OBJECTIVES: ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) can affect all age groups. We aimed to show that differences in disease presentation and 6 month outcome between younger- and older-onset patients are still incompletely understood. METHODS: We included patients enrolled in the Diagnostic and Classification Criteria for Primary Systemic Vasculitis (DCVAS) study between October 2010 and January 2017 with a diagnosis of AAV. We divided the population according to age at diagnosis: 65 years of age displa...

Background The role of Fluoro-Deoxy-Glucose PET for the diagnosis of large vessel vasculitis (LVV) remains uncertain. Temporal artery biopsy (TAB) is the gold standard investigation for suspected Giant Cell Arteritis. Biopsy is invasive, may be negative due to skip lesions and does not provide information about the extent of vascular territories involved. Objectives We aimed to determine the value of PET in the diagnosis of LVV and if any patient or clinical characteristics could help predict po...

MRI scanning in patients with rheumatological conditions often shows bone marrow oedema, which can be secondary to inflammatory, degenerative, infective or malignant conditions but can also be primary. The latter condition is of uncertain aetiology and it is also uncertain whether it represents a stage in the progression to osteonecrosis in some patients. Patients with primary bone marrow oedema usually have lower limb pain, commonly the hip, knee, ankle or feet. The diagnosis is one of exclusio...

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with an increased risk of many diseases (skeletal and nonskeletal). Emerging data also associate high concentrations of serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) with morbidity and increased mortality in patients both with and without known chronic kidney disease (CKD). Understanding the relationship between vitamin D and PTH and the determinants of PTH is therefore important. We performed a cross-sectional study of 203 patients with varying stages of CKD randomly recrui...

There is an increasing interest in the role of vitamin D as a potential treatment for a number of disparate diseases. In addition to its role in calcium homeostasis, vitamin D has a plethora of effects including immunomodulation, pleiotropic effects, modulating propensity to infection and blood pressure regulation. Detection and treatment of vitamin D deficiency in selected patients with RA is relevant as deficiency is common. Vitamin D therapy may modify the increased risk of falls and fracture...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with an increased risk of hip fractures despite patients with this condition having normal to high bone mineral density (BMD). Therefore, nonskeletal risk factors may be important in the etiology of fractures in these patients. The aim of this cross-sectional retrospective study was to determine risk factors for falling and fracture in older women with type 2 DM. We randomly recruited 150 women from a community-based diabetes register. They underwent d...
