What is scleroderma?

Scleroderma is a rare, progressive, and chronic autoimmune connective tissue disorder that causes excess collagen accumulation. “Sclero” means “hard” and “derma” means “skin”. But hardening skin is just one of many difficult symptoms that those living with scleroderma can experience.
