Incidence of childhood linear scleroderma and systemic sclerosis (SSc) in the UK and Ireland. We received notification of 185 potential cases, and 94 valid cases were confirmed: 87 (93%) with localized scleroderma and 7 (7%) with SSc. These data provide additional estimates of the incidence of this rare disorder and its subforms. Herrick AL. Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken). 2010 Feb;62(2):213-8. (Also see: Juvenile Scleroderma)
