Measuring fatigue in Systemic Scleroderma (SSc).

The FACIT discriminates better than the SF-36 Vitality subscale at average to high ranges of fatigue, which is common in SSc, suggesting that it is preferred for measuring fatigue in SSc. Pub Med, Rheumatology (Oxford). 2012 Dec;51(12):2177-2185. (Also see: Fatigue in Scleroderma)
