Book Description :

The prevalence of autoimmune diseases and rheumatic conditions is constantly increasing. Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 7-10% of the population of the United States, while more than 50,000,000 American adults suffer from some type of arthritis. The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases examines the complex mechanisms relating to cardiac diseases from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. Autoimmune rheumatic diseases can affect the coronary vessels, myocardium, pericardium, heart valves and the conduction system. The diagnosis of these unique cardiac complications necessitates medical awareness and a high index of suspicion. Increased risk of advanced atherosclerosis plays a pivotal role in the development of cardiac diseases in systemic, rheumatic and autoimmune illnesses. Yet, other complex immune medicated mechanisms may contribute to the pathogenesis. Patients' optimal care requires coordination between the primary caregiver, the rheumatologist, immunologist and cardiologist. Screening for cardiovascular risk factors, recognition of high-risk patients and identification of subclinical cardiac conditions are of great importance. Moreover, regulation of inflammation, as well as abnormal immune responses and the initiation of early treatments should be the focus of patient management. A continuous attempt to identify novel therapeutic targets and change the natural history of the underlying disease and its cardiac manifestations is in progress. The book aims at providing the readers with a state of the art collection of up to date information regarding clinically important topics based on experts' perspectives. This book was a result of an extended coordinated collaboration of one-hundred and fifty-four distinguished scientists from thirty-one countries around the globe. A review of common, as well as unusual (yet clinically significant) medical cardiac complications of prevalent rheumatic, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Focuses on aspects of pathophysiological processes, clinical presentations, screening tests, prognostic implications and novel therapeutic approaches. Presents an up-to-date “level of evidence and “strengths of recommendations for suggested therapies and reviews all randomized clinical trials, meta-analyses and other supporting published clinical findings.

Book Description :

Important strides have been made in understanding the pathophysiologic basis of many inflammatory conditions in recent years, but rheumatology remains a discipline in which diagnosis is rooted in the medical history skillfully extracted from the patient, the careful physical examination, and the discriminating use of laboratory tests and imaging. Moreover, selection of the most appropriate therapy for patients with rheumatic diseases also remains heavily reliant upon clinical experience. Medical disciplines such as rheumatology that depend significantly upon clinical wisdom are prone to the development of systems of ‘Pearls’ and ‘Myths,’ related to the diseases they call their own, a ‘Pearl’ being a nugget of truth about the diagnosis or treatment of a particular disease that has been gained by dint of clinical experience and a ‘Myth’ being a commonly held belief that influences the practice of many clinicians – but is false. This book will pool together the clinical wisdom of seasoned, expert rheumatologists who participate in the care of patients with autoimmune diseases, systemic inflammatory disorders, and all other rheumatic conditions.

In this book, the environmental factors are reviewed, including infectious agents, vaccines as triggers of autoimmunity, smoking and its relationship with rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel diseases. An entirely new syndrome, the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), is also included, along with other diseases that are now recognized as having an autoimmune etiopathogenesis.

Book Description :

Treatments for psoriasis, besides affecting the skin, may be associated with various comorbidities (for instance, depression, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn's disease and, in severe psoriasis, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases), which often presents a therapeutic challenge to physicians.Written by renowned experts, this volume gives a comprehensive overview of psoriasis and its various comorbidities. It describes the treatment modalities for mild and moderate-to-severe psoriasis, including topical, phototherapeutic and conventional systemic treatments (e.g. acitretine, methotrexate and cyclosporine), as well as biological therapies (e.g. alefacept, efalizumab, etanercept, adalimumab and infliximab). The chapters on biological therapies focus on key safety issues. Further chapters focus on such topics as the management of childhood psoriasis and psoriasis in distinctive locations, such as the scalp, face, flexures, palm/soles and nails. Finally, future therapeutic modalities, with the focus on small molecules and potential biological therapies, are discussed.This publication will make significant reading to dermatologists and all physicians dealing with psoriasis, such as general practitioners, psychiatrists, rheumatologists, cardiologists and diabetologists.

Book Description :

Reactive arthritis is a self limiting condition that is a member of the seronegative spondyloarthropathies, which can follow a recurrent and chronic course. It is also categorized as a oculomucocutaneous disease. Reactive arthritis most commonly affects young men with a triad of symptoms including arthritis, urethritis and conjunctivitis or uveitis. The exact cause of Reactive arthritis is unknown, but it is believed to be the result of an infection. Specifically, the infection is thought to be precipitated by either Gram negative caused by Shigella, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Yersinia, or nongonococcal urethritis caused by Chamydia tracomatis. An association exists between spondyloarthritis, Reactive arthritis, HLA-B27 and anterior uveitis. Eighty four percent of HLA-B27 positive patients with Acute Anterior Uveitis have other B27-associated disease, specifically Reactive arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis or psoriatic arthritis. About 20-30% of patients with Reiter's syndrome develop acute anterior uveitis. The bilateral conjunctivitis seen in that condition has an acute onset and may be is observed before or at the onset of arthritis. No specific treatment currently exists for Reactive arthritis. Most of Reactive arthritis patients show a recovery from their symptoms within a few weeks. Currently, anti inflammatory agents are the drugs of choice for therapy. Corticosteroids, Anti-TNF agents and physical therapy are also recommended.
