Eighteen patients with an inflammatory pauciarticular peripheral arthropathy not typical of any known entity showed an asymmetrical pattern of disease, with a predilection for the lower extremities. Destructive joint changes and deformities were absent (mean follow-up 10 years). Although spondylitis and sacroiliitis were absent on x-rays, HLA-B27 antigen… (More)
A woman treated with fluoride for corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis presented 1 year later with an unusual localized supraacetabular followed by a same-sided femoral head fracture. Fluoride was increased in serum and urine. Transiliac bone biopsy revealed typical bone fluorosis with elevated trabecular bone fluoride.
Spina bifida is a congenital malformation which occurs during the first weeks after conception. The association with intraspinal tumours, usually lipomas, is well known. During evaluation of back pain, we observed a case of occult spina bifida associated with extra- and intradural lipoma. Simultaneously the patient exhibited cutaneous, orthopedic and… (More)
A 64-year-old woman developed acute Reiter's syndrome 4 weeks after the start of intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin immunotherapy for a recurrent superficial bladder carcinoma. The absence of any other cause suggests that the bacillus played an etiopathogenic role in this HLA-B27-positive patient.
In 13 patients with hydrarthrosis of the knee, samples of synovial fluid and blood were drawn at regular intervals, following a single oral dose of 600 mg proquazone. The concentrations of the unchanged drug were measured fluorimetrically and those of its three principal, active metabolites by high pressure liquid chromatography. The absorption and… (More)
The radial tubercle is rarely the site of enthesopathy. When it occurs, symptoms and radiological images are usually typical enough for unequivocal diagnosis. We report the case of a man with atypical pain and X-rays modifications of the radial tubercle. Correct diagnosis was established by histological analysis. Better knowledge of this pathology should… (More)
