Abstract

  • Scleroderma and systemic sclerosis are autoimmune phenomena that can cause progressive and permanent damage to the organs of the human body.
  • They can cause fibrosis of various internal organs, including the kidneys, lungs, GI tract, and heart
  • Rarely, the only manifestation of systemic sclerosis is severe hypertension with renal failure, a subset known as systemic sclerosis sine scleroderma.
