Objectives Ultrasound of temporal and axillary arteries may reveal vessel wall inflammation in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA). We developed a ultrasound scoring system to quantify the extent of vascular inflammation and investigated its diagnostic accuracy and association with clinical factors in GCA. Methods This is a prospective study including 89 patients suspected of having GCA, of whom 58 had a confirmed clinical diagnosis of GCA after 6 months follow-up. All patients underwent bi...

OBJECTIVES: To develop a quantitative score based on colour duplex sonography (CDS) to predict the diagnosis and outcome of GCA. METHODS: We selected patients with positive CDS and confirmed diagnosis of GCA recruited into the TA Biopsy (TAB) vs Ultrasound in Diagnosis of GCA (TABUL) study and in a validation, independent cohort. We fitted four CDS models including combinations of the following: number and distribution of halos at the TA branches, average and maximum intima-media thickness of TA...

We thank Dr Coiffier and colleagues for their interesting letter in which they suggest that damages of major salivary glands (SG) might be associated with cryoglobulinemic vasculitis and lymphoma in primary Sjogren’s syndrome. The authors raise the question whether the ultrasonographic (US) features of the salivary glands [our proposed novel ultrasound scoring system] could be used as the new prognostic markers for cryoglobulinemic vasculitis and lymphoma in patients with Sjogren’s syndrome.1 In...

Objective To collect available evidence on management of large vessel vasculitis to inform the 2018 update of the EULAR management recommendations. Methods Two independent systematic literature reviews were performed, one on diagnosis and monitoring and the other on drugs and surgical treatments. Using a predefined PICO (population, intervention, comparator and outcome) strategy, Medline, Embase and Cochrane databases were accessed. Eligible papers were reviewed and results condensed into a summ...

Objectives To analyse the current evidence for the management of large vessel vasculitis (LVV) to inform the 2018 update of the EULAR recommendations. Methods Two systematic literature reviews (SLRs) dealing with diagnosis/monitoring and treatment strategies for LVV, respectively, were performed. Medline, Embase and Cochrane databases were searched from inception to 31 December 2017. Evidence on imaging was excluded as recently published in dedicated EULAR recommendations. This paper focuses on ...

Objective To develop ultrasound (US) definitions and a US novel scoring system for major salivary gland (SG) lesions in patients with primary Sjogren’s syndrome (pSS) and to test their intrareader and inter-reader reliability using US video clips. Methods Twenty-five rheumatologists were subjected to a three-round, web-based Delphi process in order to agree on (1) definitions and scanning procedure of salivary gland ultrasonography (SGUS): parotid, submandibular and sublingual glands (PG, SMG an...
