What the chances of 35 year old mother and her nine year old daughter both having scleroderma ?

Recommended Posts

Hi BillB99,


Welcome to these forums!


It can be possible, although quite rare, for mother and daughter to be affected by Scleroderma. I've included links to our medical pages Causes of Scleroderma: Genetics and Familal Progressive Systemic Sclerosis to give you some more information which I hope you'll find helpful and interesting.


Kind regards,

Dear Bill,

I am very sorry to hear this. What kind of scleroderma do they have? The tendency for autoimmune diseases does run in families. 8 of my 10 female cousins on my mother's side of the family have autoimmune diseases but I am the only one diagnosed with diffuse scleroderma. None of them are first cousins either.


This forum can answer many of your questions as you move forward.
