The many faces of scleroderma sine scleroderma

Recommended Posts

The many faces of scleroderma sine scleroderma: a literature review focusing on cardiopulmonary complications. Scleroderma sine scleroderma is an occult form of systemic sclerosis that may cause diagnostic difficulties due to the absence of skin involvement. Delays in the diagnosis of ssSSc means lost opportunites to address and treat the often lethal involvement of internal organs such as the lungs and heart. Overall the clinical presentation is subtle and heightened clinical awareness is required to facilitate prompt recognition and treatment. Toya SP. (PubMed) Rheumatol Int. 2009 Feb 27 (Also see: Diffuse Scleroderma Without Skin Involvement)
