Thirteen patients who had the co-occurrence of severe Reiter's syndrome and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or its syndromes were studied. The arthritis was reactive in three patients and without defined cause in the others. Nine patients had HLA-B27. The two syndromes appeared simultaneously in four patients, suggesting a common biologic(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical, immunologic, and immunogenetic features of a diffuse infiltrative lymphocytic disorder resembling Sjögren syndrome in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). DESIGN Clinical case study. SETTING University-affiliated hospitals and outpatient clinics. PATIENTS Consecutive sample of 17 patients.(More)
Information bearing on the prevalence and character of Reiter's syndrome and allied disorders as they occur in a setting of HIV infection was reviewed. Based on the frequency of infections by organisms capable of inducing reactive arthritis and the presence of HLA-B27 in 71% of the individuals, it was concluded that the disorder strongly resembled Reiter's(More)
T cells play a prominent role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis. Abatacept is the first FDA approved agent for rheumatoid arthritis that blocks the activation of T cells by interrupting the interaction between the CD28 ligand on the T cell and the CD80/86 ligand on the antigen presenting cell. Inhibition of T cell activation has pleotropic effects(More)
One of the unanticipated consequences of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the appearance of various rheumatic syndromes that traditionally have been thought to result from inappropriate overactivity of the immune system. This distinctive spectrum of rheumatic syndromes has been well described; however, the therapeutics and specific(More)
The association of the class II genes of the DRw10 haplotype from a cell line, NASC, initiated from a member of a well characterized family, was analyzed by sequencing cDNA clones corresponding to DR beta I, DQ alpha, and DQ beta genes. An identical haplotype was also identified in the Raji cell line. In addition to typing as DRw10 and DQw1 with HLA typing(More)
INTRODUCTION Clinicians may be confronted with difficult-to-treat psoriasis cases for which there are scant data to rely upon for guidance. To assist in managing such patients, who are typically excluded from clinical trials, a consensus panel of 14 experts in the field of psoriasis was formed to conduct a Delphi method exercise. METHODS The exercise(More)
SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) is a rare chronic inflammatory musculoskeletal disorder of unknown etiology observed in children and young adults, which involves both osteo-articular inflammation and skin abnormalities. We review the case of a 22-year-old male, who presented with a 5-year history of hidradenitis(More)
A 62-year-old woman with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis presented for evaluation and treatment of a one-week history of pruritic, pink spots on her trunk and extremities. Several weeks prior, therapy with certolizumab pegol and methotrexate was started for her psoriatic arthritis. A biopsy specimen was consistent with the diagnosis of porokeratosis.(More)
INTRODUCTION Traditional clinical trials in psoriasis exclude a significant proportion of patients with complex disease and comorbidities. A consensus panel of 14 experts in the field of psoriasis was formed to conduct a Delphi method exercise to identify difficult-to-treat psoriasis clinical scenarios and to rank treatment approaches. METHODS The(More)
