Unusual onset of adult still’s disease due to asystemic reaction to artificial breast implants

Unusual onset of adult still’s disease due to asystemic reaction to artificial breast implants In this manuscript, we report an exceptional observation study of a young woman suffering from an autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA).

Abstract

In this manuscript, we report an exceptional observation study of a young woman suffering from an autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA). Until today only seven cases of adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD) induced by breast implants have been published. This may be due to the fact that this illness itself is very rare; however, the reason might also be that the community is not sensitized to the case-specific symptoms. Within this article, we show for the first time highly detailed diagnostic test procedures such as PET-CT scans and specific histological staining of the breast tissue, displaying proinflammatory macrophages that are a well-known activator and booster of autoimmune diseases. We hope to give new insights into the clinical picture and pathogenesis of AOSD in order to improve the challenging diagnosis.
