Molecular genetic investigation, clinical features, and response to treatment in 21 patients with Schnitzler syndrome.

Blood 2018 Mar 28;131(9):974-981. Epub 2017 Dec 28.

National Amyloidosis Centre, University College London (UCL), London, United Kingdom.

To date, the pathogenic mechanisms underlying Schnitzler syndrome remain obscure, in particular, the interplay between the monoclonal protein and increased interleukin-1β (IL-1β) production, although interest in the contribution of genetic factors has been fueled by detection of somatic mosaicism in 2 patients with the variant-type Schnitzler syndrome. At 2 specialist UK centers, we have identified 21 patients who fulfilled diagnostic criteria for Schnitzler syndrome with urticarial rash, fever, arthralgia, and bone pain; 47% reported weight loss, 40% fatigue, and 21% lymphadenopathy. An immunoglobulin M (IgM) κ paraprotein was detected in 86%; the remainder had IgM λ or IgG κ. Read More

Kidney involvement in the Schnitzler syndrome, a rare disease.

Clin Kidney J 2017 Dec 26;10(6):723-727. Epub 2017 Jul 26.

Rare Diseases and Periodic Fevers Research Centre, Fondazione Policlinico Gemelli, Catholic University, Rome, Italy.

The Schnitzler syndrome (SS) is a rare and underdiagnosed entity that associates a chronic urticarial rash, monoclonal IgM (or sometimes IgG) gammopathy and signs and symptoms of systemic inflammation. During the past 45 years, the SS has evolved from an elusive little-known disorder to the paradigm of a late-onset acquired auto-inflammatory syndrome. Though there is no definite proof of its precise pathogenesis, it should be considered as an acquired disease involving abnormal stimulation of the innate immune system, which can be reversed by the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist anakinra.

Schnitzler Syndrome With Delirium and Vertigo: The Utility of Neurologic Manifestations in Diagnosis.

J Drugs Dermatol 2017 Jun;16(6):625-627

Schnitzler syndrome (SS) is an autoinflammatory dermatosis that often goes undiagnosed for 5-6 years. Patients typically carry a diagnosis of urticaria; however, their cutaneous symptoms fail to respond to typical urticaria therapies and lack symptoms such as pruritus. Additionally, patients with SS may see multiple providers for nonspecific complaints of fever, lymphadenopathy, arthralgias, and bone pain. Read More

Interleukin-1 Blockade: An Update on Emerging Indications.

BioDrugs 2017 Jun;31(3):207-221

Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunity, Jessa Hospital, Stadsomvaat 11, 3500, Hasselt, Belgium.

Interleukin (IL)-1 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that induces local and systemic inflammation aimed to eliminate microorganisms and tissue damage. However, an increasing number of clinical conditions have been identified in which IL-1 production is considered inappropriate and IL-1 is part of the disease etiology. In autoinflammatory diseases, gout, Schnitzler's syndrome, and adult-onset Still's disease, high levels of inappropriate IL-1 production have been shown to be a key process in the etiology of the disease.

Institute of Clinical Neuroscience and Medical Psychology, Medical Faculty, Heinrich-Heine-University, Duesseldorf, Germany; Institute of Neuro- und Sensory Physiology, Medical Faculty, Heinrich-Heine-University, Duesseldorf, Germany.

Accumulation of ammonium and glutamine in blood and brain is a key factor in hepatic encephalopathy (HE) - a neuropsychiatric syndrome characterized by various cognitive and motor deficits. MRI imaging identified abnormalities notably in the basal ganglia of HE patients, including its major input station, the striatum. While neurotoxic effects of ammonia have been extensively studied, glutamine is primarily perceived as "detoxified" form of ammonia. Read More

Schnitzlers syndrome is an acquired auto-inflammatory disease of still unclear origin. The Strasbourg criteria were adopted (non-infectious fever, chronic urticaria, changes in the bone structure, leukocytosis and higher values of inflammatory markers - CRP and presence of monoclonal immunoglobulin mostly of type IgM, very rarely of IgG) to establish this diagnosis. The first-choice therapy for this disease is the blocking of interleukin-1 effects. Read More

Department of General Internal Medicine, University Hospitals Leuven, Belgium.

Objectives: The Schnitzler syndrome is a rare inflammatory disorder, with a chronic urticaria-like rash and an IgM (rarely IgG) monoclonal gammopathy as cardinal features. Interleukin-1 β is regarded as the key mediator and the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist anakinra has been proposed as first-line treatment. This case series of eleven patients is intended to enhance disease awareness and to compare our centre's experience with that of literature. Read More

Old Dogs, New Tricks: Monogenic Autoinflammatory Disease Unleashed.

Annu Rev Genomics Hum Genet 2016 08 2;17:245-72. Epub 2016 Jun 2.

Metabolic, Cardiovascular, and Inflammatory Disease Genomics Branch, National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland 20892; email:

Autoinflammatory diseases are inborn disorders of the innate immune system characterized by episodes of systemic inflammation that are mediated largely by myeloid cells. The field of autoinflammatory diseases has been established since 1999, following the identification of the first genes underlying periodic fever syndromes. This review focuses on developments that have transformed the field in the last two years. Read More

Schnitzler Syndrome Without a Monoclonal Gammopathy: A Case Report.

J Cutan Med Surg 2016 Nov 29;20(6):575-578. Epub 2016 Jun 29.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Background: Schnitzler syndrome (SS) is a rare autoinflammatory disorder characterized by a recurrent urticarial rash and a monoclonal immunoglobulin M gammopathy, as well as 2 of the following minor criteria: recurrent fever (>38°C), objective signs of abnormal bone remodeling, elevated C-reactive protein level or leukocytosis, and a neutrophilic infiltrate on skin biopsy. Alternatively, a monoclonal immunoglobulin G gammopathy may be present along with 3 minor criteria for diagnosis.

Objective: To report a rare case of SS without monoclonal gammopathy and inform physicians of this possible clinical presentation so that treatment is not delayed. Read More

Cutaneous manifestations of multiple myeloma and other plasma cell proliferative disorders.

Semin Oncol 2016 06 23;43(3):395-400. Epub 2016 Feb 23.

Plasma Cell Disorders Program, Department of Hematologic Oncology and Blood Disorders, Levine Cancer Institute, Carolinas HealthCare System, Charlotte, NC. Electronic address:

Plasma cell proliferative disorders cause rare but extremely varied dermatologic manifestations that may occur as an accompaniment to established diagnoses, or may be a first clue of an underlying neoplasm in the setting of clinical suspicion. In some instances skin lesions result from aggregation of misfolded monoclonal immunoglobulins or their fragments, as in light chain-related systemic amyloidosis. On other occasions the cutaneous lesions result from deposits of malignant plasma cells or monoclonal proteins. Read More
