Summary

The study included 55 patients having Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) for at least 1 year diagnosed according to the ASAS classification criteria who presented to our hospital's outpatient clinic and 55 healthy subjects. Demographic data were recorded for 55 AS patients who were subsequently assessed using the BASMI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index) in terms of elasticity and spinal mobility as well as the BASFI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index) to determine functional status, the BASDAI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index) to assess the disease activity and the ASQoL (Ankylosing Spondylitis Quality of Life Questionnaire) to evaluate quality of life. The Toronto Alexithymia Scale-20 (TAS-20) was used for assessment of alexithymia and Beck's Depression Inventory (BDI) for depression among patients.
