Figure S1. Education and Skindex-29 + 3 and SF-36 subdomain scores in UTSW patients with CLE. (a) Mean ± SD scores for Skindex-29 + 3 emotions, symptoms, functioning and lupus-specific subdomains in UTSW patients with CLE with high school or less (n = 39), college or equivalent (n = 30) and graduate (n = 9) education were calculated. (b) Mean ± SD scores for SF-36 physical functioning, role-physical, bodily pain, general health, vitality, social functioning, role-emotional and mental health subdomains were calculated in these three groups. Education information was not available for 13 of 91 UTSW patients with CLE. One-way analysis of variance with Tukey’s test for multiple comparisons was performed to determine statistical significance. *P < 0·05. BP, bodily pain; CLE, cutaneous lupus erythematosus; GH, general health; MH, mental health; PF, physical functioning; RE, role-emotional; RP, role-physical; SF-36, Short-Form 36; SF, social functioning; UTSW, University of Texas Southwestern; V, vitality.
