Hyperlipidemias and rheumatic manifestations.

Fishel B, Rosenbach TO, Yaron M, Rubinstein A.

There is an increased incidence of arthritides and tendinitis in patients with hyperlipidemias, especially types II and IV. The mechanism responsible for these manifestations is at present not known. It is important to recognize this association and to test plasma lipid levels in any case of arthritis which does not fit into one of the well-established diagnostic entities.

Rheumatic manifestations of hyperlipidaemia.

Handel ML, Simons L.

Familial hypercholesterolaemia is characterized by elevated serum cholesterol, tendon xanthomas, xanthelasmas, arcus corneae and premature atherosclerosis. Rheumatological manifestations include acute episodes of polyarthritis and tendinitis. Patients who are homozygous for familial hypercholesterolaemia have cardiovascular and rheumatological manifestations more frequently and at an earlier age than patients who are heterozygous.

[Hyperlipemias and their manifestations in the rheumatological sphere]
Rondier J, Cayla J, Roux H, Turpin G.

It is fairly frequent to encounter hyperlipemia on a rheumatic unit. Firstly the symptoms of certain idiopathic hyperlipemias sometimes include rheumatic changes. The latter include firstly, arthritis and tendinitis, above all observed in Type II hyperlipoproteinemia but also mentionned in Type IV, and secondly, exceptional bony lesions (generally of xanthoma type) which seem to occur exclusively in severe hyperglyceridemia. A few bone and joint diseases, such as gout or aseptic necrosis, frequently coexist with dyslipemia. Furthermore, various diseases may be simultaneously responsible for secondary hyperlipemia and involvement of the locomotor apparatus. Finally, the iatrogenic manifestations of the locomotor system appear mainly due to hypolipemic drugs, e.g. the muscle disorders seen in a few patients treated with clofibrate.

Lipid disorders and rheumatic diseases.

Leong KH.

Lipid abnormalities can exist in patients with rheumatic diseases. Many mechanisms give rise to these abnormalities and include treatment with corticosteroids and upregulation of certain cytokines in active rheumatic disease. Premature atherosclerosis can occur in these patients with significant morbidity and mortality. Greater awareness and earlier treatment of these lipid problems may lead to better outcomes.

Hypercholesterolemic (type II hyperlipoproteinemic) arthritis.

Department of Internal Medicine B, Faculty of Medicine, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Lady Davis Carmel Hospital, Haifa.

The rheumatic manifestations of familial hypercholesterolemia include recurrent Achilles pain or tendinitis, acute mono/oligoarthritis and migratory (rheumatic fever-like) polyarthritis. Diagnosis is made by finding skin and tendon xanthomas, hypercholesterolemia, and ruling out other rheumatic conditions such as rheumatic fever, gout, pseudogout and septic arthritis. A patient, homozygous for familial hypercholesterolemia, with a rheumatic fever-like migratory arthritis is presented.
