IgG4-related kidney disease and retroperitoneal fibrosis: An update.

Mod Rheumatol 2019 Mar 8;29(2):231-239. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

c Faculty of Medicine, Division of Nephrology and Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine , Fukuoka University , Fukuoka , Japan.

The most representative kidney lesion of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is plasma cell-rich tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) with distinctive imaging findings including multiple low-density lesions on contrast-enhanced computed tomography. In addition, membranous glomerulonephritis is a representative glomerular lesion of this disease. Recent advances have clarified that inflammation with IgG4-positive plasma cell infiltrates is not restricted to the renal parenchyma, but can be seen in outside the renal capsule, around medium-sized arteries such as lobar arteries, around nerves, and in the renal pelvis and periureter.

Purpose: To assess the frequency with which previously reported characteristic findings of retroperitoneal fibrosis (RPF) (a circumferential or almost circumferential peri-aortic mass centered at L4, which does not displace the abdominal aorta or proximal common iliac arteries) are present in patients with RPF, in patients with other fibrosing diseases, and in cancer patients referred to a subspecialty clinic with a suspected diagnosis of RPF, in order to determine whether diagnostic percutaneous biopsy can be avoided in some patients.

Methods: This HIPAA-compliant Institutional Review Board-approved retrospective study assessed clinical and CT and MR imaging abnormalities on imaging studies in 92 patients referred to a subspecialty clinic with suspected RPF over a 14-year period. Two reviewers, in consensus, determined the frequency of different CT and MRI findings in three groups of patients (Group 1: those with an eventual diagnosis of RPF, Group 2: those with a fibrosing disease associated with vascular or urologic abnormalities, and Group 3: those with cancer).

Jaccoud's arthropathy, an unusual manifestation of idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis: rapid improvement of symptoms after tocilizumab treatment.

Reumatismo 2017 Aug 3;69(2):88-91. Epub 2017 Aug 3.

Rheumatology Unit, San Giovanni di Dio Hospital, Florence.

Jaccoud's arthropathy (JA) is a chronic, non erosive, rheumatoid-like deformity associated with rheumatic fever (RF) and systemic lupus erythematosus and with other diseases such as psoriatic arthritis, connective tissue diseases, hypocomplementemic urticarial vasculitis, infections, sarcoidosis and neoplasia. We described a case of JA in a patient with cutaneous psoriasis but with a particular disease evolution associated with idiopathic retropritoneal fibrosis (IRF), evaluated with computed tomography, magnetic resonance and 18F-FDG PET/ CT. The patient, following failure with steroids, methotrexate and etanercept, was treated with tocilizumab (8 mg/kg) once every 4 weeks for 6 months. Read More

G Ital Nefrol 2017 Aug 1;34(4):72-82. Epub 2017 Aug 1.

Struttura Complessa di Nefrologia e Dialisi, Ospedale DiVenere, Bari.

We describe the case of a 45-year-old woman with a clinical history of breast cancer presenting with anuric renal failure, metabolic acidosis and bilateral grade 2-3 hydronephrosis. Following insertion of bilateral ureteral stents, urinary output was 5000 ml in the subsequent 24 hours with frankly bloody urine, after which anuria recurred. A new ultrasound examination showed hydronephrotic kidneys with properly positioned stents, a distended bladder free of clots and a hypo-anechoic, well-demarcated mass enveloping the aorta.
