Low positive ana, dual pattern speckled, centromere. Positive aca and positive histone ab igg. After c/o skin rash and moderate right hip pain.

Need to be evaluated: A low titer (concentration) ANA test is not particularly helpful to make a diagnosis. Even with a particular pattern (speckled) and anti-centromere antibodies and anti-histone antibodies. Your rash and hip pain are more important as well as inflammatory markers like an ESR and a CBC if they are normal or not.

Rash on hips: Eczema is commonly seen on hips particularly in cold weather. Eczema is red/pink and scaly and can be very itchy. If eczema is mild, moisturizers like petroleum jelly or a fragrance-free dye-free cream 2-3 times a day may help. Over the counter cortisone creams may help as well, however, you have to make sure it is not something like a fungal infection that can look very similar to eczema. ...Read more
