Changes in causes of death in systemic sclerosis, 1972- 2002. Survival of scleroderma has changed since the treatment of renal crisis became possible. The change in pattern of scleroderma- related mortality over the past 30 years implicates the lung (both pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary fibrosis) as the primary causes of scleroderma related deaths today.
