The Lungs in Systemic Sclerosis


Product Description

Systemic sclerosis (systemic scleroderma) is a chronic disease associated with skin thickening and changes to blood vessels, particularly those supplying the fingers and toes. The hardening of the skin is caused by the formation of scar tissue. This occurs because of an increase of collagen, a normal component of tissues, which in systemic sclerosis, is produced in excess. In systemic sclerosis, scar tissue or “fibrosis” can also form in internal organs such as the lungs, the gut, or the kidneys.
