Predictors of Survival and Causes of Death in Japanese Patients with Systemic Sclerosis

The overall mortality rate of patients with SSc was higher than that of the general population, probably because of poor prognostic factors including organ involvement. These factors should be carefully monitored during followup. Atsushi Hashimoto. The Journal of Rheumatology. July 15, 2011. (Also see: Prognosis and Mortality)
