Systemic Sclerosis | Scleroderma

Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) or scleroderma is a disease characterized by hardening of the skin. The name comes from two Greek words: “skleros” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin. Putting it together, it makes sense: systemic sclerosis means hardening of the skin. Sometimes, other connective tissues are also affected, leading to a wider range of symptoms.
