12 Possible Causes for Synovial Biopsy showing Granulomatous Arthritis

  • Sarcoidosis

    Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease, with genitourinary tract involvement being very rare (0.2% of all sarcoidosis cases). Genitourinary sarcoidosis may present with a scrotal mass with or without testicular pain, often mimicking epididymo-orchitis or malignancy. Only 8 cases of genitourinary sarcoidosis[…][]

  • Synovial Sarcoma

    We present a first case of synovial sarcoma in an HIV-positive pregnant woman. This 28-year-old woman was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a high-grade malignant soft tissue sarcoma, involving her left thigh during the first trimester of her pregnancy. She underwent surgical treatment in the form of hip[…][]

  • Mycosis

    Mycoses, or fungal infections, are responsible for a broad range of diseases in humans. The following are selected presentations of various mycoses. Candidiasis In the female genital tract, this fungus causes vaginal itching and swelling. The findings may be notable for the presence of a thick cottage cheese[…][]

  • Atypical Mycobacteria

    Three case reports of mastoiditis caused by atypical mycobacteria are discussed and a review of the world literature is given. Our aim is to focus the attention of the ENT specialist and the pediatrician on these pathological agents in unilateral recurrent otitis media. The case reports illustrate the importance of[…][]

  • Mycobacterial Infection

    The need for isolation of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) from clinical specimens has increased in recent years. Our aim was to determine the clinical usefulness of PCR for differential diagnosis of tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacterial infection in lung tissue that show chronic granulomatous inflammation.[…][]

  • Sporotrichosis

    Sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by Sporothrix schenckii with endemic regions in the American continent. Clinical features depend on the immunological patient state and some characteristics of the fungus. Disseminated cutaneous sporotrichosis is a rare variant usually described in immunocompromised[…][]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    biopsy – to esclude other diagnoses (e.g. granulomatous arthritis) Echocardiogram – for possible systemic onset JRA with fever, to exclude pericarditis (pericardiocentesis[] […] increased inflammation of synovium Computed tomography – to exclude osteoid osteoma as cause of bone pain Other testing Arthrocentesis – to exclude septic arthritis Synovial[] Radiographic evaluation Plain film – for single joints to exclude other causes such as osteomyelitis or septic arthritis Magnetic resonance imaging – with gadolinium injection can show[]

  • Mycobacterium Kansasii

    Taxonomy ID: 1768 (for references in articles please use NCBI:txid1768) current name Mycobacterium kansasii Hauduroy 1955 type strain of Mycobacterium kansasii : ATCC:12478, CIP:104589, DSM:44162, JCM:6379, NCTC:13024 NCBI BLAST name: high GC Gram Rank: species Genetic code: Translation table 11 (Bacterial, Archaeal[…][]

  • Blau Syndrome

    Blau syndrome is characterized by the triad of granulomatous arthritis, uveitis, and dermatitis. First described in 1985, it was considered to be distinct from sarcoidosis due to the early age of onset and autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. Published reports of sporadic cases of children with 'early-onset[…][]
