Objective:To explore the clinical characteristics, diagnosis and treatment of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis(ABPA) with eosinophilic granulomatous with polyvasculitis(EGPA) as a comorbidity.Methods:We collected the clinical data of a patient with EGPA who sought treatment with ABPA as a comorbidity. We summarized the diagnosis and treatment process of the patient, and reviewed the literature. After that, we discussed the relationship between the pathogenesis of ABPA and EGPA and the diagnosis and treatment experience.Results:A 61-year-old male patient suffered from repeated coughing, expectoration, hemoptysis, wheezing. His blood eosinophils count and immunoglobulin (Ig)E level were elevated. He was tested positive for aspergillus fumigatus. His Computer Tomography (CT) showed pulmonary nodules and bronchiectasis. He was diagnosed as ABPA. He also suffered limb numbness, sinusitis, and renal dysfunction and was diagnosed as EGPA. His condition improved after treatment with glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants and antifungal agents. We reviewed the relevant literature and retrieved 10 case reports, of which 5 cases were diagnosed as ABPA first and then EGPA, 3 cases were diagnosed as EGPA first and then ABPA, 2 cases were diagnosed simultaneously. We found that there was a certain correlation between them in the pathogenesis, and the main treatment is glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants and antifungal drugs.Conclusion:ABPA with EGPA as a comorbidity is rarely reported, which reminds us that when diagnosing one of the diseases in clinical work, we should be alert to the coexistence of another disease to avoid misdiagnosis.

Objective:To evaluate the changes of quality of life in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (ax-SpA) after treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) by the 36-item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36).Methods: 120 patients diagnosed with ax-SpA were collected in the first Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University from October 2014 to September 2015.They all agreed to be treated with the special drugs and assessed by special scale.Then they all signed the agreement.In the 3 months,double-blind,parallel controlled trial patients were randomized to 200 mg twice daily (bid) imrecoxib,or 200 mg twice daily (bid) celecoxib.They were assessed for the changes of quality of life at enrollment and after three months of NSAIDs therapy by the SF-36 of Chinese edition.The correlation between quality of life and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR),C-reactive protein (CRP),Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI),Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index (BASFI),Spondylo Arthritis Research Consortium of Canada (SPARCC) was analyzed.Results: A total of 116 ax-SpA patients completed the study and 4 patients were lost to follow-up.We used the SF-36 scale to assess the quality of life in patients with ax-SpA before and after 3 months,NSAIDs treatment.The treatment effects were not statistically significant difference between the two drugs (P>0.05).After all the patients were treated with NSAIDs for 3 months,there was statistically significant difference (P0.05) of vitality and mental health.The positively significant correlations had been identified between BASDAI and PF,RP,BP,GH,VT,SF,RE (P0.05).A positively significant correlation had been identified between BASFI and PF,RP,BP,GH,SF,RE,MH (P0.05).The ESR was positively correlated with SF,RE (P<0.05);and CRP was positively correlated with SF,MH (P<0.05);and SPARCC was positively correlated with PF (P<0.05).BASDAI and BASFI were the important influence factors of PF (P<0.05);and BASDAI was the important influence factor of BP,GH,VT,RE(P<0.05);BASFI was the important influence factor of RP,SF,MH(P<0.05).Conclusion: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can improve the quality of life of the ax-SpA patients.Imrecoxib and celecoxib have the equivalent curative effect.SF36 scale is suitable for the assessment of the quality of life in patients with ax-SpA.
