Capillaroscopic Patterns In Rheumatic Diseases

Recommended Posts

Guest Sherrill

Capillaroscopic patterns in rheumatic diseases. Microvascular damage is a typical feature of Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) and more than 95% of the patients present architectural disorganization, giant capillaries, haemorrhages, loss of capillaries, avascular areas and neovascularization, as main microvascular abnormalities. These sequential capillaroscopic changes characterize the "scleroderma pattern" and reflect the SSc microangiopathy. PubMed. Acta Reumatol Port. 2007 Jan-Mar;32(1):29-36.
