Adult-Onset Still Disease
TLDR
The condition in highly symptomatic patients evolved to systemic AOSD, whereas more progressive patterns with arthritis predicted chronic AOSS, and GF and 18FDG-PET scans were of value in the diagnostic approach.
Thymoma associated with autoimmune diseases: 85 cases and literature review.
TLDR
The results confirm previous data concerning AD occurrence in patients with thymoma and suggest that preexisting autoimmunity is not a risk factor for developing autoimmune manifestations after thymectomy.
Adult Kawasaki disease: report of two cases and literature review.
TLDR
Although adult KD often was diagnosed after the acute phase, when a significant beneficial effect from gammaglobulin infusion could not be expected, this treatment did appear to shorten the course of the disease, and KD is a rare condition, which may go unrecognized.
Spinal cord sarcoidosis: report of seven cases
TLDR
This study highlights the need to understand more fully the mechanism behind spinal cord involvement in sarcoidosis before deciding whether or not to operate on patients with spinal cord injuries.
Lupus-like presentation of parvovirus B19 infection.
TLDR
Although B19 may modulate the clinical and biological features of rheumatic disease, studies in large series do not support a causative role for B19 in the pathogenesis of SLE.
Sarcoidosis and uveitis.
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria for sarcoidosis uveitis when biopsy is unavailable or negative are established based on a combination of ophthalmological findings and laboratory tests, and infliximab and adalimumab have been recently proposed for the treatment of refractory or sight-threatening systemic sarcoIDosis.
The role of 2‐deoxy‐2‐[F‐18]fluoro‐D‐glucose positron emission tomography in disseminated carcinoma of unknown primary site
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the efficacy of 2‐deoxy‐2‐[F‐18]fluoro‐D‐glucose positron emission tomography (FDG‐PET) in the detection of primary tumors in patients with disseminated carcinoma of unknown primary site is conducted.
Hypothalamo-pituitary sarcoidosis: a multicenter study of 24 patients.
TLDR
Although HP sarcoidosis is unusual, physicians should be aware that such specific localization of pituitary gland involvement could be the first manifestation of sarCOidosis.
Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography for the Diagnosis of Sarcoidosis in Patients with Unexplained Chronic Uveitis
TLDR
18F-FDG PET may show focal uptake suggestive of sarcoidosis in patients with unexplained uveitis, and the value of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in these patients is evaluated.
