Lower Extremity Ulcers in Systemic Sclerosis: Features and Response to Therapy. Lower extremity ulcers are seen in 4% of scleroderma patients and cause pain and morbidity over and above that of the scleroderma. We recommend that scleroderma patients who develop leg ulcers should undergo prothrombotic evaluation. Victoria K. Shanmugam. International Journal of Rheumatology Vol 2010, Article ID 747946.
