Inflammatory Arthritis following Hepatitis B Vaccination in an Infant
Childhood inflammatory arthritis can have several causes. Among those causes include chronic conditions such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), which presents with inflammation lasting for at least 6 weeks prior to a child’s 16 birthday. Acute inflammatory arthritis due to infections, medications, and vaccinations is also noted in the literature. For example, arthritis is well described... Lire la suite

Closed Compression Nailing Using a New-Generation Intramedullary Nail without Autologous Bone Grafting for Humeral Shaft Nonunion
Humeral shaft fractures are common and account for 3–5% of all fractures [1, 2]. Generally, fractures can be treated conservatively or surgically, unless open fractures, polytrauma, or progressive radial nerve deficits are involved [3–5]. Nonunion following humeral shaft fractures has been reported to occur in 0.3–13% of cases after conservative or surgical treatment [6, 7]. Nonunion... Lire la suite

Relationship between spinal structural damage on radiography and bone fragility on CT in ankylosing spondylitis patients
Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disorder with axial (spinal and sacroiliac) and peripheral involvement (arthritis, enthesitis, dactylitis) and sometimes some extra-articular events (iritis, inflammatory bowel disease, dactylitis). In the same patient, bone resorption (erosion, osteoporosis) progressed to bone formation (syndesmophyte, ossification of ligament, ankylosis)... Lire la suite

The long pentraxin PTX3: a novel serum marker to improve the prediction of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis bone-related phenotypes
The long pentraxin PTX3 is a member of pentraxins superfamily, a class of humoral pattern recognition molecules, which play a fundamental role in innate and adaptive immune response [1, 2]. The human gene encoding PTX3 (PTX3, MIM#602492) is localized on chromosome 3q25 and is organized in three exons and two introns . The mature protein is a complex octameric molecule characterized...
