خلاصه: Objectives: Evaluation of the genetic diversity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb) and determining if the association between a specific genotype and the site of infection is crucial. Accordingly, the current study aimed at comparing predominant M.tb genotypes in pulmonary (PTB) and extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) isolates circulating in the capital of Iran. Methods: The genetic diversity of culture-confirmed PTB and EPTB isolates were evaluated by Spoligotyping and MIRU-VNTR (mycobacterial interspersed repetitive-unit–variable-number tandem-repeat) typing methods. Genotyping data were analyzed ... سال انتشار: 2019

Abstract: In a study on 391 cases of BD presented to the EULAR Congress in 1987 we demonstrated that the following symp­toms were seen more frequently in patients with positive pathergy phenomenon: oral aphthosis as the initial manifes­tation of the disease, genital ulcerations, pseudofolliculitis, and arthralgia. The following symptoms, on the contrary were seen less frequently: oral aphthosis, ankylosing spon­dylitis. It was interesting to look after those findings, 6 years later, in ... سال انتشار: 1993
 

Accuracy of existing diagnosis criteria for Behcet's disease (BD).

Authers: F. Davatchi, F. Shahram, M. Akbarian, F. Gharibdoost, A. Nadji, C. Chams, H. Chams, P. Mansoori, N. Shafai

Abstract: There are 5 major sets of diagnosis criteria for BD: Mason & Barnes, O'Duffy, Dilsen, Japan revised criteria, and the International criteria (the latest one). To evaluate their accu­racy we analysed their sensitivity and specificity in 2069 BD and 1519 control patients. The accuracy was calculated by the sum of BD patients fulfilling the criteria and the control patients correctly classified as non BD, divided by the sum of the ... سال انتشار: 1993

Authers: F. Davatchi, F. Shahram, M. Akbarian, F. Gharibdoost, C. Chams, H. Chams, P. Mansoori, A. Nadji

Abstract: The diagnosis method by Classification And Regression Tree (CART) is gaining more importance every year, spe­cially in Rheumatology by the efforts of the American Col­lege of Rheumatology. The classification tree not only pro­vides an accurate tool for diagnosis, it gives a better insight of the manifestations of the disease and the value of different criteria for the diagnosis. In this study we analyzed 1992 Behcet's patients (BP) and 1506 control ... سال انتشار: 1993

Abstract: CHILBLAIN LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS IN A MONOLYGOTE TWIN.#C. Chams, M. Akbarian, P. Mansoori, F. Shahram, and F. Davatchi#Revista Espanola de Reumatologia, 1993; 20 (Suppl 1): p. 358 #Chilblain lupus erythematosus or lupus pernio was described by HUTCHINSON in 1888. Even actually it is difficult to put this entity in a well defined nosologic place as systemic lupus erythematosus. We report here the case of a twin monozygote brothers of 11 years old, ... سال انتشار: 1993
 

Clinical manifestations of Behcet's disease in Iran. Analysis of 2068 cases.

Authers: F. Gharibdoost, F. Davatchi, F. Shahram, M. Akbarian, C. Chams, H. Chams, P. Mansoori, A. Nadji

Abstract: The annual incidence of Behcet's Disease (BD) is as high as 300 patients per year. The mean age at the onset of the first symptom is 26.7 years (SD = 9.7). The sex distribution is 54% male and 46% female. The initial manifestation was mainly oral aphthosis (73%), uveitis (13%), genital ulcerations ­(11%), arthritis (9%), and skin manifestations (9%). Clinical manifestations were as fallow: mucous mem­brane manifestations were seen in 95.5% ... سال انتشار: 1993
 

Pathergy test (PT): sensitivity and selectivity in 544 patients with Behcet's Disease (BD) and in 174 controls.

Authers: P. Mansoori, C. Chams, F. Davatchi, M. Akbarian, M. R. Hatef, F. Shahram, H. Chams, B. Nikbin

Abstract: PT was performed by 2 methodes: 1- Needle prick. 2-- Intra dermal injection of normal salin. 83 % of BD patients presented a positive PT. Control subjects were composed of 101 healthy person, 46 Rheumatoid Arthritis, 5 Ankylosing Spondylitis, 18 Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). 3 Sclerodermia, and 1 permatomyositis. Among them 16% presented a positive PT. Only 3% had a positive PT with both needle prick and normal salin method. ... سال انتشار: 1988
 

HLA-B5 in Behcet's Disease, relationship to symptoms, analysis of 543 cases.

Authers: M. Akbarian, F. Davatchi, B. Nikbin, H. Chams, C. Chams, M.R. Hatef, F. Shahram, Z. Aalami-Harandi, P. Mansoori

Abstract: Behcet's Disease (BD) has been found to be related to the first class HLA antigens, the B5. In Iran, B5 is present in 64% of BD patients versus 34% in normal population. The relative risk is 3.33. Uveitis has been demonstrated to be related to the presence of B5. in our study the posterior uveitis was present in 59% of patients with B5 versus 48% without it (p سال انتشار: 1988
