Abstract

Objectives: To explore differences in body structure and function in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and controls, with particular reference to joint hypermobility, and to evaluate the usefulness of the Brighton criteria for diagnosing joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS) in SLE. Method: Female SLE patients were, according to age group, consecutively invited to participate in the study. Controls were healthy females matched for age. All individuals were examined by a physician according to the Brighton criteria, and by an occupational therapist and a physiotherapist to obtain the Beighton scores, overall joint mobility, and manifestations in body structure and function. Results: Sixteen (23%) SLE patients and 19 (27%) controls... (More)

Results: Sixteen (23%) SLE patients and 19 (27%) controls had a Beighton score ≥ 4 (non-significant, ns), and 39 (55%) individuals in the SLE group and 22 (31%) in the control group satisfied the Brighton criteria for JHS (p
