Abstract

Objectives. Scleroderma renal crisis (SRC) is a relative rare yet dramatic event in the history of systemic sclerosis (SSc). Several factors that may precipitate or protect from the development of SRC have been described in previous case-control studies. To date, no attempt has been made to evaluate these factors in an observational fashion. Methods. Retrospective data from 410 SSc patients with disease duration
