    Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents have been used to treat anemia, one of the extra-articular manifestations of RA.[] This anemia is also known as 'anemia of chronic disease' ( Agarwal 2009 ; Cartwright 1966 ; Means 1995 ; Theurl 2009 ; Masson 2011 ).[] During a recent 8-month period, the patient experienced swelling in multiple joints, dizziness, and severe anemia.[]

  • Blue Sclera

    Abstract Patients with keratoglobus and blue sclera as part of a generalized connective tissue disorder are at a high risk of developing corneal perforations either spontaneously[] Figure 1 Blue-tinged sclera secondary to severe iron deficiency anemia. Figure 1 Blue-tinged sclera secondary to severe iron deficiency anemia.[] Abstract Five patients from two families had similar features including keratoglobus, blue scleras, hyperextensibility of the hand, wrist, and ankle joints, sensorineural[]

  • Osteoporosis

    To further characterize the significance of the mutation we studied his mother who is 30 year old with blue sclera and history of backache but no fractures.[] However, a peripheral blood smear showed normochromic anemia with thrombocytopenia.[] Individuals with OI present with varying degrees of fracture, blue sclerae, dentinogenesis imperfecta, ligament laxity, and hearing impairment. [10] Bone biopsy shows decreased[]

  • Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

    This paper is concerned with the unusual combination of two of these disorders, pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) and sickle cell anemia.[] We describe three cases of the acquired PXE-like syndrome that often occurs in association with hemolytic anemias, in particular the hemoglobinopathies, and review the literature[] Sickle cell anemia, the more familiar of the two diseases, has been better understood since the discovery by Pauling and his associates. 1 Their studies indicate[]

  • Hypophosphatasia

    Other clinical findings included polyhydramnios, blue sclerae and spurs in the mid-portion of the forearms and lower legs.[] Relatively few conditions are associated with a low serum alkaline phosphatase including Wilson's disease, hypophosphatasia, pernicious anemia and untreated hypothyroidism[] They include the appearance of blue sclera (whites of the eyes) during infancy and childhood, deformities in the arms, legs and chest, frequent occurrences of pneumonia which[]

  • Brittle Cornea Syndrome 2

  • Anemia due to Glutathione Metabolism Disorder

    Multiple fractures after birth, blue sclerae , thin skin, progressive deafness in some types (due to abnormal middle ear ossicles).[] NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Anemia Anemia - B12 deficiency Anemia caused by low iron -- infants and toddlers Anemia of chronic disease Anemia of Inflammation[] anemia D53.1 Other megaloblastic anemias, not elsewhere classified D53.2 Scorbutic anemia D53.8 Other specified nutritional anemias D53.9 Nutritional anemia, unspecified[]

  • Shwachman Syndrome

    On further genetic consultation it was revealed that the child had unusual slate-blue sclera; she was short and had a foot deformity.[] These patients, however, exhibited many features similar to other constitutional hematologic disease, such as Fanconi's anemia, which are atypical for Shwachman syndrome.[] […] syndrome, Blackfan-Diamond anemia, celiac disease, and autosomal recessive severe congenital neutropenia due to G6PC3 deficiency (see these terms).[]

  • Loeys Dietz Syndrome Type 1

    Disease spectrum and associated features include: Craniofacial hypertelorism cleft palate bifid uvula craniosynostosis malar hypoplasia blue sclerae Chiari I malformation[] […] dominant Robinow syndrome 1 autosomal dominant Robinow syndrome 2 autosomal dominant Robinow syndrome 3 autosomal dominant sensory ataxia 1 autosomal dominant sideroblastic anemia[] sclerae Whites of eyes are a bluish-gray color 0000592 Camptodactyly of finger Permanent flexion of the finger 0100490 Craniosynostosis 0001363 Hypertelorism Wide-set eyes[]
