What is scleroderma?

Scleroderma (systemic sclerosis or SSc) is a largely misunderstood chronic disease affecting about 22 000 people across Canada.

Systemic scleroderma not only affects the body and internal organs of sufferers, but it greatly reduces the quality of life of patients, who must live frequently in the presence of pain, fatigue and shortness of breath to do their daily activities. So far, the cause of scleroderma is unknown, but some contributing factors have been recognized.

Scleroderma is characterized by excessive collagen production and damage to small blood vessels that causes excessive scarring in the various organs.
