Establishment and partial validation of a patient skin self-assessment questionnaire in systemic sclerosis. Because of the low mean Rodnan Skin Score of patients in this investigation, the patient self-assessment validation procedure should be repeated with cases exhibiting more extensive skin involvement. Patient-reported and examiner-measured tethering may not be used as independent instruments of skin involvement. The skin thinness domain may contain valuable independent information,therefore it also merits further investigation. Zoltán Nagy Rheumatology 2009 48(3):309-314. January 30, 2009.
