Progressive Loss of Lymphatic Vessels in Skin of Patients with Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) In SSc, lymphatic microangiopathy is linked to the progression of skin involvement. The progressive disappearance of lymphatic vessels may have a critical pathogenetic role in the progression of SSc from an early edematous phase to overt fibrosis. Mirko Manetti. The Journal of Rheumatology. November 2010, 37 (11). (Also see: Skin Fibrosis and Vascular Involvement)
