Scleraderma

Note: Were you looking for information about Scleroderma? Scleraderma is a common misspelling of scleroderma.
 
Scleroderma is a disease in which the skin becomes progressively hard and thickened. This occurs when immune cells activate, producing scar tissue in the skin, internal organs, and small blood vessels. Although scleroderma is often referred to as a single disease, it is really a symptom of a group of diseases involving the abnormal growth of connective tissue that supports the skin and internal organs.
 
This group of diseases falls into two main types: localized scleroderma and systemic scleroderma (also known as systemic sclerosis). Subtypes of localized scleroderma include morphea and linear scleroderma. The subtypes of systemic scleroderma include limited scleroderma, diffuse scleroderma, and sine scleroderma.
