    ABSTRACT: Introduction: There is a diversity of rating scales that assess function in muscle disease. Definitive knowledge of the content covered by these scales would help in making choices. Methods: We searched for activity rating scales used for muscle disease and assessed their content by linking scale items to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and the muscle regions they cover. Results: Of the 119 scales found, 19 muscle-disease specific and 9 generic scales were prioritized for analysis. These 28 scales contained 457 items, from which 1145 concepts were identified and 160 were unique. 97.8% of concepts could be linked to the ICF; most to the activities and participation domain (68.7%) followed by environmental factors (22.5%), and body functions (6.6%). Global muscle function was assessed most frequently, followed by lower and upper extremity function. Conclusions: This content comparison should allow better-informed choice of activity rating scales for muscle disease. Muscle Nerve , 2012.

    ABSTRACT: A 20-year-old black African-Caribbean male (patient 1), known to have sickle cell anemia (SCA) and on hydroxyurea therapy, presented to our hospital with a one day history of chest and lower back pain. He had a history of multiple previous vaso-occlusive crises requiring simple analgesia. At the time of admission, he was afebrile and hemodynamically stable with no abnormalities detected on physical examination. Laboratory values on admission were: hemoglobin (Hb) 117 g/L (usual baseline Hb 110 g/L), hematocrit 37%, white cell count 14.0 × 109/L, reticulocyte count 216 × 109/L, platelets 303 × 109/L, serum creatinine 49 µmol/L, and total serum bilirubin 75 µmol/L.
