As well as suggesting cyclophosphamide or cellcept my rheumatologist has given me another treatment option: PUVA. I know that this is used for morphea, but there seems to be little evidecne of the benefit of its use for skin thickening in SSC. Has anyone had PUVA for SSC and if so what effect did it have?
