Sapho Syndrome associated with Ulcerative Colitis

Sapho syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder associated with Ulcerative Colitis and to a lesser extent, Crohn's Disease. Here are two resource links:
The first is an article written by a sufferer http://www.ihaveuc.com/ulcerative-colitis-and-sapho-syndrome/ with a couple of contributions and comments from other sufferers. 
Here is another link to a more formal article http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1297319X10000126 
Further, see this astonshing research paper of a women who developed Sapho syndrome after being treated with Remicade - which is usually used to treat Sapho syndrome: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/SaphoSyndrome
Hope these help! - Joy
