  • Descrição: Secondary osteoporosis is a well-known comorbidity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It is assumed that generalized bone loss is associated with multifactorial causes including systemic inflammation, treatment with steroids, and immobility. Moreover, osteoporosis in RA could add up to more pain and immobility leading to decreased quality of life. However, it is still unclear if RA may affect bone metabolism of vertebra by itself and how bone mineral density (BMD) would change during the time course since the diagnosis of RA.
