1/26. Stress-induced SAPHO syndrome.

    We describe the case of a woman with the classic combination of features of synovitis-acne-pustulosis-hyperostosis-osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome, including pustulosis palmo-plantaris and anterior chest wall involvement. The varying symptomology, etiology and pathogenesis of this syndrome and the contribution of stress are discussed. The authors ascribe the dearth of reported cases to lack of awareness and recognition of SAPHO, and not to the real incidence of the syndrome.

2/26. Palmoplantar pustulosis with pustulotic arthroosteitis involving temporal osteomyelitis and meningitis.

    A 46-year-old man who had been suffering from palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) for 3 years had anterior chest pain and left temporal pain from six months after the onset of his disease. A bone scan revealed abnormal uptake at the sternoclavicular joint and left temporal region. The head CT and MRI gave the diagnosis of temporal osteomyelitis with meningitis and myositis. His headache continued even after tonsillectomy and was effectively treated with cyclosporine A (3 mg/kg/day). Oral cyclosporine A was beneficial for the osteomyelitis and skin lesions. Sterile lytic bone lesions occurring most often at the sternocostoclavicular joint have been associated with PPP. However, there have been no reports of a PPP patient with temporal osteomyelytic involvement.

3/26. Spinal hyperostosis--a rare skeletal manifestation of psoriasis vulgaris.

    A 28-year-old woman with uncomplicated psoriasis vulgaris presented with spinal hyperostosis and osteitis. The absence of peripheral arthritis, sacroiliitis, and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) raised the possibility that the spinal lesion was an extracutaneous manifestation of psoriasis. We review the association between uncomplicated psoriasis vulgaris and skeletal involvement.

4/26. Noninfectious osteitis: part of the SAPHO syndrome.

    SAPHO, a rare syndrome, is a recently suggested acronym for synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis. It encompasses many features which have been described in different but overlapping conditions. Not all of the syndrome components need to be present for inclusion in SAPHO to be justified, especially the dermatologic components. Two cases are described as examples. Clinicians should be aware of this rare disorder if positive early diagnoses are to be made in patients presenting with skeletal pain.

5/26. Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis. Presentation and long-term follow-up of three cases.

    Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis is a rare disease characterized by recurrent pain and skeletal swelling in the upper part of the chest. The clinical manifestations are closely linked to pustulosis palmo-plantaris but the etiology is still obscure. We present three cases of sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis with a follow-up period of 9-22 years at our department.

6/26. Palmoplantar pustulotic arthro-osteitis of the peripheral joints with no sternocostoclavicular lesions.

    A 45 year old woman presented with swelling and pain on joint movement of her knees, although joint movement was relatively well maintained. Five years previously the patient had been diagnosed as having pustulosis palmoplantaris by a dermatologist. Treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) had no effect, but treatment with 5 mg/day prednisolone caused remission of both the joint pain and swelling and the pustulosis palmoplantaris. There were no sternocostoclavicular lesions at any time during treatment. Clinical findings in this patient were different from previous reports and she was diagnosed as having palmoplantar pustulotic arthro-osteitis affecting the peripheral joints.

7/26. In SAPHO syndrome anti-TNF-alpha therapy may induce persistent amelioration of osteoarticular complaints, but may exacerbate cutaneous manifestations.

    OBJECTIVES: SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis) is a rare disease combining skin, bone and joint manifestations. In recent years new therapeutic strategies have been tried, among them TNF-alpha-blocking agents. We report our experience with infliximab in four cases of SAPHO syndrome refractory to conventional therapies. methods: Between 2002 and 2005, four cases of SAPHO syndrome (two females and two males; mean age 49.7 yr) responding poorly to conventional drugs were treated with infliximab. The dose was 5 mg/kg, according to the protocol used in spondyloarthropathies, with infusions at 0, 2 and 6 weeks followed by 6 weeks intervals. No active cutaneous manifestations were present at the time of starting therapy. RESULTS: Complete remission of osteoarticular involvement was achieved after the second or third infusion, and the positive response was maintained for up to 12 months. A patient relapsed after discontinuation of infliximab, because of infectious complication. Palmoplantaris pustulosis relapsed in two patients after three and six infusions, respectively; there was slight improvement after discontinuation of anti-TNF-alpha drugs. CONCLUSIONS: Infliximab seems to be a very effective therapy for osteoarticular complaints of SAPHO syndrome. Cutaneous involvement responded less favourably, palmoplantaris pustulosis relapse being a possible complication.

8/26. Pustular osteoarthropathy and its differential diagnosis.

    A combination of costo-sterno-clavicular hyperostosis and palmo-plantar pustulosis, sometimes with hyperostotic spondylosis and spondylarthritis, is called pustular osteoarthropathy. In the Western hemisphere 40 cases have been reported and in the far east the condition occurs more commonly. Five cases are described. diagnosis is difficult because the skin lesions can occur before the costo-sterno-clavicular hyperostoses. The clinical condition is discussed together with the differential diagnosis. Pustular osteoarthropathy seems to be an enthesopathy and the palmoplantar pustulosis is interpreted as a form of psoriasis.

9/26. Sternoclavicular pustulotic osteitis (SAPHO). 20-year interval between skin and bone lesions.

    In 2 cases of palmoplantar pustulosis, a 20-year interval was observed between the skin lesion and the bone involvement. In one case, the bone lesion came first. In the other a skin lesion was seen for 3 weeks without subsequent relapse. The 2 cases underline the multifaceted presentation of the condition for which we have coined the name synovitis acne pustulosis hyperostosis osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome.

10/26. hyperostosis and multifocal osteitis: a purely rheumatological subset of the SAPHO syndrome.

    SAPHO has recently been proposed as an acronym to identify a syndrome characterized by synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteomyelitis. Several authors have, however, found that this rare condition may even occur without cutaneous manifestations. The work reported here presents the case of a 43-year-old male with skeletal involvement alone. An in-depth study of the patient revealed the arthro-osteitic pattern typical of the SAPHO syndrome. In agreement with previous reports, these data confirm that the present clinical picture of hyperostosis and osteitis, even without cutaneous involvement, is nonetheless related to the SAPHO syndrome.
