Caption

Scleroderma. Red, thickened and tough looking skin on the hand of a 52 year-old man with scleroderma. This is an autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system attacks it's own cells. Scleroderma, also known as systemic sclerosis, is a rare condition that results in the persistent hardening of the body's connective tissues. It can affect any part of the body and may be localised or spread throughout the body, eventually causing death. There is no treatment.
