Summary of "Hughes Stovin: Sustained remission and regression of pulmonary aneurysms with anti-tumor necrosis factor treatment."

We report the first case of Hughes Stovin Syndrome successfully treated with long-lasting tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) blocker (infliximab) treatment. Because of the failure of the standard therapeutic regimen with steroids and cyclophosphamide, infliximab was started achieving a stable disease remission and a complete resolution of pulmonary aneurysms. Hughes Stovin Syndrome, although rare, is a life-threatening condition that needs to be timely identified and treated aggressively. Our report underlines the importance of TNF-α blocker treatment in Hughes Stovin Syndrome, suggesting its use as long-term safe and useful.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapeutic act or process that initiates a response to a complete or partial remission level.

A localized bulging or dilatation in the muscle wall of a heart (MYOCARDIUM), usually in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Blood-filled aneurysms are dangerous because they may burst. Fibrous aneurysms interfere with the heart function through the loss of contractility. True aneurysm is bound by the vessel wall or cardiac wall. False aneurysms are HEMATOMA caused by myocardial rupture.

Aneurysm of the MICROVASCULATURE. Charcot–Bouchard aneurysms are aneurysms of the brain vasculature which is a common cause of CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE. Retinal microaneurysm is an early diagnostic sign of DIABETIC RETINOPATHY.

Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable.

Methods used to take into account and incorporate spatial autocorrelation and regional variation into regression analysis models of data that has spatial dependency, and also to provide information on the spatial relationships among the variables.
