The baremés in the literature, both in Italy and abroad, essentially “cover” the needs of evaluation in most cases, not forgetting that, except for specific cases, most of the tables are only indicative. Needless to hide like, especially in diseases of interest in internal medicine, the assessments suggested showing the bands or with the clarification of “up to”.
