Morphea and Scl 70 in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted October 7, 2018 Hi Doe333, Welcome to Sclero Forums. I just thought I'd add that SCL-70 can occur in morphea (as well as many other antibodies). There's an old study from 2009, Morphea subtypes are distinct autoimmune syndromes. People with autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Grave's or Hashimoto's, have about a 10-15% risk of developing another autoimmune disease. That means it doesn't guarantee it, by a long shot, but also that the risk is higher than for people without Hashimoto's. Hashimoto's also increases the "index" level of SCL-70. Perhaps you've already encountered all the autoimmune issues that you're prone to. Who knows? The question would be what symptoms, if any, you still have remaining after the Hashimoto's is properly treated, and then, what they add up to. It'd probably be good to study the systemic scleroderma symptom checklist, and to have baseline testing done, just in case.
