what are joint mice? what are they associated with? osteophytes that fracture and float into synovial fluid along with fragments of separated cartilage - seen in osteoarthritis
pannus formation in joints, especially MCP, PIP rheumatoid arthritis
morning stiffness improving with use; symmetric joint involvement, and systemic symptoms (fever, fatigue, pleuritis, pericarditis) rheumatoid arthritis
Rx for severe cases of osteoporosis? bisphosphonates or pulsatile PTH
type I osteoporosis? postmenopausal - increased bone resorption due to decreased estrogen levels

what type of fractures are associated with type II osteoporosis? distal radius (Colles') fractures, vertebral wedge fractures
in this disease there is a failure of normal bone resorption that leads to thickened, dense bones osteopetrosis (marble bone disease)
in this disease osteoclasts function abnormally osteopetrosis
what level of alk phos is osteopetrosis associated with? normal
what causes osteitis fibrosa cystica? hyperparathyroidism
this disease is characterized by 'brown tumors', high serum calcium, low serum phosphorus, and high alk phos osteitis fibrosa cystica
these are cystic spaces lined by osteoclasts, filled with fibrous stroma and sometimes blood brown tumors (seen in osteitis fibrosa cystica)

what level of alk phos is Paget's disease associated with? increased (normal serum calcium, phosphorus, adn PTH)
in this disease, bone is replaced by fibroblasts, collagen, and irregular bony trabeculae polyostotic fibrous dysplasia
Albright's syndrome is a form of what? polyostotic fibrous dysplasia
multiple unilateral bone lesions, unilateral ppigmented skin lesions, precocious puberty Albright's syndrome

progressive proximal muscle weakness caused by CD8+ T cell-induced injury to myofibers polymyositis
muscle biopsy with evidence of inflammation is diagnostic for what? polymyositis
increased CK, increased aldolase, and positive ANA, anti-Jo-1 polymyositis/dermatomyositis
Raynaud's, arthralgias, myalgias, fatigue, esophageal hypomotility mixed CT disease
antibodies to U1RNP? mixed connective tissue disease

what patients does Sjogren's primarily affect? females between 40-60
autoantibodies to ribonucleoprotein antigens, SS-A (Ro), SS-B (La) Sjogren's
fever, fatigue, weight loss, nonbacterial verrucous endocarditis, hilar adenopathy, and Raynaud's SLE
what are the kidney findings in SLE? wire loop lesions in kidney with immune complex deposition (with nephrotic syndrome)
what part of the SI does celiac sprue tend to affect? jejunem
what skin finding is celiac sprue associated with? dermatitis herpetiformis
what malignancy is celiac sprue most strongly affiliated with? T cell lymphoma
