Scleroderma is a rare, chronic autoimmune disease which afflicts an estimated 300,000 Americans. Scleroderma is classified as an autoimmune disease. This means that a persons immune system works against itself. The normal immune system protects the body by fighting off foreign invaders such as viruses and infections. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakes a persons own tissues as foreign invaders and sets up a protective attack that backfires to cause problems.
Only 5,000 children in America are diagnosed with Scleroderma. I was one of them.
Patients of Scleroderma are always welcome to contact me.
