No evidence has shown the efficacy of Sodium Risedronate (Risedronate) for glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (GIO) in patients with Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of this study was to explore...

We thank Rios Rodriguez et al for sharing their interesting case with us. Both of us reported that tofacitinib, a janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, showed a favourable therapeutic effect in each patient with Takayasu arteritis (TAK) complicated by ulcerative colitis1 or psoriatic arthritis.2 These complications are in the same spectrum as spondyloarthritis, in which IL-23/Th17 axis plays an important pathophysiological role and the effectiveness of JAK inhibitors was …

We thank Watanabe for his interest in our case report showing that tofacitinib, a janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, successfully induced a remission of Takayasu arteritis (TAK) complicated by ulcerative colitis (UC)1 and for providing some meaningful comments to supplement our discussion.2 Watanabe wonders if JAK inhibitors can be effective in TAK patients without UC. In addition, he is concerned that types of JAK inhibitors may affect the efficiency in treating TAK. We agree that the …

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate whether gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in shoulders can contribute to more accurate diagnosis and prediction of recurrence in patients with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). METHODS: Gadolinium-enhanced MRI and ultrasonography (US) in shoulders were performed in the patients who had bilateral shoulders pain and fulfilled the Bird's Classification Criteria between June 2012 and June 2018. PMR was clinically diagnosed by at least two rheumatologis...

Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a form of large vessel vasculitis resulting in thickening and stenosis of the large-sized arteries, particularly the aorta and its main branches. Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a major complication of TAK, sharing some genetic background and pathogenesis.1 Serum levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), are potential biomarkers to reflect disease activity of TAK. Thus, IL-6 or TNF-α inhibitors have been us...

: A 48-year-old man was brought to our emergency room with acute abdominal pain and systemic edema, indicating acute circulatory failure with lactic acidosis. Furosemide treatment paradoxically worsened the systemic edema and induced confusion. He had no drinking history but hardly ate legumes or meats containing thiamine. Administration of fursultiamine dramatically improved the symptoms and subsequently caused pulmonary edema. Thiamine deficiency may occur in nondrinkers with an unbalanced die...
