Globulinopathy and hyperuricemia

Zeitschrift für Rheumatologie
J StĕpánZ Vodrázka


Investigation of the locomotor system of 20 patients is reported. One patient with arthrosis of the hip joint and concomitant osteonecroses had a myeloma. In 5 RA patients the manifestations of secondary amyloidosis are described. Among the patients with monoclonal gamma globulinemia two had polyarthritis and RA could not be excluded in one of them, one had arthritis of the ankle and foot joints, and one had a vasculitis characteristic of polyarteritis nodosa. Among those with polyclonal immunoglobulinemia one had RA, two had arthrosis of knees and hips, and two had ankylosing spondylitis. Furthermore four patients with alpha2-hyperglobulinemia which is important in evaluation of the alpha2-globulin peak in amyloidosis, are described. Three patients had cryoglobulinemia. In 10 patients hyperuricemia was found repeatedly (by the uricase method). Consequently in these diseases it is necessary to search clinically for crystal induced synovitides and arthropathies. The classification of globulinopathies and the method of their determination is indicated and particular investigations are recommended for such diseases, where the activity of the joint process does not correlate with laboratory findings.

About this Paper

Trending Feeds


Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
