Were you looking for information about Scleroderma? Sclerederma is a common misspelling of scleroderma.
Although scleroderma is often referred to as a single disease, it is really a symptom of a group of diseases. Scleroderma is derived from the Greek words "sklerosis," meaning hardness, and "derma," meaning skin. Therefore, scleroderma literally means "hard skin." In some forms of the disease, hard, tight skin is the extent of this abnormal process. However, in other forms, the problem goes much deeper, affecting blood vessels and internal organs, such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys.
