[Ab] Abstract:Advanced imaging techniques may enable early diagnosis and monitoring of therapy in various rheumatic diseases. To prevent irreversible tissue damage, inflammatory rheumatic disease must be diagnosed and treated in pre-clinical stages, requiring highly sensitive detection techniques. Positron emission tomography (PET) provides highly sensitive, quantitative imaging at a molecular level, revealing the important pathophysiological processes underlying inflammation. This review provides an overview of the current utility of 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET/computed tomography (CT) in patients with active rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, adult-onset Still's disease, relapsing polychondritis, immunoglobulin G4-related disease, large-vessel vasculitis, Wegener's granulomatosis, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis. We also discuss the role of FDG-PET/CT in the diagnosis and monitoring of these diseases.

[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Susac's syndrome (SS) is a rare immune disorder. It combines encephalopathy, retinopathy and hearing loss. We report a new pediatric case, revealed by an occlusive retinal arteritis. CASE REPORT: A 12-year-old girl presented to the emergency room because of sudden onset of photopsias in her right temporal visual field. One year previously, she had developed an acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, resolving with steroids. Visual acuity was 10/10-P2 in both eyes. Fundus examination revealed a thin right inferior nasal artery. Fluorescein angiography revealed an occlusion of this artery and occlusive peripheral arterial vasculitis. An IV steroid bolus was administered urgently. Brain MRI showed high signal intensity abnormalities in the corpus callosum. The clinical triad was rapidly completed by a bilateral hearing loss. Intravenous immunoglobulins were initiated. The occurrence of contralateral occlusive retinal arteritis two months later led to treatment with cyclophosphamide. After 6 infusions, visual acuity was stable, but the visual field remained, and regression of the vasculitis remained incomplete. DISCUSSION: Three hundred cases of SS have been reported with predominance in young women. Pediatric cases are rare. Diagnosis is difficult, because the typical clinical triad is often incomplete. Occurrence of relapses is unpredictable. Visual prognosis depends on the location of the occluded retinal territories. Treatment, based on a combination of steroids, immunosuppressive and antiplatelet agents is not always able to prevent relapse, as in our case. CONCLUSION: Unpredictable progression of SS requires early diagnosis and treatment as well as close monitoring. It must always be considered in the case of any occlusive retinal arteritis, even in children.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVES: To describe short-term (up to 12 months) and long-term (up to 7 years) damage in patients with newly diagnosed antineutrophil-cytoplasm antibody-associated vasculitis (AAV). METHODS: Data were combined from six European Vasculitis Study group trials (n=735). Long-term follow-up (LTFU) data available for patients from four trials (n=535). Damage accrued was quantified by the Vasculitis Damage Index (VDI). Sixteen damage items were defined a priori as being potentially treatment-related. RESULTS: VDI data were available for 629 of 735 patients (85.6%) at baseline, at which time 217/629 (34.5%) had ≥1 item of damage and 32 (5.1%) ≥5 items, reflecting disease manifestations prior to diagnosis and trial enrolment. LTFU data were available for 467/535 (87.3%) at a mean of 7.3 years postdiagnosis. 302/535 patients (56.4%) had VDI data at LTFU, with 104/302 (34.4%) having ≥5 items and only 24 (7.9%) no items of damage. At 6 months and LTFU, the most frequent items were proteinuria, impaired glomerular filtration rate, hypertension, nasal crusting, hearing loss and peripheral neuropathy. The frequency of damage, including potentially treatment-related damage, rose over time (p<0.01). At LTFU, the most commonly reported items of treatment-related damage were hypertension (41.5%; 95% CI 35.6 to 47.4%), osteoporosis (14.1%; 9.9 to 18.2%), malignancy (12.6%; 8.6 to 16.6%), and diabetes (10.4%; 6.7 to 14.0%). CONCLUSIONS: In AAV, renal, otolaryngological and treatment-related (cardiovascular, disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and malignancy) damage increases over time, with around one-third of patients having ≥5 items of damage at a mean of 7 years postdiagnosis.

