GALLO, Jesica; JAUK, Federico; HENARES, Eduardo  and  PAIRA, Sergio. Relapsing polychondritis associated with IgG4-related disease. Rev. argent. reumatolg. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.1, pp.18-21. ISSN 0327-4411.

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare systemic autoimmune disorder characterized by the episodic and progressive deterioration of cartilage inflammation. Approximately 30% patients with RP have concurrent disease. However, there are three cases reports of RP complicated by immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD). Here we report another case of a 37-year-old female who developed RP approximately 1 years before IgG4-RD diagnosis. The association between IgG4-RD and RP remains unclear.

Keywords : Immunoglobulin IgG4; Immunoglobulin G4-related disease; Relapsing Polychondritis.
