Gender gap in heart dysfunctions in SSc

The diagnostic rate of systemic sclerosis demonstrates a strong gender bias. EUSTAR performed recently a prospective observational study using the latest 2013 data extract from the EULAR scleroderma trials and research (EUSTAR) cohort.
The study concluded that although more common in women, systemic sclerosis appears as strikingly more severe in men.
