The association of body image dissatisfaction and pain with reduced sexual function in women with systemic sclerosis (SSc). Pain is an important indicator of sexual function among women with SSc. Body image dissatisfaction was not independently associated with sexual impairment and appears to be less important factor than pain in determining sexual function. Future research should focus on isolating specific sources of pain that may be amenable to intervention in order to improve sexual function. Ruby Knafo, Rheumatology, January 27, 2011.
