Lung Involvement In Scleroderma
Scleroderma And Elbow Pains
Limited Scleroderma Or CREST
Scleroderma happens when the bodyís immune system begins attacking its own tissues instead of protecting them. This causes the affected area to thicken that in turn would limit blood flow and limit the organís function. Scleroderma can affect everyone but the most affected are women that are between the ages 30 and 50. This rarely happens among Northern Asians and in children and is inherent in African-American women and the Native American Choctaw tribe.
