Scleroderma in children.
TLDR
Contractures around joints were readily evident and arthralgias were common, but evidence of objective arthritis was absent, and three of 15 children with scleroderma died 6-10 years after onset of disease. Expand
The association of autoimmune diseases and anti-IgA antibodies in patients with selective IgA deficiency.
TLDR
Patients with rheumatic diseases and SIgAD may be particularly at risk of developing anti-IgA-mediated reactions to blood products. Expand
Childhood dermatomyositis: factors predicting functional outcome and development of dystrophic calcification.
TLDR
A subgroup of children with dermatomyositis who appear to do poorly despite optimal therapeutic regimens is identified, distinguished by a severe disease course responding minimally to corticosteroid therapy and manifested by persistent muscle weakness, elevations of muscle enzyme activity, and severe generalized cutaneous vasculitis. Expand
Fat-suppressed MR imaging of myositis.
TLDR
It is concluded that T2 fat suppression is useful in evaluation of inflammatory muscle disorders in children because it increases contrast and eliminates fat as a cause of muscle abnormality. Expand
Patterns of calcification in childhood dermatomyositis.
TLDR
The radiographs of 40 patients with childhood dermatomyositis, an uncommon inflammatory disease, were reviewed and soft-tissue calcification was identified in 40% of cases, a lower incidence than previously reported. Expand
A syndrome of childhood polyarteritis.
TLDR
Nine children with polyarteritis have had evidence of systemic involvement and serious complications of disease have included myocardial infarction, hypertension, and impaired renal function. Expand
Scleroderma in the child.
TLDR
The presence of visceral disease may be overlooked unless specific diagnostic procedures such as pulmonary function testing, gastrointestinal radiographs, esophageal motility studies, and plethysmography are routinely employed since the patients may be asymptomatic. Expand
Distal interphalangeal joint abnormalities in children with polyarticular juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
There was a strong correlation between the presence of extraarticular signs and symptoms and involvement of the DIP joints; however, this may reflect the greater severity of the disease in these patients generally. Expand
Clinical correlates of antinuclear antibodies in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
In juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, ANA were found significantly more frequently in girls, in patients with early onset of disease or whose present age was young, and in those with polyartsicular disease or with monarticular disease and iridocyclitis. Expand
