1. Thirty-eight patients with active rheumatoid arthritis or related diseases exhibited exaggerated responses manifested by pain, swelling, erythema, and cyanosis to extravascular administration of serotonin. 2. The reaction to histamine was characterized by itching, swelling, and erythema. 3. The reaction to epinephrine and norepinephrine was characterized by local pallor and venous constriction. Erythema, swelling, and cyanosis did not occur. 4. Acetycholine caused only mild, transient, local erythema. 5. The intravenous administration of a serotonin antagonist during the peak of the serotonin reaction rapidly diminished the intensity or reversed it completely.

    : A 52-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis treated with low-dose steroids developed bilateral distal tibia and fibula fractures over a 15-month period. Her bone density was within osteopenic levels. Such fractures are an unusual but increasingly recognised complication of rheumatoid disease...

    : Interferon (IFN) therapy has been used for the treatment of common diseases such as hepatitis C, myeloproliferative disorders, autoimmune diseases and various types of cancer. Given the biological properties of interferon, it is not surprising that there are a larger number of side effects due...

    Due to the fact that both multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MRH) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are destructive arthritic and skin disorders, it is often difficult to differentiate one from the other. Here, we report the case of a 67-year-old Japanese woman who had been diagnosed as suffering...
