[url="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17133611?dopt=AbstractPlus"]Systemic sclerosis in childhood: clinical and immunologic features of 153 patients in an international database.[/url] This study provides information on the largest collection of patients with juvenile SSc ever reported. Juvenile SSc appears to be less severe than in adults because children have less internal organ involvement, a less specific autoantibody profile, and a better long-term outcome. PubMed. Arthritis rheumatologist. 2006 Dec;54(12):3971-8. (Also see: Juvenile Scleroderma)
