History: Already since pre-school age the meanwhile 49 years old patient suffers from recurrent exanthema of the trunk and the lower extremities which occurred in intervals of 1-3 months. Under NSAR passagere improvement. Significant clinical effects could be achieved with medium prednisolone doses.ER is considerably restricted in his ability to read, so that he can hardly pursue his profession as an employee of a computer company.
Uveitis was diagnosed at the age of 30. Furthermore, he has arterial hypertension, which has to be treated with a beta-blocker.
For 10 years the patient has been taking ibuprofen regularly, almost daily.
Reason for the visitation: renewed fever (>39°C), exhaustion and severe feeling of illness, acute painful swelling of both ankle joints, also of the metacarpophalangeal joints. Simultaneous urticarial exanthema with small spots on the trunk and extremities.
Laboratory: BSG: 50/110, CRP 65 mg/l, neutrophil leukocytosis, lymphopenia, erythrocyturia, discrete serum amyloid A elevation. Discrete ANA, ENA, C3,C4, RF. c-ANCA. p-ANCA.
Human genetic diagnosis: Detection of a mutation in exon 3 of the NLP3 (CIAS 1) gene.
Therapy: IL-1 receptor antagonist (anakinra) at a dose of 100mg/day s.c. Including surprisingly fast improvement of symptoms.
Note: Subsequently, analogous symptoms were also found in the patient's family.
