Association of pulmonary artery aneurysm, right heart thromboses and antiphospholipid antibodies in Behcet's disease

, : Association of pulmonary artery aneurysm, right heart thromboses and antiphospholipid antibodies in Behcet's disease. La Revue de Medecine Interne 19(7): 512-515

Cardiac thromboses are unusual in the course of Behçet's disease and are frequently associated with endomyocardial fibrosis of the right heart. Vascular pulmonary involvement with either pulmonary aneurysm or parenchyma alterations is also often observed. However, pathogenesis of thromboses occurring in the course of Behçet's disease is still unclear. The authors report the case of a 28-year-old man who presented with Behçet's disease accompanied by pulmonary aneurysm, multiple thrombi of the right heart and antiphospholipid antibodies. The choice of therapeutical strategies for curative treatment of this association as well as the interpretation of the role of antiphospholipid antibodies in this polyvascular disease raises questions.

The mechanism of air travel-related venous thrombosis is unclear. Although immobility plays a pivotal role, other factors such as fluid loss may contribute. We investigated whether fluid loss occurred more in individuals with coagulation activatio...

It has been suggested that aggressive periodontitis has a genetic basis. Monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) plays a critical role in the recruitment of monocytes and the development of periodontitis. The -2518MCP-1(A/G) polymorphism has be...
