  • Acute Aortic Insufficiency in a patient with presumed Reiter’s syndrome.
    Annals of the rheumatic diseases, 1992
    Co-Authors: P Misukiewicz, R W Carlson, L Rowan, N Levitt, C Rudnick, T Desai

    Abstract:

    Cardiac disease is rare in patients with Reiter’s syndrome. There have been 15 reported cases of Aortic Insufficiency in patients with Reiter’s syndrome, with the Aortic Insufficiency developing over several years. This paper reports the case of a black HLA-B27 negative woman who presented with Reiter’s syndrome and acute Aortic Insufficiency. An antecedent streptococcal infection is suggested as the inciting factor. To our knowledge, this is the first report of Reiter’s syndrome in a black woman with acute Aortic Insufficiency.

  • Sensorineural hearing loss in conjunction with Aortic Insufficiency in systemic lupus erythematosus.
    Scandinavian journal of rheumatology, 2001
    Co-Authors: Elena Peeva, Peter Barland

    Abstract:

    Sensorineural hearing loss may occur in SLE, but Aortic Insufficiency has been very rarely reported. We are describing two patients with well-established SLE who developed bilateral hearing loss and Aortic Insufficiency, associated with serological evidence of active lupus. Neither patient had evidence of keratitis, and thus did not satisfy criteria for Cogan’s syndrome. The Aortic Insufficiency in one patient stabilized after treatment with high doses of steroids while in the second patient, who refused medical treatment, it progressed requiring surgical valve replacement. Our observations suggest that the Aortic valve and the inner ear may share some antigenic crossreactivity not shared by the cornea. In SLE patients, with sensorineural hearing loss, echocardiography should be performed looking for evidence of Aortic Insufficiency, which may be steroid responsive.
