OBJECTIVE Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA, formerly Churg-Strauss syndrome) is a rare anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis. Environmental agents and occupational exposures may confer susceptibility to EGPA, but data are scarce. We investigated the association between occupational exposures (e.g., silica, farming, asbestos, organic solvents) and other environmental agents (e.g., smoking) and the risk of EGPA. METHODS One-hundred and eleven newly di...

Abstract Background Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a rare systemic vasculitis. Cardiac specific involvement (CSI) is caused by coronary artery vasculitis, but also by myocardial eosinophilic infiltration. To date, the prevalence of CSI associated with EGPA is unresolved. Aim of this study was to systematically assess the prevalence and clinical impact of CSI in a consecutive outpatient EGPA population. Methods Between October 2018 and July 2019, we prospectively enrolled...

PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW We aim to review the most relevant diagnostic features and treatment options of retroperitoneal fibrosis, in order to provide a useful guide for clinical practice. RECENT FINDINGS The recent literature highlights the role of imaging studies such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography as useful tools for the diagnosis of retroperitoneal fibrosis, with retroperitoneal biopsy being reserved to atypical cases. The treatment approach ...

OBJECTIVES Serum anti-dsDNA and anti-nucleosome IgGs have been proposed as signatures for SLE and LN in limited numbers of patients. We sought to show higher sensitivity and specificity of the same antibodies with the IgG2 isotype and included IgG2 antibodies vs specific intracellular antigens in the analysis. METHODS A total of 1052 SLE patients with (n = 479) and without (n = 573) LN, recruited at different times from the beginning of symptoms, were included in the study. Patients with primary...

OBJECTIVES Circulating anti-ENO1 and anti-H2A IgG2 have been identified as specific signatures of LN in a cross-over approach. We sought to show whether the same antibodies identify selected population of patients with LN with potentially different clinical outcomes. METHODS Here we report the prospective analysis over 36 months of circulating IgG2 levels in patients with newly diagnosed LN (n=91) and SLE (n=31) and in other patients with SLE recruited within 2 years from diagnosis (n=99). Anti-...

OBJECTIVES Only a third of patients with eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) are ANCA-positive, mainly directed against MPO. ANCA directed against PR3 are rarely found in EGPA. We aimed to examine the significance of PR3-ANCA in EGPA. METHODS We set up a retrospective European multicentre cohort including 845 patients. Baseline characteristics and outcomes were analysed and compared according to ANCA status. RESULTS ANCA status was available for 734 patients: 508 (69.2%) ANCA-ne...
