Mucoid Lupus

Lupus erythematosus (LE) can cause various cutaneous lesions including panniculitis (LE profundus), but salivary gland involvement has been extremely rare in patients with LE. Herein, we report the first documented case of systemic LE with prominent mucoid degeneration and lymphoplasmacytic infiltration in the parotid gland. A 38-year-old Japanese male with histories of autoimmune hemolytic anemia and systemic LE presented with a swelling of the bilateral cervical region. A physical examination revealed a swelling of the bilateral parotid gland and erythema of the right cheek...

Post-mortem examinations of the circle of Willis in two cases of subarachnoid hemorrhage disclosed a wide spectrum of vasculopathy ranging from a minimal tear between the intima and media, and between the media and adventitia, to complete transmural disruption leading to the formation of pseudoaneurysms. The presence of coexistence of the focal lesions with complete replacement of the entire arterial wall with thick fibrous connective tissues and the vasculopathy was suggestive of the spontaneous repair of recurrent non-traumatic dissection of intracranial arteries...

In a population sample in whom violent accident was the cause of death, the following prevalence of coronary intimal necrosis, occurring as an independent lesion and as an early step of atherosclerotic involvement, was revealed: 2% of children 6--10 years old, 6% of children and juveniles 11--15 years old, 14% of adolescents 16--20 years old, 32% of young adults 21--25 years old, 56% of young adults 26--30 years old, 72% of mature adults 31--35 years old and 84% of mature adults 36--40 years old. In each age subgroup, the percentage of subjects with coronary intimal necrosis was greater than the percentage of subjects with coronary atherosclerotic plaques...

Current studies indicate that a thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) identifies patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who are at high risk of progressing to end-stage renal disease. We have observed two patients with SLE and one patient with a primary antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) who developed acute renal insufficiency with thrombocytopenia. Renal biopsies showed a TMA characterized by thrombi or by cellular and mucoid intimal hyperplasia of small arteries and arterioles. No arterial or arteriolar immune-complex deposits were detected by immunofluorescent or electron microscopy...

Our objective was to define the renal involvement in primary antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). We studied 20 patients with primary APS. Fourteen were women, mean age 34.4 years. None met ARA criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus. All patients underwent complete renal function studies. The presence of hypertension was also investigated. Renal disease was found in 5 patients, and was characterized by proteinuria, hypertension and renal failure. Kidney biopsy was performed in these 5 patients, showing thromboses of the microvasculature, mesangiolysis, mesangial interposition, electron lucent subendothelial material and ischemic obsolescence of glomeruli...
