TO THE EDITOR:
A 46-year-old woman presented in a regional hospital in the Netherlands with abdominal pain, constipation, and arthralgia of 1 month's duration. Results of physical examination were normal. Laboratory analysis showed an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 97 mm/h and a C-reactive protein level of 212 mg/L. Levels of liver enzymes and creatinine and results of hematologic blood tests were normal. Urinalysis showed leukocyturia, and urine culture showed no microorganisms. Chest and abdominal radiographs were normal. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed duodenitis, and microscopic examination of a biopsy specimen showed chronic Helicobacter pylori–associated gastritis and nonspecific ulceration of the duodenal mucosa.
