MalaCards: Diffuse Scleroderma, also known as diffuse cutaneous systemic scleroderma, is related to systemic scleroderma and systemic lupus erythematosus, and has symptoms including anomalies of skin, subcutaneous tissue and mucosae, dry/squaly skin/exfoliation and dermal/subcutaneous infiltration/induration. An important gene associated with Diffuse Scleroderma is HLA-DRB1 (major histocompatibility complex, class II, DR beta 1), and among its related pathways are Cytokines and Inflammatory Response and IL12 signaling mediated by STAT4. The compounds cyclosporin a and cycloheximide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include heart, skeletal muscle and small intestine.
