  1. ESR erythrocyte sedimentation rate, CRP C-reactive protein, AST aspartate transaminase, ALT alanine transaminase. Spearman’s correlation coefficients were calculated. The systemic scoring system of Pouchot et al. [28] assigns a score from 0 to 12 with 1 point for each of the following manifestations: fever, typical rash, pleuritis, pneumonia, pericarditis, hepatomegaly or abnormal liver function test data, splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy, leukocytosis ≥ 15,000/mm2, sore throat, myalgia, and abdominal pain
