Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Systemic sclerosis is an uncommon connective tissue disease characterised by excessive deposition of collagen and vasculopathy which affects the skin and multiple internal organs. It is associated with autoimmunity, inflammation, vasculopathy and fibrosis. Managing Raynaud's phenonemon, digital infarcts and ulcers in systemic sclerosis patients is often a challenge particularly among rheumatologists. We report a case of systemic sclerosis patient with refractory digital infarcts and ulcers responded successfully with rituximab.
