Fibrosis arises from excessive deposition of extracellular matrix components and results in scarring of various tissues. It is a hallmark of systemic sclerosis (SSc), which is a prototypical fibrotic disease affecting both the skin and many internal organs such as the lungs and gastrointestinal tract.
