We read with great interest the article on cardiovascular, thromboembolic and renal outcomes in patients with immunoglobulin A vasculitis (IgAV), published recently online in A nnals of the R heumatic D iseases .1 Tracy et al , estimated both a childhood and an adult onset of IgAV incidence rates and reported an increased risk of hypertension and chronic kidney disease in patients with IgAV, compared with age-matched and sex-matched controls based on retrospective data over a 12-year period extr...

OBJECTIVES: Vision complications and a stroke represent severe cranial ischaemic complications (sCIC) associated with increased morbidity and mortality in GCA. We aimed to determine the risk factors for sCIC in GCA. METHODS: We analysed the medical records of prospectively enrolled GCA patients diagnosed between September 2011 and August 2019, and compared the clinical and laboratory characteristics of patients with and without sCIC defined as either severe vision complications (diplopia, transi...

Immunoglobulin A vasculitis (IgAV) is still poorly defined in the adult population. We aimed to determine the predictors of gastrointestinal (GI) or renal involvement in adult IgAV. The prospective study included histologically proven adult IgAV cases diagnosed between January 2013 and July 2019 at our secondary/tertiary rheumatology center. We evaluated the role of clinical and the laboratory parameters as markers predicting the GI or renal involvement in IgAV, using the multiple logistic regre...

Glucocorticoid monotherapy has been the mainstay treatment of giant cell arteritis (GCA) for decades. We aimed to evaluate the role of leflunomide as a steroid-sparing agent in GCA. This open-label study included incipient GCA patients followed for at least 48 weeks at a single secondary/tertiary rheumatology centre. At the time of diagnosis, patients received glucocorticoids. At week 12 of follow-up, leflunomide 10 mg qd was recommended as an adjunctive therapy to all patients without contraind...

Idiopathic Inflammatory myopathies (IIM) are rare disorders. The aim of our study was to determine the incidence of IIM in a well-defined Slovenian region. This retrospective study was conducted at the Department of Rheumatology, University Medical Centre Ljubljana, the only secondary/tertiary rheumatology center in a region with a population of 704,342 adults. We identified potential IIM cases by searching the electronic patient records for ICD-10 codes M33, M35.1, M35.8, M60, G72, G73, and J84...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common vasculitis in adults aged ≥ 50 years in Europe. Recently, colour Doppler ultrasonography (CDS) and positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) have improved the diagnostic sensitivity. The aim of our study was to determine the incidence of GCA in a well-defined Slovenian region, supported by the temporal artery (TA) biopsy (TAB) or CDS or PET/CT. This prospective study was conducted at the University Medical Centre Ljubljana, the only s...
