Scleroderma Foundation - Delaware Valley Chapter

about

Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. Symptoms may be visible, as when the skin is affected, or invisible, when only internal organs are affected. The symptoms of scleroderma vary greatly with each individual and range from mild to severe. For some, Scleroderma can be life threatening due to the severity of organ involvement. Scleroderma is an overproduction of collagen and can cause thickening & tightening of the skin, and sometimes serious damage to internal organs including lungs, heart, kidneys, esophagus and gastrointestinal tract. While there is no known cure, physicians can treat troubling symptoms. Overall, females outnumber males and the average patient is diagnosed in her 40s. It is a disease that affects how they live their daily lives. Over 300,000 people in the U.S. have some form of scleroderma.
