Disease Ontology:8 A rheumatic disease and collagen disease that involves the abnormal growth of connective tissue, which supports the skin and internal organs.

MalaCards based summary: Scleroderma, also known as dermatosclerosis, is related to systemic scleroderma and localized scleroderma. An important gene associated with Scleroderma is XYLT2 (xylosyltransferase II), and among its related pathways are IL-15 Signaling and its Primary Biological Effects in Different Immune Cell Types and IL12 signaling mediated by STAT4. The compounds amiloride and erythromycin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and endothelial, and related mouse phenotypes are craniofacial and renal/urinary system.
