Abstract:

Background: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) can inflict significant morbidity, reflected not only in patients’ overall clinical status but also in their ability to work. Objective: To examine the cumulative rate and factors associated VARIABLES with self-reported work disability in SLE patients in the Province of Córdoba, Argentina. Methods: Two-hundred twenty-five SLE patients were included. The cumulative rate of work disability was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. The relationship between socioeconomic and demographic data, self-reported quality of life, clinical features (clinical manifestations, diagnostic criteria, disease activity, damage, co-morbidities) and work disabilities were examined with univariable and multivariable analysis. Results: Fifty-five (24%) patients were work-disabled. The cumulative rate (standard error) of work disability was 5% (0.018) at one year, 25% (0.039) at five years and 54% (0.058) at 10 years. In the multivariable analysis, a lower socio-economic status (OR=1.984; 95% CI 1.154-3.410) and quality of life (OR=0.953, 95% CI 0.914-0.993) were associated with work disability. Conclusion: The cumulative rate of self-reported work disability is high among this sample of SLE patients, reaching 25% at five years. Patients of lower socio-economic status and quality of life are at higher risk of becoming work disabled.
