抜粋

Hypertrophic pachymeningitis (HP) is a rare neurologic disease causing inflammatory fibrous thickening of the brain and spinal dura mater. We investigated the cerebrospinal fluid cytokine profile of HP by measuring 28 cytokines/chemokines/growth factors with a multiplexed fluorescent immunoassay in 8 patients with HP (6 idiopathic, 1 IgG4-related, 1 anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-related), and 11 with other non-inflammatory neurologic diseases (OND). Interleukin (IL)-4, IL-5, IL-9, IL-10, TNF-α, and CXCL8/IL-8 levels were significantly higher in idiopathic HP (IHP) than OND. Cluster analyses disclosed two major clusters: one mainly consisted of IHP and the other of OND, suggesting a unique cytokine profile in IHP.
