Arthritis, and Alopecia
Diseases related with Arthritis and Alopecia
In the following list you will find some of the most common rare diseases related to Arthritis and Alopecia that can help you solving undiagnosed cases.
Low match ULERYTHEMA OPHRYOGENESIS
Ulerythema ophryogenesis is characterised by inflammatory keratotic papules occurring on the face, which may be followed by scars, atrophy and alopecia. Prevalence is unknown but the disease, affecting mainly children and young adults, is rare. Erythema with mild hyperkeratosis of the hair follicles resulting in rough papules is observed on the cheeks and lateral aspects of the eyebrows. The disorder occasionally extends to the adjacent scalp, ears and forehead and rarely to the extensor surfaces of the limbs. Symptoms regress with age, although loss of the lateral aspects of the eyebrows can occur. Many cases occur sporadically; autosomal dominant inheritance has also been reported. There is no particular treatment, but patients should avoid sun exposure without UV protection.Related symptoms:
- Skeletal muscle atrophy
- Pectus excavatum

Low match PARASTREMMATIC DWARFISM
Parastremmatic dwarfism is a very rare chondrodysplasia characterized by severe dwarfism, kyphoscoliosis, stiffness of large joints and distortion of lower limbs.Related symptoms:
- Short stature
- Flexion contracture
- Short neck

Low match SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease characterized by production of autoantibodies against nuclear, cytoplasmic, and cell surface molecules that transcend organ-specific boundaries. Tissue deposition of antibodies or immune complexes induces inflammation and subsequent injury of multiple organs and finally results in clinical manifestations of SLE, including glomerulonephritis, dermatitis, thrombosis, vasculitis, seizures, and arthritis. Evidence strongly suggests the involvement of genetic components in SLE susceptibility (summary by Oishi et al., 2008).
SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS Is also known as disseminated lupus erythematosus|sleRelated symptoms:
- Short stature
- Cognitive impairment

Low match HEMOCHROMATOSIS, TYPE 1; HFE1
Hereditary hemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder of iron metabolism wherein the body accumulates excess iron (summary by Feder et al., 1996). Excess iron is deposited in a variety of organs leading to their failure, and resulting in serious illnesses including cirrhosis, hepatomas, diabetes, cardiomyopathy, arthritis, and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Severe effects of the disease usually do not appear until after decades of progressive iron loading. Removal of excess iron by therapeutic phlebotomy decreases morbidity and mortality if instituted early in the course of the disease. Classic hemochromatosis (HFE) is most often caused by mutation in a gene designated HFE on chromosome 6p21.3.Adams and Barton (2007) reviewed the clinical features, pathophysiology, and management of hemochromatosis.

It has been described in four sibs from Myanmar.

Skeletal abnormalities include cone-shaped epiphyses at the phalanges, hip malformations, and short stature.
