Recommended Posts

Vitamin D Deficiency in a Cohort of Patients with Systemic Scleroderma (SSc) from the South of Spain. Vitamin D deficiency in SSc seems to be high in different European populations, but studies with a greater number of patients are required to identify the exact role of vitamin D deficiency not only in development of osteopenia, but also in different manifestations of the disease, including systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP), disease activity, and presence of lung fibrosis. Raquel Rios Fernandez, MD. The Journal of Rheumatology June 1, 2010 vol. 37 no. 6 1355. (Also see: Vitamin D Deficiency)
