L Fidler, K J Keen, Z Touma, S Mittoo
OBJECTIVES: This study examines the effect of pulmonary disease on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and patient-performed outcome (PPO) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients at a single tertiary referral center. METHODS: Pulmonary function tests (PFTs), chest imaging, SLE-related damage, and disease activity were examined in 110 SLE patients.

METHODS: A cohort of 60 Norwegian patients with childhood-onset SLE was examined in a cross-sectional study by high-resolution computed chest tomography (HRCT) and pulmonary function tests (PFT)...
