    Article - En anglais


    To examine the severity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), as defined by the American Rheumatism Association (ARA) 1987 revised criteria, at the population level.


    The level of functional disability of the 103 patients with RA who represented practically all subjects with RA in a rural community of 13,000 adult inhabitants was assessed by the ARA Functional Classification and the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ).


    Only one of the 103 patients was bedridden (ARA Class IV).

    According to the HAQ Functional Disability Index (FDI) two thirds of the patients had mild or at most moderate disability.

    Overall, less than 10% of the patients in the community were severely disabled.
