The Belgian Systemic Sclerosis Cohort: Correlations Between Disease Severity Scores, Cutaneous Subsets, and Autoantibody Profile.
To report baseline and followup data on the first 438 patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) included in the Belgian Systemic Sclerosis Cohort.
Pernio is a disorder that affects the unprotected skin regions of individuals who are exposed to nonfreezing, damp cold.
The data underline the importance of preventing MetS in mild hypertensives, as it causes microvascular damage and impairs cerebral arterial perfusion.
The aim of this work was to investigate whether systemic oxidative imbalance that occurs in patients with systemic sclerosis affects red blood cell integrity.
Different microvascular involvement in dermatomyositis and systemic sclerosis. A preliminary study by a tight videocapillaroscopic assessment.
To observe for changes in capillary morphology and architecture by tight sequential videocapillaroscopic (VCP) assessment in patients with dermatomyositis (DM) and systemic sclerosis (SSc).
