A prospective study of anterior chest wall involvement was conducted in 50 ankylosing spondylitis patients and 50 psoriatic arthritis patients in the absence of palmoplantar pustulosis. All patients underwent a physical examination, tomograms, and a radionuclide bone scan. Magnetic resonance imaging with gadolinium was done in some cases. Half the patients(More)
The authors report an 80-year-old woman who was evaluated for pain in her left leg and ankle. Sixteen years earlier, she had received a diagnosis of monostotic Paget's disease at the same site, based on roentgenographic changes. The lesion was very unusual, with tumor-like lysis of the affected area and fusion of the tibia, fibula, and talus.
Thirty-six patients with giant cells arteritis were studied retrospectively. Histological examination of the temporal artery or another artery was positive in 95% of cases. Mean follow-up was five years. A synthetic antimalarial was used in every case. Two groups were differentiated. One (Group I) was composed of 21 patients who were given the antimalarial(More)
We used magnetic resonance imaging in a prospective cross-sectional study to evaluate the components of axial involvement in spondylarthropathies, to determine whether the entire intervertebral disk is an enthesis and to gauge how useful this imaging technique is in detecting enthesitis of the spine. Thirty-one patients with spondylarthropathies and 14(More)
We describe 2 cases of a lupus syndrome induced by sulfasalazine in rheumatoid arthritis. All symptoms resolved and antihistone antibodies disappeared when sulfasalazine was discontinued. In one patient, perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies with specificity for myeloperoxidase were found critically increased just before the occurrence of(More)
