Abstract
Purpose of reviewThe causes of exudative pleural effusions are diverse and frequently remain unclear despite exhaustive examinations. Recently recognized IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fibroinflammatory disorder that can affect nearly any organ including the lungs. This review will focus on the

OBJECTIVE: Immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease is a recently described systemic immune-mediated fibro-inflammatory disease that frequently occurs in tumorous form. Herein, we elucidated the clinicopathological and cytological characteristics of IgG4-related pleural lesions (PLs). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Among 22 patients with fibro-inflammatory PLs of idiopathic aetiology, eight cases were diagnosed as IgG4-PL and the remaining 14 as non-IgG4-PL according to comprehensive diagnostic criteria for...

Background The antigenic trigger that drives expansion of circulating plasmablasts and CD4+ cytotoxic T cells in patients with IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is presently unknown. Objective We sought to sequence immunoglobulin genes from single-cell clones of dominantly expanded plasmablasts and generate recombinant human mAbs to identify relevant antigens in patients with IgG4-RD by using mass spectrometry. Methods Paired heavy and light chain cDNAs from dominant plasmablast clones were express...

Abstract A 65-year-old man was admitted for productive cough and dyspnea. Bilateral pleural effusions were observed on chest X-ray. Although the bilateral pleural effusions were exudative with an increased number of lymphocytes, bacterial culture and polymerase chain reaction analysis for Mycobacterium tuberculosis were negative. Immunological examinations showed high levels of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) in both serum and pleural effusion fluid. Pathologic evaluation of a left pleural biopsy speci...

: Non-specific pleuritis (NSP) is defined as fibrinous or inflammatory pleuritis which cannot be attributed to a specific benign or malignant etiology. It can be diagnosed in biopsies in up to 30% of cases of exudative pleuritis after thoracoscopy, with a mean of 19.2%. In 66 out of 469 (14.2%) patients in combined series, a malignant pleural disease (mostly mesothelioma) was found during a follow-up of at least 21 months. Most likely, a follow-up time of 12 months is sufficient, although the cu...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), a major manifestation of immunoglobulin G4–related disease (IgG4-RD), is an immune-mediated disorder, but the target autoantigens are still unknown. We previously reported that IgG in patients with AIP induces pancreatic injuries in mice by binding the extracellular matrix (ECM). In the current study, we identified an autoantibody against laminin 511-E8, a truncated laminin 511, one of the ECM proteins, in patients with AIP. Anti–laminin 511-E8 IgG was present in 2...

: An 81-year-old man was admitted with bilateral pleural effusion. A clinical examination showed lymphocytic pleura effusion and elevated serum IgG4 levels, so that IgG4-related disease was suggested, whereas tuberculous pleurisy was suspected because of high adenosine deaminase (ADA) levels in the pleural effusion. A surgical pleural biopsy revealed that there were large numbers of IgG4-positive cells and IgG4/IgG positive cell ratio exceeded 40% in several sites. Accordingly, we diagnosed IgG4...

Lymphomas that occur in the setting of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) are uncommon. Most reported cases derive from Asia and are MALT lymphomas occurring in orbital IgG4-RD. The spectrum of lymphomas among IgG4-RD patients in the Western world remains poorly defined. The aim of this study was to report our experience with lymphomas occurring in IgG4-RD. Eight cases were identified from the pathology and consultation files. The median age was 61 years (range 22–68) at IgG4-RD diagnosis and 63.5 y...

: IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a recently recognized disease entity characterized by high serum IgG4 concentrations and infiltration of IgG4+ plasma cells with hyperplastic ectopic germinal centres at affected sites. Although the underlying immune mechanism of this disease remains unclear, T cells are abundantly present at affected sites and key players in IgG4-RD pathogenesis. The role of T cell subsets has been investigated thoroughly in this disease. Recent advances in this field have cl...

Abstract IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a multi-system fibro-inflammatory disorder with classical histopathological findings, often in the context of elevated serum IgG4 levels. The thoracic manifestations of IgG4-RD are numerous and can mimic several common and better known conditions. The objective of this study was to outline the frequency and nature of thoracic involvement in a prospective cohort of IgG4-RD patients who met defined diagnostic criteria. Over 40% of IgG4-RD patients had cli...

Objectives To assess efficacy and safety of rituximab (RTX) as induction therapy, maintenance of remission and treatment of relapses in a cohort of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) patients. Methods Nationwide retrospective multicenter study of IgG4-RD patients treated with at least one course of RTX. Clinical, biological and radiological response, relapse rate and drug tolerance were analyzed. Kaplan-Meier curves were plotted and risk factors for relapse studied with a Cox regression model. Resul...

RATIONALE Levels of pleural fluid adenosine deaminase (ADA), a useful marker for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy, are elevated in some reports of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related pleural effusion. We describe a patient with IgG4-related pleural effusion who exhibited a high concentration of ADA. Furthermore, we reviewed the literature to compare patients with IgG4-related pleural effusion and tuberculous pleurisy. PATIENT CONCERNS A 75-year-old male patient had dyspnea for 1 month with a l...

Immunoglobulin G4-related lung disease (IgG4-RLD) is the pulmonary manifestation of a systemic fibroinflammatory disease characterized by lymphoplasmacytic infiltration with an abundance of IgG4-positive plasma cells. Long-term clinical course and outcomes of IgG4-RLD remain unclear. We aimed to identify clinical characteristics, treatment outcomes, and longitudinal pulmonary function changes in patients with IgG4-RLD according to the radiologic classification. Chest computed tomography findings...

Abstract Introduction Sclerosing peritonitis is a fibro-inflammatory condition of the peritoneum which is rarely associated with ovarian neoplasia e.g., thecoma. The etiology is largely unknown. Objective To investigate whether sclerosing peritonitis associated with gynecological neoplasia is a reactive process and part of the spectrum of IgG4-related disease, or a neoplastic process and harboring molecular alterations known to occur in low-grade spindle cell neoplasms. Methods Six cases of scle...
