What is Scleroderma?

Description of the disease

Scleroderma is a rare disease that causes thickening and hardening of the skin, as well as damage to internal organs. It belongs to the group of autoimmune diseases, where the body's immune system attacks its own cells.


  • Localized scleroderma
  • Systemic scleroderma


  • Swelling and numbness of the fingers
  • Thickening and hardening of the skin
  • Pain in the joints and muscles


The causes of scleroderma are not fully understood, but it is believed that genetic and environmental factors, as well as autoimmune processes, play a role.


  • Clinical examinations and blood tests
  • CT and MRI scans to study internal organ involvement


The treatment of scleroderma aims to relieve symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. This may include taking medication, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.


Since the causes of scleroderma are not fully clear, there is no specific prevention. However, a healthy lifestyle can help support the immune system.
