The word scleroderma literally means “hard skin,” but the disease typically does much more than that, often affecting the internal organs with life-threatening consequences. In some cases, the joints and muscles are affected, resulting in severe pain and limited mobility. Vascular damage due to scleroderma can result in loss of fingers, toes and entire limbs. The symptoms and severity of scleroderma vary from one patient to another, and the course of the disease is often unpredictable. The disease usually effects women–who represent four out of every five patients–between the ages of 30 and 50; however, children and men of all ages and across all ethnic boundaries can also be affected.
