Correlations with disease activity and nailfold capillaroscopy changes
The digital thermal hyperemia pattern is associated with the onset of digital ulcerations in systemic sclerosis during 3years of follow-up.
One of the most important skin complications in systemic sclerosis (SSc) is digital ulceration.
The coronary slow flow phenomenon (CSFP) is the delayed opacification of coronary arteries in the absence of significant stenosis.
Nailfold capillaroscopy in primary biliary cirrhosis: a useful tool for the early diagnosis of scleroderma
Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is frequently associated with other autoimmune diseases, including systemic sclerosis (SSc).
Early systemic sclerosis: Analysis of the disease course in patients with marker autoantibody or capillaroscopic positivity or both
Our data demonstrate faster progression of SSc in autoantibody-positive patients, particularly in those with preclinical internal organ involvement at baseline, than in autoantibody-negative patients.
