OBJECTIVE Spirometric evaluation in juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus. METHODS Forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), FEV1/FVC, forced expiratory flow between 25-75% of vital capacity (FEF25-75%) and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) of 21 patients with juvenile SLE (jSLE) were compared to controls. RESULTS Reduced(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the prevalence of abnormal spirometry in Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) patients and to evaluate its relation with subtype, gender, disease activity and methotrexate therapy.
