The Fingers in Systemic Sclerosis


Product Description

The fingers can be affected in several different ways in people with systemic sclerosis (systemic scleroderma). This leaflet describes three common problems, which can occur separately or together - Raynaud’s phenomenon, finger ulcers, and calcinosis, all of which can be very troublesome. In addition, other finger problems can occur in systemic sclerosis. For example, thickening of the skin can lead to what are termed ‘contractures’ when the fingers become bent and are unable to straighten fully, interfering with the function of the hand.
