Gastrointestinal manifestations of systemic sclerosis (scleroderma)

1 post in this topic

Gastrointestinal manifestations of systemic sclerosis (scleroderma).


Nearly 90 percent of patients with systemic sclerosis (scleroderma) have some degree of gastrointestinal (GI) involvement, with approximately one-half being symptomatic. Severe GI problems, including malabsorption and intestinal pseudoobstruction, are much less common, affecting less than 10 percent of patients during the first nine years of illness. Stephanie A Kaye-Barrett, MD. UpToDate for Patients. April, 2010. (Also see: GI Involvement)
