dc.description.abstract This study aims to assess the severity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in rheumatology practice in our population. All outpatients and inpatients with RA seen by registered rheumatologists over a 1-year period were included. Severity was measured using the Larsen score for hands and wrists and the Modified Health Assessment Questionnaire (M-HAQ). Two hundred ninety-eight RA cases were included. Mean age was 51.5 years. Among them, 261 (87.6percent) were females. Disease duration was less than a year in 26 subjects (8.7percent) and 10 years and above in 108 (36.2percent) with a mean of 8.9. There were 220 (73.8percent) subjects who had M-HAQ score 1. In 61 (20.5percent) subjects, M-HAQ score was ≥1 and 2, and 17 (5.7percent) had M-HAQ score ≥2. In relation with disease duration, M-HAQ starts with an average (SD) value of 0.7 (0.6) during the first year, decreases to 0.4 (0.4) at 5-year disease duration and increases after 10 years of disease progression to an average of 0.9 (0.8). Mean (SD) Larsen score was 51.9 (29.5) and median was 45. A total of 25percent had a Larsen score ≥50percent of maximum. Larsen score increased significantly (p0.0001) with disease duration, starting at an average (SD) of 36.1 (14.9) during the first year, rising to 42.5 (15.8) around 5 years and reaching 73.9 (36.9) after 10 years. RA severity in our practice is comparable to that reported in Western populations in terms of radiological damage; however, functional status differs, possibly reflecting cultural differences. © Clinical Rheumatology 2006.
