Recurrent autoimmune thrombocytopenia in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus: treatment with repeated splenectomy!


, : Recurrent autoimmune thrombocytopenia in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus: treatment with repeated splenectomy!. Journal of Rheumatology 16(10): 1362-1363

An unusual case of thrombocytopenia as a manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus is presented. Management was complicated by regeneration of splenic tissue resulting in recurrent thrombocytopenia and a need for repeated splenectomy.

The addition of O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to the major nuclear pore complex glycoprotein p62 was examined. Expression of the rat p62 cDNA in transfected monkey cells was detected using a rat p62-specific antipeptide antiserum and two p...

We measured the levels of soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) in the serum of 53 patients with hematological malignancies (14 with acute leukemia, 10 myeloproliferative disorders, 21 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and 8 multiple myeloma), 40 with...
