In this video from the Scleroderma Foundation, watch Dr. Jessica Gordon’s presentation at the 2016 Scleroderma National Patient Education Conference held in New Orleans in July.

Find out more about the Scleroderma Patient to Patient Symposium happening later this month.

The presentation Musculoskeletal Manifestations of Systemic Sclerosis focuses on how the musculoskeletal system can be affected by scleroderma.  Dr. Gordon talks about the overlap between scleroderma and other autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and various common symptoms such as calcinosis, flexion contractures, and myositis.

Our resident columnist, Nicola Whitehill, writes about calcinosis and how it affects scleroderma patients.
