Juvenile Systemic Sclerosis: A Follow-up Study of Eight Patients. Our results suggest that in jSSc, Raynaud's phenomenon is more severe, whereas internal organ manifestations and the frequency of autoantibodies are far less pronounced than in adult-onset SSc. Also, the survival rate and final outcome of patients with jSSc appear to be better than those in patients with adult-onset SSc. PubMed, Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2005 Jun;1051:229-34.
