INTRODUCTION Awareness of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is increasing worldwide and specialists are now familiar with most of its clinical manifestations and mimickers. IgG4-RD promptly responds to glucocorticoids and repeated courses are typically used to induce and maintain remission because the disease relapses in most patients. If left untreated it can lead to organ dysfunction, organ failure and death. Advancement in our understanding of IgG4-RD pathogenesis is leading to the identificatio...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess disease activity by different PET/CT measurements in IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) flares and their correlation with the IgG4-RD responder index (IgG4-RI). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients were retrospectively recruited from a single center in Barcelona, Spain. They all had IgG4-RD flares with an 18F-FDG PET/CT examination performed within the 2 first weeks of the flare onset and another one after at least 3 months of treatment between 2012 and 2018. E...

OBJECTIVES Several IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) phenotypes have been proposed and the first set of classification criteria have been recently created. Our objectives were to assess the phenotype distribution and the performance of the classification criteria in Spanish patients as genetic and geographical differences may exist. METHODS We performed a cross-sectional multicentre study (Registro Espanol de Enfermedad Relacionada con la IgG4, REERIGG4) with nine participating centres from Spain. ...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an autoimmune fibrosing condition which is being increasingly recognized. This condition has been classically managed with glucocorticoids (GC) with variable dosing and frequent relapses. Multiple observational reports studied different GC doses and steroid-sparing agents. Rituximab (RTX) was reported as an effective induction treatment, with less relapses after 1 year of treatment. In the absence of guidelines, an international management consensus was made in ...

A 56-year-old woman with a previous history for a dermatomyositis/scleroderma overlap with positive PM-Scl 75/100 kDa was admitted due to a severe myopathy flare. Her disease had been characterized by Raynaud's phenomenon, extensive calcinosis cutis, mild interstitial lung disease, creatine kinase elevation and proximal muscle weakness.
