1/3. Soft tissue involvement, mediastinal pseudotumor, and venous thrombosis in pustulotic arthro-osteitis. A study of eight new cases.

    A syndrome of hyperostosis of the thoracic wall, nonspecific signs of inflammatory disease, and palmar and plantar pustulosis is described in eight patients (Table 1). Seven had intersternocostoclavicular ossification, and one had chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis. This complex of findings has been called "pustulotic arthro-osteitis". This report emphasizes the periosseous soft tissue inflammation and the unexplained subclavian and mediastinal vein thrombosis seen in two patients. Inflammatory periosseous and mediastinal lesions were seen on plain films in all eight patients and on computed tomographic (CT) scans in seven. Radiographs of the spine showed a spondyloarthropathy in three patients. This was characterized by ossification of the vertebral ligaments and sclerosis of the vertebral bodies. awareness of the radiologic features of pustulotic arthro-osteitis is important because the clinical, biochemical and pathologic findings are often nonspecific and misleading.

2/3. Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis: rheumatologic, radiologic, and dermatologic characteristics.

    Two recently observed patients with sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis exemplify the characteristic presentation of this rheumatologic disorder. We describe its manifestations, review the literature on this subject, and discuss clinical and radiologic aspects, including the frequently associated dermatologic disorder palmoplantar pustulosis. Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis is an increasingly common diagnosis, and practicing physicians should be aware of the distinctive features that allow accurate differentiation from psoriatic arthritis and other diseases.

3/3. Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis. A report of nineteen cases, with special reference to etiology and treatment.

    The cases of nineteen patients with sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis were reviewed retrospectively. Of particular interest were the responses to antibiotics and prostaglandin inhibitors. The prostaglandin inhibitors relieved the pain within three to four weeks in sixteen of eighteen patients so treated. However, the inhibitors gradually became less effective in most patients. Oral antibiotics were more effective than the inhibitors in relieving the pain of eight of the eleven patients who were given antibiotics. Pustulosis palmaris and plantaris, commonly associated with sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis, diminished after antibiotic therapy, as did the chest pain in most patients. The similarities between the age and sex distributions and the responses to antibiotics of the patients with sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis and those with pustulosis suggest that these disorders have a common etiology, and that the pustulosis may be a so-called bacterid reaction and the hyperostosis, a manifestation of a systemic reaction to a focal infection.
