IgG4-related hypophysitis (IgG4-RH) is increasingly being reported as an isolated entity or, less frequently, as a manifestation of a multiorgan IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD), in which typical histopathology is a cornerstone for the diagnosis. We aimed to describe the histopathological changes in the surgical specimens from patients with clinical signs of pituitary disease that fulfilled the current diagnostic criteria for IgG4-RH. Histopathological features were correlated with clinical and ra...

Objective: In the 2016 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria for primary Sjogren’s syndrome (pSS), pre-existing lymphoma is not an exclusion criterion for pSS diagnosis, as in earlier criteria. We aimed to explore whether there are differences between pSS patients with and without pre-existing lymphoma at pSS diagnosis. Method: Patients with ICD-7–10 codes for Sjogren’s syndrome (SS) and a diagnosis of malignant lymphoma before or after SS di...

Background In the widely used American-European Consensus Group (AECG) classification criteria for primary Sjogren9s syndrome (pSS), pre-existing lymphoma is one of the exclusion criteria for pSS diagnosis (1). This is in contrast to the American College of Rheumatology (ACR)/Sjogren9s International Collaborative Clinical Alliance (SICCA) 2012 classification criteria (2). The rationale and consequences of excluding or not excluding pSS in patients with pre-existing lymphoma have not specifically...
