Scleroderma is considered an autoimmune disease that varies widely across persons and can be life threatening. This disease causes thickening and tightening of skin, and in severe cases, also hardens internal organs. Scleroderma means “hard skin” in Latin. This disease affects 300,000 people in the U.S. who are predominately women. There is currently no cure for scleroderma.
