Scleroderma basics

 Scleroderma is an autoimmune condition, involving the overproduction of collagen and blood vessel damage. It can cause physical disability and be life threatening as the skin, joints, tendons, and parts of internal organs can all be affected. Autoimmune conditions occur when the body's tissues are attacked by its own immune system.
