Systemic sclerosis (SSc) and the COVID-19 pandemic: World preliminary advice for patient management.

 

SSc patients are a great challenge for the physician to achieve an effective protective strategy or, when infected, to optimise a real-time treatment as suggested by the rapidly evolving guidelines. BMJ Journals, Ann rheumatologist Dis, 04/29/2020. (Also see Pulmonary Fibrosis)

This is a 'Must Read' for any Ssc sufferer, though maybe a bit out of date with regard to Cloriquine bearing in mind what we now know about cardiovascular risks.  Dexamethasone maybe a more beneficial treatment for any Ssc patients suffering from respiratory distress after contracting covid-19 though undoubtably as the pandemic progresses, alternative treatments may become apparent.

Hi Dimarzio,

 

I thought it was a good article when I found it; I'm going to pin it for the time being, as it's certainly relevant and hopefully will be informative for our members. :happy:

 

Best wishes,
