Abstract

The vast majority of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) complain about fatigue. They also report fatigue as one of their most debilitating symptoms. Yet, in clinical practice, fatigue is only rarely assessed and remains poorly understood. The purpose of this study is to validate the Fatigue Assessment Scale (FAS) and assess the impact of disease activity on fatigue in SLE.
