Scleroderma is a rare and chronic autoimmune disorder that causes the skin and connective tissues to become hard and thickened. It can also affect the blood vessels and internal organs, leading to various complications. Symptoms of scleroderma include skin tightening, joint pain, Raynaud's phenomenon, and digestive problems, and it requires specialized medical care from rheumatologists and dermatologists.
