Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an orphan and incurable connective tissue disease characterised by vascular, immune and fibrotic abnormalities in the skin and
some internal organs. It involves progressive organ failure, and it is therefore a severe chronic disease leading to major disability and even premature death.
RMDs are highly prevalent and significantly affect activity limitations and participation restrictions. More effort is needed to improve care and research in this field.
