RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Brazilian epidemiological studies on rheumatoid arthritis are scarce, thus all data currently available originate from the international literature. OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence and some clinical and laboratory characteristics of patients with rheumatoid arthritis in the municipality of Cascavel, state of Paraná, Brazil. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were collected between August 2010 and July 2011 in all health services of the municipality of Cascavel that provided health care in Rheumatology: a university-affiliated hospital, a public outpatient clinic and four private clinics. RESULTS: We identified 38 patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, resulting in an estimated incidence of 13.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants/year. Thirty two patients were females, whose mean age was 47.6 years. The age group with the highest incidence was over 40 years. The mean time between first symptoms and diagnosis was 12.4 months. Rheumatoid factor was positive in 68.4% of the patients, and 18.4% already had radiological abnormalities at diagnosis. The pharmacological treatment of patients was also assessed and proved to be in accordance with those found in the literature. CONCLUSION: The incidence of rheumatoid arthritis obtained in the municipality of Cascavel was lower than those reported in international studies.

RESUMO

INTRODUÇÃO: Estudos epidemiológicos brasileiros sobre artrite reumatoide são bastante escassos, e os dados existentes hoje são majoritariamente de literatura internacional. OBJETIVOS: Determinar a incidência e algumas características clínicas e laboratoriais de pacientes com artrite reumatoide em Cascavel, PR, Brasil. PACIENTES E MÉTODOS: Os dados foram coletados entre agosto de 2010 e julho de 2011 em todos os serviços de saúde do município que possuíam atendimento na especialidade de reumatologia: um hospital universitário, o Centro Regional de Especialidades do Consórcio Intermunicipal de Saúde do Oeste do Paraná (CRE-CISOP) e quatro clínicas privadas da cidade. RESULTADOS: Foram identificados 38 pacientes com diagnóstico de artrite reumatoide, resultando em uma incidência estimada de 13,4 casos/100.000 habitantes/ano. Trinta e dois pacientes eram do gênero feminino, com média de idade de 47,6 anos. A faixa etária com maior incidência foi > 40 anos. O tempo médio entre os primeiros sintomas e o diagnóstico foi de 12,4 meses. O fator reumatoide foi positivo em 68,4% dos casos, e 18,4% já apresentavam alterações radiológicas no momento do diagnóstico. O tratamento farmacológico dos pacientes também foi avaliado e mostrou estar de acordo com o encontrado na literatura. CONCLUSÃO: A incidência de artrite reumatoide obtida em Cascavel está abaixo das incidências observadas em estudos internacionais.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Brazilian epidemiological studies on systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are scarce, and currently available data originate almost entirely from international literature. OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence and some clinical and laboratory characteristics of patients with SLE in the municipality of Cascavel, state of Paraná, Brazil. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were collected from August 2007 to July 2008 in all health services of Cascavel providing health care in rheumatology: a university-affiliated hospital, a public outpatient clinic, and three private clinics. RESULTS: The study identified 14 patients diagnosed with SLE, which resulted in an estimated incidence of 4.8 cases/100,000 inhabitants/year. All patients were female, and the mean age was 41.5 years. The highest incidence of disease occurred between 30 and 39 years of age, and 92.8% of patients met at least four of the 11 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria for diagnosis of SLE. The drug treatment of patients was also assessed and proved to be in accordance with the Brazilian Consensus for Treatment of SLE. CONCLUSION: The incidence obtained in the municipality of Cascavel is close to those reported in international studies.

RESUMO

INTRODUÇÃO: Estudos epidemiológicos brasileiros sobre o lúpus eritematoso sistêmico (LES) são bastante escassos e os dados existentes hoje são praticamente todos de literatura internacional. OBJETIVOS: Determinar a incidência e algumas características clínicas e laboratoriais de pacientes com LES em Cascavel, Paraná - Brasil. PACIENTES E MÉTODOS: Os dados foram coletados entre agosto de 2007 e julho de 2008 em todos os serviços de saúde do município que possuíam atendimentos na especialidade de Reumatologia: um hospital universitário, um ambulatório público e três clínicas privadas da cidade. RESULTADOS: Foram identificados 14 pacientes com diagnóstico de LES, resultando em uma incidência estimada de 4,8 casos/100.000 habitantes/ano. Todos os pacientes eram do sexo feminino, com média de idade de 41,5 anos. A faixa etária com maior incidência foi a de 30 - 39 anos e 92,8 por cento apresentaram quatro ou mais dos 11 critérios do American College of Rheumatology (ACR) para o diagnóstico de LES. O tratamento farmacológico dos pacientes também foi avaliado e mostrou estar de acordo com o Consenso Brasileiro para o tratamento de LES. CONCLUSÃO: A incidência obtida em Cascavel/PR está próxima das incidências observadas em estudos internacionais.
