Lipoprotein glomerulopathy is a disease characterized by intraglomerular lipoprotein thrombi and abnormal lipid metabolism similar to type III hyperlipoproteinemia. Recently, glomerular lesions compatible with lipoprotein glomerulopathy were found in a 38-year-old man. In this case, plasma apolipoprotein (apo) E level was elevated, and the apo E isoform was heterozygous E2/3, ...
Borba E F - - 1993
Although myelofibrosis has been described in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), this coexistence must be rare since there are few reports showing this combination. The possible relationship between hematologic abnormalities and SLE remains unresolved. The authors describe a 39-year-old woman with persistent neutropenia and SLE in whom myelofibrosis was found. Unlike ...
Teitel A D - - 1992
Laryngeal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) can range from mild ulcerations, vocal cord paralysis, and edema to necrotizing vasculitis with airway obstruction. In this report, four cases showing the range of severity of this disease manifestation are presented, accompanied by a comprehensive review of the literature. The clinical course ...
Kanno T - - 1992
A 14-year-old female developed systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)-like symptoms, rash, fever, leukopenia and positive anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) two weeks after administration of carbamazepine (CBZ; Tegretol) used against benign Rolandic epilepsy.

Sarcoidosis resolves spontaneously in many cases on a long-term basis. However, there are many cases whose resolution is delayed. We have experienced a frequent association of chronic tonsillitis (CTL), and dental caries in those patients of persistent course. We hypothesized that the presence of chronic or recurrent inflammatory foci in ...
George M K - - 1991
The facial nerve is commonly involved in neural sarcoidosis, but there is only one reported case in which bilateral facial paralysis was the sole manifestation of sarcoidosis. We report a case of sarcoidosis presenting with bilateral facial paralysis as the only sign. The pathology, clinical presentation, pathophysiology and diagnosis of ...

Nodular regenerative hyperplasia (NRH) of the liver is an uncommon pathologic finding associated, in most cases, with rheumatic and hematologic diseases. Although its pathogenesis remains unclear, NRH probably results from liver regeneration to maintain its functional capacity after ischemia-induced injury. An intrahepatic microvascular occlusive mechanism has been considered most likely ...

Pemphigus vulgaris is extremely rare in childhood. Only 35 cases of juvenile pemphigus vulgaris have been reported in the literature up until to now. During the pre-steroid era, the outcome of the disease was usually regarded as fatal. Today, the prognosis has improved because of the possibility of early diagnosis ...
Provenza J M - - 1991
A 33-yr-old black female with systemic sarcoidosis developed chylous ascites. A CT scan showed extensive mesenteric lymphadenopathy. At laparotomy, the mesenteric and para-aortic lymph nodes were enlarged and diffusely matted. Histologically, normal lymph node morphology was virtually replaced with noncaseating granulomas. Corticosteroids and dietary manipulations were unsuccessful in managing the ...
Feng C S - - 1991
The marrow findings of 23 lupus patients with pancytopenia were reported. The most common findings were dyserythropoiesis and hypoplasia, both occurring in 9/23 (39%) of the cases. Neither feature was definitely related to cytotoxic drug therapy since most cases were treated by steroids only. Three of the hypoplastic marrows also ...
