that can be misdiagnosed as malignancy or infection. Read More
