The Royal Free London offers ongoing clinical care to patients suffering from scleroderma and Raynaud's phenomenon and undertakes clinical and basic scientific research into the root causes of these diseases.
Scleroderma is a relatively uncommon autoimmune condition whereby the body attacks its own tissues. The connective tissue underneath the skin and surrounding internal organs and vessels is affected, resulting in thickening of the skin and problems with internal organs and blood vessels. While there is currently no cure, most people with scleroderma lead a full, productive life.
Each year our department runs a number of workshops about scleroderma.
