Juvenile scleroderma: experience in one institution.
While scleroderma is rare in children, the prognosis of systemic scleroderma (SSc) is poor but better than for adults. The prognosis for LS (localized scleroderma) is usually benign, however, the skin may become progressively indurated and it may not only be a skin disease. No progression from LS to SSc was observed in our study. Lo CY, Asian Pac J Allergy Immunol. 2010 Dec;28(4):279-86. (Also see: Juvenile Scleroderma and Localized Scleroderma)
