What is already known: Patients were classified according age at the time of diagnosis into two groups; those who were less than 60 years old and those who were equal or older than 60 years.

Firstly, the cross-sectional design and the small population size, secondly, most patients received combined medication and thus, there is a risk of bias on the impact of different treatment regimens on HRQoL, and lastly, the vast majority of our patients had disease in remission. Patients were classified into three groups according to disease duration: Blackwell Scientific, 3 Patients in remission have a greater perception of life, lower emotional and social dysfunction compared to patients with active disease.
