Caption: Ulcer of the foot in systemic sclerosis. Also called scleroderma, this is a rare autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells, resulting in hardening of connective tissue. Here, hardening and tightening of the skin has caused ulceration. Scleroderma can affect any part of the body and be localised or systemic. Its cause is not known. There is no cure, but ointments and anti-inflammatory drugs can ease the symptoms.
