1. Systemic Sclerosis ("scleroderma") is a rare, chronic autoimmune (arthritis) disease that primarily affects females who are 30 to 50 years old at onset. It is a serious illness that can affect any part of the body. It is broken down into categories such as Diffuse, Limited, CREST, and Overlap.
1 系统性硬化症(scleroderma)临床上比较少见,是一种慢性自身性免疫性疾病(属于风湿性病一类),好发于岁到岁的女性。它能够能够影响到身体的各个部分所以是很严重的疾病。分为弥漫性硬皮病、局限性硬皮病、 CREST 综合症和复合型。
This type is often referred to as the "disease that turns people into stone" for the distinctive skin hardening that often occurs eventually. The hardening typically affects the hands, causing the fingers to curl inwards.
这种类型就是西方人常指的 "disease that turns people into stone"("能把人变成石头的疾病"), 这句话很好地形容了在它后期皮肤硬化所出现的变化。到这个时期如果手受到影响, 它最典型的表现是手指向内弯曲。
There are dozens of symptoms of Systemic Sclerosis, and a huge variance in how people are affected by it. Often the illness develops slowly, with vague initial symptoms such as swelling of the hands, carpal tunnel syndrome, sensitivity to cold, fatigue, heartburn, difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, and reduced endurance.
系统性硬皮病有许多种症状在不同的人身上表现则有所不同。硬皮病通常发展缓慢, 伴随着不明原因的始发症状, 如手部水肿, 碗管综合症, 对冷敏感, 容易疲劳, 心痛, 吞咽困难, 呼吸急促和身体耐受力的减退。
Scleroderma can be quite difficult to diagnose, and many people are misdiagnosed with CFS, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis in the beginning. Many people with scleroderma may have comparatively mild symptoms for decades, while those with the rare form of rapid-onset Diffuse Scleroderma, may quickly suffer disability, disfigurement, and even death.
硬皮病很难确诊, 许多人在开始时误诊为 CFS 综合症、红斑狼疮, 或风湿性关节炎。 许多人可以是几十年症状轻微。而那些患有弥漫性硬皮病的患者则发病较快, 够很快导致残废、功能缺陷甚至死亡, 但患这种类型的硬皮病的人很少。
The Cause of Scleroderma remains largely unknown. It is not contagious or cancerous. You can't catch it by kissing, holding hands, sharing eating utensils, or through sexual intercourse. Only about 1-2% of cases are genetic. Sometimes scleroderma is caused by chemical or environmental exposures.
Unfortunately, there is no proven treatment or cure for any form of scleroderma. However, there are effective treatments for many of the symptoms, many experimental treatments and clinical trials, and plenty of ways to lessen symptoms and adapt to the illness.
2. Localized Scleroderma forms are Morphea and Linear and they affect only the skin (and sometimes the underlying tissues) and not the internal organs. Linear and Morphea do not develop into the systemic form of scleroderma, and they do not reduce one's life expectancy in any way. However, they are often disfiguring and sometimes disabling, especially when the underlying joints and muscles are severely affected.
局限性硬皮病的类型分局限性和线性两种, 它们都只影响皮肤 (有时会牵涉到下面的组织),不会牵累到各个脏器。线形和局限性硬皮病不会发展到系统性硬皮病, 所以不会致命。但是, 它们常常损伤肌肤外貌, 有时还造成畸形,特别是当皮肤下的关节和肌肉受到严重影响时要更加注意。
Localized scleroderma often begins during childhood. Any form of scleroderma (either systemic or localized) that begins during childhood is called Juvenile Scleroderma.
局限性硬皮病常在孩童时期发病, 任何一种形式的硬皮病 (不管是系统性还是局限性), 只要在孩童时期发病就叫少年硬皮病。