[Ab] Abstract:UNLABELLED: Abstract Purpose: Ocular tuberculosis is an extrapulmonary tuberculous condition and has variable manifestations. The purpose of this review is to describe the clinical manifestations of ocular tuberculosis affecting the anterior and posterior segments of the eye in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. METHODS: Review of literature using Pubmed database. RESULTS: Mycobacterium tuberculosis may lead to formation of conjunctival granuloma, nodular scleritis, and interstitial keratitis. Lacrimal gland and orbital caseating granulomas are rare but may occur. The intraocular structures are also a target of insult by M. tuberculosis and may cause anterior granulomatous uveitis, anterior and posterior synechiae, secondary glaucoma, and cataract. The bacillus may involve the ciliary body, resulting in the formation of a localized caseating granuloma. Posterior segment manifestations include vitritis, retinal vasculitis, optic neuritis, serpiginous-like choroiditis, choroidal tubercules, subretinal neovascularization, and, rarely, endophthalmitis. CONCLUSIONS: The recognition of clinical signs of ocular tuberculosis is of utmost importance as it can provide clinical pathway toward tailored investigations and decision making for initiating anti-tuberculosis therapy.

[Ab] Abstract:The vasculitides represent one group of the systemic rheumatic diseases. Among the vasculitides we distinguish between large- (i.e. giant cell arteritis), medium- (i.e. polyarteritis nodosa) and small-vessel vasculitides (i.e. ANCA-associated vasculitides). Granulomatosis with polyangiitis, microscopic polyangiitis and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis belong to the ANCA-associated vasculitides. They share the features of vasculitic manifestations in small- to medium-sized vessel beds (which can occur in almost any organ system) and the presence of ANCA, the detection of which, however, is not necessarily mandatory. The treatment of AAV depends on disease stage and activity and is carried out on the basis of randomized controlled trials with an initial regimen aimed at inducing remission followed by maintenance treatment. In addition to glucocorticoids, conventional immunosuppressants (such as methotrexate, azathioprine and cyclophosphamide) form the basis of treatment, whereby rituximab, first licensed for the treatment of severe active GPA and MPA in 2013, has emerged as new treatment option.

[Ti] Title:Can Wear Explain the Histological Variation Around Metal-on-metal Total Hips?

[Is] ISSN:1528-1132

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: There is a general perception that adverse local tissue reactions in metal-on-metal hip arthroplasties are caused by wear, but the degree to which this is the case remains controversial. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: To what extent is the magnitude of wear associated with (1) the histological changes; (2) presence of metallosis; and (3) likelihood of pseudotumor formation in the periprosthetic tissues? METHODS: One hundred nineteen metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasties and hip resurfacings were selected from a retrieval collection of over 500 implants (collected between 2004 and 2012) based on the availability of periprosthetic tissues collected during revision, clinical data including presence or absence of pseudotumor or metallosis observed intraoperatively, and wear depth measured using a coordinate measurement machine. Histological features of tissues were scored for aseptic lymphocytic vasculitis-associated lesions (ALVAL). Correlation analysis was performed on the three endpoints of interest. RESULTS: With the sample size available, no association was found between wear magnitude and ALVAL score (ρ = -0.092, p = 0.423). Median wear depth (ball and cup) was greater in hips with metallosis (137 µm; range, 8-873 µm) than in those without (18 µm; range, 8-174 µm; p < 0.0001). With the numbers available, no statistically significant association between wear depth and pseudotumor formation could be identified; median wear depth was 74 µm in hips with pseudotumors and 26 µm in those without (p = 0.741). CONCLUSIONS: Wear alone did not explain the histopathological changes in the periprosthetic tissues. A larger sample size and more sensitive outcome variable assessments may have revealed a correlation. However, wear depth has been inconsistently associated with pseudotumor formation, perhaps because some patients with hypersensitivity may develop pseudotumors despite low wear. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Metal wear alone may not explain the histological reactions and pseudotumors around metal-on-metal hip implants.

[Ab] Abstract:Clinical immunology is in the Netherlands a separate clinical specialty within internal medicine and pediatrics. Clinical immunologists work closely together with nephrologists, rheumatologists and many other medical specialists. Apart from research and teaching, clinical immunologists are taking care of patients with immune-deficiencies, vasculitides and systemic auto-immune diseases. Clinical immunology in the Netherlands has always been an important contributor to basic and clinical science in the Netherlands. Major scientific contributions were made in the field of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and ANCA associated vasculitis. These Dutch contributions will be reviewed in this article.
